Wenzel’s X-Checker coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) perform in shop-floor production applications with inconsistent environmental conditions. The system can be used as a touch probe or scanning CMM. Components include CNC controller, Renishaw electronics, and PC mounted inside a lockable controller cabinet. A flat-screen monitor and keyboard are mounted on an ergonomic swivel arm. The CMM can be supplied with the Renishaw TP20, TP200 probing systems, or the SP25 scanning probe. OpenDMIS CAD software allows for both CMM programming and reporting. The Xecute interface enables both skilled and unskilled operators to launch inspection programs. The system has a maximum 3-D measuring speed of 700 mm/s with maximum acceleration of 2000 mm/s². The CMM has a measuring range of 750 x 1000 x 500 mm.
