Nov. 24, 2015 – Keyence has released the XM series handheld probe coordinate measuring machine, saying that it can be “easily installed in any environment” and allows the operator to perform 3D measurements with “high accuracy.”
The user selects the desired measurement parameters (elements, GD&T) and measures the target to complete programming. Augmented reality guidance images are created automatically, and measurement points with their 3D elements are visually overlaid, explains the company. Operation does not require any foundation or ancillary equipment, and the system’s temperature and humidity operating ranges are 50 F – 95 F and 20-80% RH respectively. The tool promises consistent measurement regardless of operator, environment or other circumstances by sharing programmed work instructions and measurement parameters. All measurement results are automatically recorded and saved.
