 3D-measuring machine “RAPID/RAPID Plus” CNC
Merits of our machine:
Highest precision, robust design, thermal stability and high rigidity
It is achieved thanks to the use of fine materials such as granite or ceramic. Optimized air bearings secure great mechanic precision.

Great diameter of the quill
Thus the rotation round the Z axis is prevented. Ideal for the use of long contact tips. Besides that a fine controlled pneumatic balancing of Z axis weight.

Belt drive at all axes
High rigidity and low wear. Low maintenance requirements.

Modern, flexible contact systems (Picture 1)
All reading systems may be used (contact, optic and scanning) by Renishaw as well as the respective change units of modules. Plane or point laser may be used.

Enclosed guiding route (Picture 2)
Protection against damage and direct temperature impacts.

Double passive dampening of vibrations (Picture 3)
Integrated directly in the machine frame. Thus the machine may be suitably positioned close to production. Active vibration dampening by pneumatic spring insulators also possible.

Calculated sections guarantee highest rigidity, dynamism and constant precision
Guiding parts of natural granite of the highest quality secure protection against temperature impacts on guidance precision and long-term stability
Besides high precision the optimized air bearings also guarantee fluent operation with low wear and vibration damping
Compensation of quill weight by precision controlled pneumatic cylinder
Systems of distance measuring: photoelectric light system by RENISHAW
Resolution 0.0005mm
Feed speed max. 530mm/s
Acceleration max. 1400mm/s

Flexibility of measuring range in all axes
Our coordinate measuring machines RAPID / RAPID Plus are characterised by the highest precision, compactness and low maintenance demands. The machines come equipped with precise optimized granite guides. Ceramic guides of the highest quality may be supplied on request.

In this way the measuring machine acquires dynamics and rigidity.] Thermal stability and high guiding precision provide for the most precise measuring results even without substitution of software compensation. Double passive vibration absorbers are standardly integrated in machines. Machines can be delivered with pneumatic spring insulators upon customer’s request. This allows dampening of especially low frequency oscillations.

Reliability and precision for top price
Air bearings are enclosed as standard. Thus the guides are protected against damage, dirt and direct temperature impact. High-dynamic servo-motors and highly rigid belt drives guarantee optimal positioning behavior. These factors make our machines ideal for scanning. Our machine design system enables various combinations of axes lengths. We shall be pleased to make a machine according to your individual requirements.
