Zeiss will be present at the 2 nd edition of the Global Industrie show, which will open its doors from March 5 to 9, 2019 at the Parc des Expositions in Lyon. On this occasion, the company will exhibit for the first time in France the Rotos sensor on board the 3D Zeiss Prismo machine. This will allow Zeiss to highlight its active participation in the metrology of the future and by extension, in Industry 4.0.
The full integration of surface texture measurement on the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) allows all part characteristics to be captured in a single dimensional measurement and surface finish operation. This means saving time in handling and positioning the part, by having a single multi-sensor machine. This is the only 3-axis sensor (added to the 3 already existing axes of the machine) in continuous measurement, without indexing and without shoe. On the market, there are currently only sensors with 2 axes.
Several styli are adaptable according to the type of part and the change is automatic. The angles are calculated directly in the software for ease of programming and a unique measurement protocol emerges.
All common surface finish parameters can be evaluated in the analysis software based on size, shape and location. They are displayed exactly as desired by the operator.
In addition to saving time, because it is no longer essential to move the part between the two types of measurements, another advantage is the absence of TMS linked to part handling.
