XM-60 and XM-600 Multi-Axis Calibrators


XM laser measurement systems are capable of measuring errors in six degrees of freedom along a linear axis, simultaneously from a single set-up. They are powerful diagnostic tools that measure all geometric errors in the axis from a single capture.

For users of volumetric compensation or error mapping, XM laser systems provide a quick and accurate method of data population. All measurements are made optically allowing use in any orientation.

The XM-60 provides users with a powerful machine diagnostic capability through the measurement of all degrees of freedom from a single capture. By capturing six degrees of freedom, users can discover the source of their errors rather than only their effects as is often an issue when performing linear measurement alone.

Designed with additional functionality, the XM-600 can communicate directly with Renishaw’s UCC controllers and also works with CARTO software. This provides the ability to easily create an accurate error map for each linear axis of a CMM.

Users can measure linear, pitch, yaw, roll, horizontal and vertical straightness in the same time as a single measurement with conventional laser techniques. Measuring all errors directly allows the user to see results as the test is in progress.
