.Types of CMM Four basic types are: CANTILEVER TYPE BRIDGE TYPE Only suitable for small measuring ranges since the projecting part of the column must have short length due to its rigidity They are used for measuring tasks even when high precision is required. because they encompass the entire range of machine tools.
COLUMN TYPE GANTRY TYPE Column type (horizontal arm type) are used predominantly. for example when measuring wind tunnel models. aircraft construction and shipbuilding Gantry type are used for measurements of very large parts in system manufacturing and heavy machine construction. owing to their very large measuring range. but also in the car body and mold making sectors of the automotive industry. for checking sheet metal. . cast iron and steel parts in the automotive industry.
O Dimensional Measurement O Profile Measurement O Angularity or Orientation O Depth Mapping O Digitizing or Imaging O Shaft measurement .
The Advantages and Disadvantages ADVANTAGES O DISADVANTAGES O High precision and accuracy O Requires less labor O Accurate dimensions can be obtained just by knowing the coordinates and distance between the two reference points O Robustness against external force and error accumulation The Coordinate measuring machines are very costly O The CMMs are less portable O If the operating software cracks down it is difficult to restart the entire system. . O It needs to construct some feature on its own as some parts of the workpiece are unreachable by the probe.

PARTS MAIN STRUCTURE PROBING DATA COLLECTION .
Probing THE PROBING SYSTEM .
6-way probes • Use soft probes: compare as zero point & standard: null process. standard = built-in scale Non-contact type probes: • Avoid deforming objects by stylus • Light beam stylus. probe and stylus • Can record movement directions 4-way. microscope and optical probes . 5-way.Types of Probes Hard Contact: • Make contact manually Soft Contact (electronic probes) • Including probe head.
Probe Head Selection O The response speed of the probe system must be compatible with the CMM controller. Where possible the same probe body should be used for a complete measuring application. The probe body should be able to accommodate all the styli to be used for the application. O O .
