Hexagon Launches Benchtop Multisensor Coordinate Measuring Machine at IMTS 2018

The Optiv Performance 322 Combines System Flexibility with ISO 10360 Standard-Compliant Accuracy

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division announced today the launch of its Optiv Performance 322 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, Booth 135202, September 10 – 15, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. IMTS 2018 is the premier manufacturing technology show in North America. The Optiv Performance 322 is a customizable benchtop CMM with a small footprint and convenient upgradability which caters to a variety of applications.

Weighing under 400 lbs, the fixed bridge and moving table-type machine is light enough to be placed directly on existing workbenches and relocated without recalibration by a Hexagon engineer. In addition to saving floorspace, the machine allows for increased accuracy and repeatability at high speed (300 mm/s) and high acceleration due to the stiffness of its granite construction. The CMM features advanced temperature compensation technology that calculates a correction value for measurement deviations to ensure users get consistently stable results. The Optiv Performance 322 is ideal for the inspection of sheet metal stampings, injection-molded plastic parts, profile scanning, and more applications.

“It hasn’t always been easy for manufacturers to find a solution that offers both a small footprint and the ability to meet their evolving inspection needs,” says Marc Stalker, Strategic Product Manager sCMM for Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. “The benchtop Optiv Performance 322 not only answers those needs but drives throughput by combining excellent application flexibility with ISO 10360 standard-compliant accuracy at high acceleration.”

Equipped with PC-DMIS software, the benchtop CMM is designed for flexibility and can measure a range of different parts with minimal turnaround times. The CMM is available in an entry-level vision-only configuration. However, the future-ready machine’s 3D accuracy specification and pre-cabling enables easy in-field upgrades to a complete 3D multisensor solution supporting a range of contact and non-contact sensors, reducing customer requirements for multiple products in the inspection area. The system is built on a modular concept, so the sensors, controllers, PC and measuring software can easily be customized and scaled to changing requirements.

The Optiv Performance 322 is now available to order worldwide. More information is available through local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operations and dealers.
