A new coordinate measuring machine (CMM) by LK Metrology, Inc is using five axes to make complex measurements for verifying dimensional accuracy and inspecting the surface finish of components. Without leaving the surface of the component being measured, the stylus can capture coordinates of up to 4,000 points per second.
Above, the SCANtek 5 recently introduced by LK Metrology. The component being measured by the machine has a complex surface area with many grooves and holes.
