MICURA: Carl Zeiss High Precision in a Compact Size

MAPLE GROVE/Minnesota/USA--September 20, 2011. Carl Zeiss introduced today the new MICURA coordinate measuring machine. This high precision, compact, bridge-type CMM features precision scanning technology with the VAST XT gold active scanning sensor. The MICURA system offers 0.9 micron + L/400 accuracy with low probing force and is excellent for measurements of small and intricate parts often required in the optical, electronic, medical, aerospace and telecommunication industries.

As devices from the medical and electronic manufacturers become smaller so do the components that make them operate optimally. This shift in production is highly dependent on the right quality inspection equipment. The MICURA offers the accuracy to measure delicate parts such as optics and disk drive components while maintaining efficiency.

Compact size offers large measuring volume The accuracy of the compact MICURA opens up the door for measurement applications in areas such as labs or companies requiring high precision. A measurement volume of 500 x 500 x 500 mm handles a wide variety of small parts, a balanced range in all three axes for a machine in this size category.

The CMM uses ceramic guideway technology to provide high stability against temperature changes and all dynamic influences. ZEISS wrap-around air bearings in all guideways provide rigidity and stability at maximum speeds and accelerations. The system also comes standard with a workpiece temperature sensor and temperature compensation for increased measuring performance and productivity. A dual-joystick display panel makes motorized control and programming easy. MICURA's ergonomic apron surrounds the granite plate, providing room outside of the measuring volume for the panel, tools, and accessories.

The VAST XT gold active scanning sensor is designed to provide submicron accuracy with high-speed scanning rates of up to 200 points per second. As a result of these scanning abilities

the MICURA system can complete numerous tasks: form and length measurements, curve and freeform measurements, and reverse engineering. And with the optional navigator technology in particular, VAST XT gold increases the measuring performance and productivity substantially.

MICURA is available with user-friendly CALYPSO metrology software. CALYPSO is an innovative CAD-based software with Visual Metrology. There is no time-consuming, structural programming or difficult code and text editing. Fig.: MICURA Coordinate Measuring Machine
