New Production Level CMM Released at IMTS
Sep 12, 2014 -- Hexagon Metrology today announced the release of the Leitz SIRIO Xi 6.8.8 CMM for the North American market. Setting the new standard for production process control, the high-end SIRIO Xi was designed around key customer requirements for maximum capability across the board in throughput, precision, efficiency, speed and competence. Leitz SIRIO CMMs are also used as gear inspection centers. All types of gears can be measured quickly and with a high degree of precision. Gear cutting tools such as hob cutters, broaches, shaper cutters and shaving gears can also be measured on the Leitz SIRIO Xi. Hexagon Metrology will demonstrate the new shop-floor CMM in Booth E-5202 at IMTS 2014, September 8 - 13, McCormick Place, Chicago.
The Leitz SIRIO Xi benefits from a robust design and can be quickly and easily set up or moved. Equipped with a stylus changer—with up to 24 magazine positions—and a new control unit, the SIRIO Xi offers excellent flexibility and reproducibility, providing ideal support for networked manufacturing processes and serial production process control. With its proprietary rotary table, Hexagon Metrology has once again raised the bar in application and operation technology. The high static overall mass with low center of gravity gives the measuring machine stability, as well as resistance to forces and vibrations. Thermal compensation minimizes temperature gradients, allowing a consistently high level of process stability at ambient temperatures of up to 40 C.
“This machine is a turnkey solution, ready for the production environment,” says Gerhard Ehling, sales support manager at Hexagon Metrology GmbH. “Close cooperation with our customers and years of experience in hardware and software development make us specialists for complete solutions. We know that reliability and availability are key criteria for metrology on the shop floor. Our comprehensive offering consists of hardware, software, sensors and services from a single source. With our broad range of accessories, we can equip the Leitz SIRIO Xi for customer-specific applications and integrate it seamlessly into any production process.”
Leitz SIRIO Xi is immediately available in North America from Hexagon Metrology’s commercial operations and its network of dealers.
