Especially small and medium-sized companies such as design studios, metal-working companies or joineries are on the lookout for affordable easy-to-use scribing and measuring tools. The new manually operated DEA TRACER is just that. Medium- to large-sized workpieces can be controlled with this CMM. By exchanging the measurement head with a scribing holder the multi-functional DEA TRACER is ready for different scribing applications.
Simplicity is the core idea behind DEA TRACER when it comes to installation, handling and servicing. The entry-level scribing and measuring system is based on a horizontal arm structure which facilitates loading of the parts, such as design models, mould and die cores, carpentry structures or sheet metal parts. For ideal ergonomics the horizontal arm is always balanced out. Users can position the arm precisely without fatigue, also after extensive use. Sliding and locking of the axes is handled via control knobs and independent brakes on each axis. The axes slide on linear guideways and recirculating bearings. Thus, air supply is not necessary.
As a standard DEA TRACER is available with a single arm, the touch-trigger TESASTAR probe head and a digital readout. To extend the system’s functionality users can select from various options such as double arm configuration, TESASTAR-i probe head, PC-DMIS measurement software, different worktables as well as the scribing kit. The open concept of this CMM makes both possible: dimensional inspection of parts as well as scribing of workpieces – for example clay models or cast iron parts.
The new DEA TRACER is available at Hexagon Metrology as of now in Europe, Asia-Pacific and South America.
