All-round upgrade for DEA Delta Slant gantry coordinate measuring machines

The performance of the DEA Delta Slant gantry coordinate measuring machines has been improved by the Hexagon Metrology team. The enormous measuring range of these coordinate measuring machines means that they are perfect for the quality control of mass-produced components in the automobile industry, air transport, aerospace, heavy goods transport, wind energy infrastructure and satellite communications systems. The Hexagon Metrology research & development engineers tested the materials for the DEA Delta Slant and came up with some proposals for new materials for the upgraded machines. The Z-axis sleeve is now manufactured out of silicon carbide, a material that combines very high stiffness with low mass and a very low coefficient of thermal expansion. From now on, all the models in the complete Delta Slant range will have a structural multi-sensor temperature compensation system as standard. The Delta Slant configuration for workshop duties (SF Kit, Shop Floor) will be additionally provided with thermally insulated covers and forced-air circulation. The further development of the Delta Slant series will considerably improve machine dynamics and measuring accuracy. An example: the MPEE value – the figure that indicates the volumetric length deviation – for the new DELTA SLANT Performance 25.yy.15 it is 4.2 + 3.8 L/1000 microns. Delta Slant coordinate measuring machines now support all analogue, highly accurate Leitz scanning sensors – among them the latest LSP-X1 sensor. In combination with the TESASTAR-m indexing measurement head, the LSP-X1 provides a measuring system with the highest flexibility and accuracy at an impressive price.
