The Crysta-Apex S coordinate measuring machine (CMM) from Mitutoyo America Corp. brings high performance and economy to the 1.7-µm class of computer numerical control CMMs. With a maximum permissible entity error of 1.7 + 3 L/1000 µm, the system more than doubles the effective measuring range at a given measurement tolerance, as compared with typical CMMs in its class, according to the company. The drive features a high speed of 519 mm/s, maximum, and high acceleration of 2309 mm/s2, maximum. These advances result in higher throughput for greater productivity and in lower total ownership and operating costs. The UC-400 controller manages digital servo system control loops for position, speed and current, enabling implementation of various types of control algorithms.
