OGP, the Derbyshire based supplier of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) for smart metrology, has launched the CNC 670 multisensor smartscope system in the UK and Europe. The new machine is the biggest in the company’s range to date and its XYZ range means it’s capable of measuring components as large as an automotive engine block. Despite its size, the intelligent use of space in the mechanical design of the system means it retains a relatively small footprint. Other suitable applications include medical component manufacture, pharmaceuticals and plastics, aerospace, military engineering and scientific measurement. In addition, the CNC 670 is suitable for measuring large electronic components such as flat panel displays and masks or fixed arrays or assemblies of smaller parts.

The CNC 670’s multisensory measurement capacity makes it highly adaptable. In addition to the video measurement, there is the option to combine laser and/or touch probe technology. Each sensor performs a different measurement function and the combination of all three in a single package means that the end user can save time, increase accuracy and consolidate all quality processes into one automatic procedure.

The CNC 670 is fitted with a large magnification 12:1 range zoom lens that calibrates itself automatically after each magnification change. It also features a stable granite bridge that provides excellent metrological stability across the entire X-axis, while dual Y-axis scales assure high accuracy and repeatability. The DC motor and drive package provides XY travel of 200mm/sec. LED illumination, including green back light, white coaxial TTL surface light and OGP patented programmable SmartRing lights, means that the CNC 670 can address most lighting needs with ease. Optional measurement software provides 3D capability with full sensor and rotary integration.
