MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEISS Industrial Metrology officially introduced the new ZEISS CONTURA at IMTS 2014 in Chicago and has now expanded the range of models to accommodate the measurement of larger workpieces. The new ZEISS CONTURA is now available with four larger measuring ranges, up to 1200 x 2400 x 1000 millimeters. The additional ranges include the following in millimeters: 900 x 1200 x 800, 900 x 1600 x 800, 1200 x 1800 x 1000, and 1200 x 2400 x 1000.
The ZEISS CONTURA provides a platform for flexible, reliable and uncompromising quality assurance. It offers a large package of tailored sensors, including the VAST XTR gold with an integrated rotary axis that adjusts effortlessly to complex workpieces. The extra volume in all axes provides even more measuring capability with these sensor options on large parts. Proven navigator technology and ZEISS CALYPSO software let you measure faster, increasing throughput. ZEISS AirSaver option can also be integrated for additional savings, reducing compressed air consumption by up to 60 percent depending on how it is used. Designed and assembled in the USA, ZEISS CONTURA cements its place as the standard in its class.
Supporting varied customer requirements, sensors are available in the direkt, RDS and aktiv versions. Direkt sensors include the ZEISS VAST XXT passive scanning probe. This configuration is ideal for small workpieces, for which a small single or star stylus is sufficient. Scanning makes it possible to efficiently and precisely measure the form in addition to the size and location. For parts with different angular positions, the RDS sensor model is the right choice. The RDS articulating probe holder can be freely positioned in 2.5 degree increments, resulting in more than 20,000 possible positions. Its sensor interface permits the flexible use of contact and optical sensors, including the new ZEISS LineScan sensor.
The aktiv configuration is recommended when high speed active scanning and/or long styli are needed for measurements deep inside a part. The ZEISS VAST XTR gold and VAST XT gold premium probes enable highly accurate measurements with very long, heavy stylus systems. navigator technology from ZEISS, which enables a tangential approach without a stop & go, as well as circular or helical scanning, also results in added productivity.
