The ScopeCheck® series of measuring machines permits optimal measuring with each sensor. Using the dual ram approach and the Werth multisensor interface, collision-free measurements with multiple sensors can now be used on the shop floor. In essence, two coordinate measuring machines in one are available to users, one with image processing and another with a scanning probe. The combination of these sensors within a single measurement application is also possible.
The ScopeCheck® series of devices has been developed from the ground up based on the proven technology. One important advantage of the new ScopeCheck® FB DZ in comparison to the previous model can be found in the combined measuring range in multisensor mode of at least 400 mm x 500 mm x 350 mm. Of course, machines with larger measuring ranges are available on request. In addition, the ScopeCheck® FB DZ has been equipped with thinner sensor rams and optimized guides. The design uses two independent sensor axes, preventing sensors that are not involved in the measurement from colliding with the workpiece. Only the ram with the active sensor is used to measure the workpiece; the other ram is positioned outside of the measuring range. This, as well as the thinner rams, makes it possible for a sensor to reach all necessary positions even on a large workpiece.
Furthermore, sensors that are attached to a rotary/tilt joint, such as scanning probes and the IP 40 T image processing sensor, can be used in all directions without restrictions. The same applies to the Werth 90° mirror attachment, whose viewing direction is not limited by the second ram. While the basic configuration contains just one ram, the second ram can also be retrofitted any time later on. For measurements with only one sensor, the ScopeCheck® provides a measuring range of 530 mm x 500 mm x 350 mm.
In the basic configuration, the ScopeCheck® FB DZ contains the proven optical system. Additional sensors, such as the Werth Laser Probe or the Werth fiber probes, can be used with the multisensor interface. In case a conventional scanning probe is needed, a second ram can be installed. This ram can also be equipped with additional optical sensors. The current WinWerth®version with optimized operation for tactile and optical sensors rounds out the design.
