As the sole distributor for Trimos products in the UK, Camberley-based Bowers Group
is introducing what it says is the world’s first truly portable Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), the Trimos C-Line.
Both the C3 and C4 models weigh just 13.5kg, are battery-operated and available with Bluetooth, allowing full portability.
The C3 model is perfect for manual measurements, while the C4 is fully CNC-operated. A simple and intuitive icon-based touch screen mounted on the machine provides ease-of0use, and optional Aberlink software is available to assist with CAD programming and traditional CMM style reporting.
Martin Hawkins, Bowers Group UK sales director, said: “We are delighted to introduce new Trimos C-Line CMM to the UK market. After the success of the recently introduced Trimos Portable Arm, the C-Line makes a great addition to the new Trimos 3D product group.
“Being fully portable, you can take the C-Line CMM right to parts in the manufacturing process for inspection; it’s a really useful bit of kit.”
With a working volume of 700mm on both the X and Y axes and 250mm on the Z axis, its small footprint and high-performance 3-D measurement is the ideal portable solution for any workshop operation.
Delivered as standard with the ControlCAT software, the C-Line allows operators to perform a variety of measurements including; distance, circle, plane, line, and point.
Trimos has been a leader in the field of dimensional metrology since 1972, guaranteeing ‘Swiss-made’ quality from its manufacturing. The company offers a range of solutions that respond to dimensional measurement needs, combining high precision, innovation, advanced design and ease of use.
As sole UK agent, Bowers Group can exclusively offer its customers the full range of Trimos height gauges, horizontal measuring instruments and surface analysis instruments, along with the new 3-D product group which includes portable measuring arms and portable CMMs.
