Helmel Microgage CMM

Finally, the highest CMM accuracies are available to everyone.

Until Microgage, the cost of this level of 3D precision has been 3 to 10 times higher, and the choices have been limited to much larger machines. The need for the highest precision is often found in the smallest parts, yet there has been no choice but to buy a relatively huge CMM for these tasks, wasting money and valuable floor space.

The right CMM at the right time.

Microgage is modeled on the World's most precise machine tools, having a rigid fixed bridge design made of steel. And like machine tools, the mechanical bearings and guide ways, along with motors and scales, are covered and protected for durability, stability, and life-long value. Bearings are classified within 120 nanometers in X and Y, and the entire structure is stress-relieved and thermally shielded inside and out, as well as vibration dampened. Accuracy is intrinsic: there is no software error correction, just pure physical precision. If high precision in small and medium sized parts is your game, Microgage is the answer made simple, whether in the lab or for production. In a world going micro, the Microgage has arrived!

Geomet's software simplicity, yet full with analytical tools.

Helmet's Geomet CMM software has been praised for 30 years as efficient, practical, and easy to learn and use. At the same time it provides all the tools you need to make thorough, competent dimensional evaluations of features and relationships. It's great for starters, and easy to expand to a larger pallet of tools when needed.

A measure-ready high accuracy system includes:

  • Stainless steel part stage
  • Steel 0.1 µm encoder scales
  • Sealed bearings and guideways
  • Ergonomic Desk
  • Renishaw PH6/TP20 electronic touch probe with styli
  • Current PC with LCD monitor
  • Latest Windows® operating system
  • Delta Tau motion controller
  • Powerful Geomet 101 3D software, upgradable
  • Printed user guide and online help for Geomet
  • Calibration sphere and iconic keyboard labels
  • GeoWidget training artifact
  • 1 Year warranty
  • Small CMM for Ultra-High 3D
  • Accuracy
  • Unheard of Value
  • Measure
  • Scan
  • Reverse Design
  • Small Footprint
  • Durable & Reliable
  • Ultimate Laboratory Instrument

Many options are available to tailor your Microgage system to your exacting requirements, and custom modifications for special requirements are also possible.

Note:
Based on a Renishaw PH6/TP20 with 10 mm stylus length, at 20ºC (68ºF) and 50% humidity. Accuracy is mechanically intrinsic without volumetrically compensating software.
