Mobile CCM for ultra-large components

Especially interesting for
  • manufacturers of wind energy converters
  • shipping and aviation

Due to the desire for increasing capacities and long lifetimes, the requirements on the accuracy of components are growing for wind turbines and other ultra-large components in shipping and aviation. With the mobile coordinate measuring machine (CMM) developed at PTB jointly with the University of Bremen, the manufacturing precision can be tested economically and with high precision in the machine
itself. The measuring device itself has only small dimensions and consists of just a few high-precision components. This brings about a noticeable cost reduction, for instance, in the production of gears and other large-sized components.
