The MICURA coordinate measuring machine from Carl Zeiss meets user demands for smaller coordinate measuring machines that are as accurate as their larger relatives but offer a price advantage. This measuring machine is considerably more affordable thanks to the smaller measuring range. Nonetheless, with a measuring range of 500 x 500 x 500 millimeters, it is still the largest in this class. The parts in industrial manufacturing, such as artificial hips, gear wheels, optical lens elements and shafts with narrow tolerances, are becoming increasingly compact while the requirements on accuracy are rising. With MICURA, the measuring technology needed to complete these jobs is now available.
The measuring accuracy of MICURA is less than one micrometer. This is enabled by the VAST XT Gold probe which is able to continually scan surfaces at a speed of 200 measured points per second. VAST navigator scanning technology, which is optional for MICURA, is an ideal supplement. It adapts the scanning speed to the measuring job: where a simple contour and less precision are required, MICURA moves faster. When high precision is needed , MICURA moves somewhat slower.
During development of MICURA, Carl Zeiss emphasized stability and rigidity. The machine features ceramic guideways, air bearings on four sides and a large bearing base for all moving parts. Furthermore, this coordinate measuring machine has an easy-to-use control panel and a temperature sensor to capture the workpiece temperature. MICURA thus combines a number of performance features that were previously unaffordable for small operations and beginners to quality inspection. Several systems are already in operation. MICURA will be presented in Europe for the first time at the Control show Stuttgart in May 2012.
