Trace-A-Matic Corporation has installed a new Hexagon Global Advantage CMM (coordinate measuring machine) in Plant 5 at their Brookfield, WI location. The bridge-style CMM is optimized to measure large dimensional components having complex geometries with accuracy and speed. It is capable of gauging machined parts up to 79” x 130” x 59” at a maximum weight of 14,300 pounds. The company has the same CMM model in use at its Plant 2. The new installation provides full-contact analog scanning capability and doubles large part inspection capacity to support the company’s Wisconsin operations.
“Large machined parts require large measurement solutions,” Shawn Lang, Vice President of Engineering at Trace-A-Matic, said in a statement. “Quality, precision, and timely turnaround are a top priority. The newly added CMM provides capacity and makes our inspection operations even more efficient.”
