Zeiss Bridge-Type measuring machines

For faster, more precise measurements, take a look at the range of bridge-type CMMs. These offer surface roughness sensor technology, for a more efficient throughput of parts that require both geometry and surface roughness measurements.




Carl Zeiss Contura Bridge-Type CMM

  • Active scanning measuring technology
  • Length measurement error E0 from 1.5 + L/350 μm
  • Available with four sensor configurations and in eight measuring ranges
  • Comes with a fixed passive sensor, the flexible RDS articulating probe holder or with an active scanning probe. All sensor variations enable scanning
  • ZEISS navigator technology comes standard with the active version
  • Ceramic or CARAT guideways for high rigidity, low thermal expansion and minimal moving weights
  • Air bearings in all three axes ensure consistent stability even at high travel speeds and acceleration
  • Floating glass ceramic scales are practically expansion free and therefore do not require any additional temperature sensors or mathematical compensation.
  • Suitable for the shop floor and are protected against contamination and other influences.
  • Sensor variations

Zeiss Micura

Carl Zeiss Micura Bridge-Type CMM

  • Maximum precision for measuring small, complex parts featuring narrow tolerances such as those used in optics and electronics
  • Length measurement error E0 from 0.7 + L/400 μm Measuring range 500 x 500 x 500
    Offers active scanning with measuring accuracy of less than one micrometer
  • Equipped as standard with VAST XXT scanning sensor from ZEISS
  • VAST XT gold sensor (optional) enables high-speed scanning featuring up to 200 measuring points per second
  • The smallest stylus has a diameter of just 0.3 millimeters
  • Ceramic guideways and a large bearing base minimize susceptibility to external influences
  • ZEISS air bearings on four sides guarantee stability and precision
  • ZEISS MICURA also comes with a temperature sensor for the workpiece
  • The probing force of the sensor is actively regulated and is very low – ideal for sensitive materials
  • Controller technology, software, sensors and additional components are made by ZEISS and are finely tuned to each other
