Crysta-Apex C Coordinate Measuring Machine

A Mitutoyo Coordinate Measuring Machine designed and constructed using all Mitutoyo’s experience in CNC CMM technology, this machine is built using lightweight materials and an innovative moving-bridge type machine structure, providing high motion stability, high accuracy, and affordability. The temperature correction function (16°C to 26°C) can yield accurate measurements even on the shop floor. In addition to point-to-point measurement, the MPP-310Q and Metris Laser probes provide a contact/non-contact scanning function.

High Accuracy in the 1.7µm class

The CRYSTA-Apex C is a high-accuracy CNC coordinate measuring machine that guarantees a maximum permissible error of MPEE = (1.7+3L/1000) μm [500/700/900 Series]. Let's compare the CRYSTA-Apex C with CMMs offering MPEE of approximately (2.5+4L/1000) μm. If, for example, the required tolerance on a dimension is ±0.02 mm, then the measuring machine uncertainty should be no more than one-fifth (ideally one-tenth) of that, i.e. 4μm. This means that with a general-purpose CMM, when the measured length exceeds 14.8"(375mm), machine uncertainty exceeds one-fifth of the dimension tolerance in this case. In contrast, as shown in the figure on the right, with the CRYSTA-Apex C the measurement uncertainty remains within one-fifth of the dimension tolerance up to 30.2"(766mm). The higher accuracy specification of the CRYSTA-Apex C therefore gives it more than double the effective measuring range in terms of accuracy-guarantee capability in this case.

Temperature Compensation System

The CRYSTA-Apex C comes equipped with a temperature compensation system that guarantees the accuracy of measurement under temperature conditions of 16 to 26 °C. This system, based on permanently installed temperature sensors on each scale working together with sensors placed on the workpiece, monitors scale and workpiece temperatures and, monitors the temperature and, before outputting the measurement result to the controller, corrects it to the value that would be measured at 20 °C, taking into account the workpiece material expansion coefficient as well as the CMM's characteristics. The combined scale/ workpiece temperature compensation scheme used on the CRYSTA-Apex C gives markedly superior results compared to systems that only compensate for scale temperature.
