Using technology developed for the XM-60 multi-axis calibrator, the XM-600 laser measurement system offers enhanced capability to connect directly with universal coordinate measuring machine (CMM) controllers (UCC). This allows faster and easier error mapping, measuring all six degrees of freedom from a single setup, in any orientation for linear axes. The XM-600 communicates easily with UCC software during calibration to quickly build a complete error map of the CMM, supported by UCCsuite V5.4 and higher. The XM-600 has the same compatibility with CARTO software as the XM-60.

Clamping levers with eccentrical cam

GN 927 clamping levers feature an eccentrical cam, in tapped-type and threaded-stud versions. The RoHS-compliant levers offer torque-free rapid clamping and releasing, and movement cannot exceed the maximum clamping position. There are no loose components, since all are assembled and mounted in order. Thrust forces of up to 1.8 lb (8N) can be obtained.

Ultrasonic cleaning

The GMC stainless-steel ultrasonic cleaning system achieves chemical compatibility with aggressive caustic and acidic agents. Versions of the system can accommodate parts with one dimension up to 35", up to 125 lb. The line’s two sizes are self-contained, supported on casters, and operate from commonly available power supplies, making them easy to move where needed for in-place or utility cleaning. GMC systems include a pump and dual stainless cartridge filtration, a surface sparger, automated controls for heat, pump and ultrasonics, a lid, and one standard basket. A drip pan drains one basket of parts, while cleaning another.
