AIMS Announces 5-Axis Series HB Shop Floor CMM

Pressure to increase production and minimize waste for increasingly complex parts is driving manufacturers to look for quality control processes that are faster and more accurate. To help companies meet tolerances and achieve repeatability, Advanced Industrial Measurement Systems (AIMS), an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of coordinate measuring machines, has introduced the Revolution Series HB Shop Floor CMM.

“Speed is critical for manufacturers today,” says Gary Rockwell, director of marketing and product development for AIMS. “Parts are becoming more complex with tighter tolerances and customer lead times are shrinking. Part inspections can sometimes take two to three days using conventional methods. The Revolution HB is able to cut inspection time from days to minutes for many applications such as aerospace components. Best of all, manufacturers gain speed without sacrificing accuracy.”

Constructed with a polymer-cast base and a roll-around stand with casters that can be locked in place, the Revolution HB is easy to move. The machine runs on standard 110 volt power, so the need for shop air is eliminated. Built-in vibration resistance, mechanical bearings and thermal stability give the Revolution HB the durability it needs to withstand the rigors of shop floor use. The CMM features a Renishaw PH20 probe head which provides superior accuracy and repeatability and performs three times faster than conventional probe heads.
