Unique high speed optical scanner technology.
The CORE machine from Wenzel employs a unique and proprietary optical scanning technology unlike any other. At the heart of it is the use of a tiny bright spot of light that measures as accurately as a CMM but without the need to touch the part. Because the spot of light is so small the CORE does not suffer the limitations imposed on a CMM due to the radius of a touch probe stylus meaning that it can measure radii as small as 0.05mm. unlike other optical systems, the CORE can measure recently machined, polished and even mirror-finished parts without the need to spray them white.
Designed and manufactured at the renowned WENZEL CMM production facility in Wiesthal, Germany CORE has an inbred pedigree of accuracy, reliability and quality. CORE`s focus is measurements on the manufacturing floor.
The fully integrated optical sensors provide the dexterity and measurement capability needed to rapidly inspect the complex geometry of today`s parts. CORE’s focus is measurements on the manufacturing floor.
The CORE construction has been FEM optimized. Linear Guide-Ways with wide bearing spreads ensure long-life and stable operation even in the production environments from 18° – 30°C. An optional Protection Cover helps with difficult light and shop floor conditions.
An integral, high resolution, direct drive Rotary Table provides synchronous part positioning to the measuring sensor further optimizing inspection cycle through a complete simultaneous 5 axies motion.
Maximum scanning speed is up to 400 mm/s across the surface of the part. CORE has a travel range of 300 x 200 x 450 mm and is optimized for measurement of turbine blades, orthopaedic implants and other small high volume quality critical manufactured parts
