It has a number of impressive and innovative features. Users no longer have to choose between manual and automatic measurements, because the two-in-one concept of the MH3D-DUAL provides both. This means that a sequence of measurements can be made automatically and manually with just one machine.
The MH3D-DUAL is designed for a broad target group, as measurement specialists are no longer needed to operate the machine. The fast and flexible data management system offers six different solutions for taking measurements and, regardless of the type of user, helps to select the best solution. The user-friendly automation function, combined with TESA-REFLEX software, makes the measurement process easier. The software also allows the measured data to be incorporated into a PDF file and printed out. The compatibility of the system with Q‑DAS is guaranteed.
A palette system increases the efficiency of the measurement process even further by enabling a complete pallet of parts to be measured automatically on the basis of a manual sequence. Hexagon Metrology has designed the control panel to withstand dust and oil particles, which means that the MH3D-DUAL can be used both in the laboratory and on the shop floor.
Marcel Bila, Marketing Director at TESA, explains: “The main objective of this machine is to make the measuring process simple, comprehensible and productive. The increase in efficiency allows for a rapid ROI, which makes the versatile MH3D-DUAL a profitable choice.” This machine, which represents the missing link between manual and automatic solutions, is available on the market from mid-September 2013 and measures to an accuracy of 2.5 micrometres.
