Large CMM added to inspection department

Investment Casting Systems has recently added a Brown and Sharp Chameleon CNC CMM to its inspection department, this will allow ICS to measure parts upto 1500mm X 900mm X 900mm in size with a dimensional tollerance of 2 microns.

The machine which was supplied by QCT comes with Renishaw probes and a full software suit that allows ICS to produce first article inspection reports as well as to inport 3D solid models from the in house CAD department to compare as designed to as produced. The machine has been installed in its own purpose built room that allows access by lifting equipment so larger heavier parts and tools can be inspected.
