DuraMax® as Gear Wheel Measuring Machine with Rotary Table

Carl Zeiss is enhancing its gear measuring portfolio for the shop floor with DuraMax® RT Gear

OBERKOCHEN, (PresseBox) - With DuraMax® RT Gear, Carl Zeiss has developed a special compact-class gear wheel horizontal-arm measuring machine. Now featuring a rotary table, it fits into any small or large workshop, is suitable for inline process control and thus close to production.

"This new feature enables users to increase their flexibility and save valuable time. They can work more efficiently and cost-aware," says Alexander Dollansky, Product Manager at Carl Zeiss Industrial metrology. A precision system turns the workpiece with the corresponding side facing the stylus. This allows the stylus system to capture, e.g. the geometry of the gear wheel in a simple process without having to repeatedly travel to a new position.

The added flexibility for users is one of the key properties of DuraMax® RT Gear: the rotary table can be freely positioned on the measuring plate and removed later in just a few steps. DuraMax® RT Gear can therefore be flexibly used as a universal measuring machine when other jobs arise. Additional features include its suitability for rough production environments, the proven and innovative ZEISS measuring software, the small footprint and the low power consumption.

DuraMax® RT Gear - for a wide range of applications

Because of its accuracy, DuraMax® RT Gear is available for a wide range of applications. The hardware needed, including stylus material and software are included. If the products being tested change, standard inspection procedures often require significant investments in the inspection equipment and accessories. DuraMax® RT Gear, on the other hand, is a CNC all-rounder that can be used directly on the shop floor. Due to its design, DuraMax® RT Gear can be ideally loaded from four sides.

DuraMax® RT Gear - software

With CAD-based CALYPSO measuring software and GEAR PRO® involute, which were specially developed to measure spur gears and are included in the base price, daily jobs in gear wheel measurement can be quickly and easily completed. Straight and slanted-tooth spur gears, interior and exterior toothing, beveloids and splines are evaluated in accordance with international or corporate standards. With the optional CALYPSO® and GEAR PRO qs-STAT out log output software, you are well equipped to evaluate processes with a comprehensive statistical evaluation of quality information relevant to production.

DuraMax® RT Gear - stylus systems

The accuracy of a gear measuring machine is decided primarily where the measured values are acquired - on the stylus system. Workpieces can only be accurately, quickly and efficiently measured in conjunction with a powerful stylus system. The flexible XXT styli were specially developed for the ZEISS VAST® XXT scanning stylus system on DuraMax® RT Gear.

DuraMax® stands for durability and robustness, withstands rough environments and demonstrates high stability over a broad temperature range. Within a temperature range of 18-30°C, DuraMax® RT Gear is clearly superior to the available solutions in this class.
