‘Plug in and play’ solution for CMM calibrationsNottingham-based Status Metrology Solutions Ltd — a supplier of new and used coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), as well as training, maintenance and measurement services — has invested in a Wyler Blue System for the in-house laser calibration of CMMs.

Supplied by sole UK agent Bowers Group (www.bowersgroup.co.uk), this system includes a Zerotronic digital inclinometer sensor and is fully compatible with the Renishaw XL-80 laser system already used by Status Metrology.

Dean Tillett, operations director at Status (www.status-cmm.co.uk), said: “The bespoke system from Wyler provided by Bowers Group has met the needs of our CMM retrofitting and service products.

It’s a ‘plug in and play’ solution that is compatible with our software; no additional software is needed, and no additional set up is required.”

Status uses a Renishaw XL-80 laser system for the CMM’s error map creation with a Hexagon RC1 controller, but it needed an inclination measurement solution that was fully compatible with the controller’s service tools to allow full error mapping.

Tight tolerances regarding roll, pitch, straightness, squareness and scale errors must be met to assure the high accuracy of the CMM, as well as allowing for volumetric error map adjustment.

Founded in 1982, Status Metrology specialises in CMM retrofits and upgrades for all types of machines, plus contract measurement, contract part programming, calibration, servicing and repair.

Its customers work in precision engineering and manufacturing, mainly in the aerospace, automotive, innovation and prototyping sectors.
