Materials-engineering company Wall Colmonoy has purchased Aberlink’s Axiom Too and Zenith Too Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) to enable its vacuum-brazing and heat-treatment operations

Based within the company’s machine shop, the Axiom Too allows machine operators to make regular in-process checks and measure first-off components.

The larger Aberlink Zenith Too CNC CMM is situated in Wall Colmonoy’s environmentally controlled inspection department, where it is used to accurately measure single large components and multiple, jig-mounted smaller parts.

The Zenith Too CMM range has attracted orders from customers involved in the aerospace, automotive and heavy-engineering industries.

The Zenith CMM series encompasses 10 machines with XYZ specifications from 1,000 x 1,000 x 600mm to 1,000 x 3,000 x 800mm.

The Zenith Too’s cutting edge, all-aluminium construction, advanced drive design and raised guideways ensure that the machine’s low-inertia characteristics guarantee speed of operation.

The machines’ accuracy and repeatability figures are further aided as the range’s measuring structure is completely independent of the machine’s granite surface table.

The Aberlink series is suited for use within environmentally controlled inspection areas and on the shop floor, where its low thermal mass and robust characteristics enable the accurate measurement of medium/large or multiple components to take place nearer to their point of manufacture.

The Zenith Too’s hardware is complemented by Aberlink’s intuitive Windows-based software.

A byproduct of any Zenith Too CMM inspection routine is that a simultaneous picture of the measured component is created in real time on the operator’s computer screen.

Dimensions between the measured features, mirroring those that appear on the component’s drawing, are then picked off as required.
