MicroScribe

The Right Tool at the Right Price

The new MicroScribe MX Portable Measurement System supplies CMM functionality at a whole new price point. With metrology-level accuracy, this system enables cost-effective inspection of many manufactured parts and reverse engineering projects. Now you can have the 3D data collection efficiency of coordinate measurement systems at an affordable price.

Fast and Efficient To Lower Your Costs

The MicroScribe MX system can complete measurement jobs faster and with less expense. With the system's smooth-action, counter-balanced, articulated arm, users can quickly position the stylus into even tight spaces. Optional tips further support fast and accurate measurement of many parts and materials.

 

Highlights

  • The right accuracy at the right price
  • Choice of configuration for five or six degrees of freedom
  • Fast and easy, click-and-go operation – minimal training needed
  • Portable – weights as little as 8.5 pounds (3.8 kg)
  • Optional case for easy travel

It's not necessary to spend time converting data, because the system seamlessly integrates with so many measurement and inspection software packages (see Software Solutions, back page). Unlike other CMMs that provide limited third-party software integration, MicroScribe technology frees you to chose the software that's right for your business. In addition, an available software developer's kit (SDK) provides all the files and information needed to create unique Windows programs and utilities. With the fast operation and ease of use provided by the MicroScribe MX system, you can do more projects in house and help avoid the increased costs and protracted turnaround associated with outsourcing.

 

Software Solutions

Seamless integration with premier engineering and metrology software available through several levels support. Visit our Web site for up-to-date compatibility list. Included with every system, Utility Software allows data for some applications that do provide native support.

Select include: Certification routine that calibrate and use most M4 probes Data streaming that lets you points automatically at a time distance you specify Custom reference frame for the physical workspace.

 

Accurate and Easy To Use

MicroScribe MX systems are calibrated according to Immersion's Tri-Test Calibration™ method based on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' B89.4.22 draft specifications for the performance evaluation of articulated-arm CMMs. All systems ship with two 20mm, M4 threaded probes with 3mm ruby ball tips. Convenient probe calibration software is provided allowing for user-provided tips and rapid tip swapping. MicroScribe systems are CE and FCC certified, and a two-year limited warranty is standard. Setting up the MicroScribe MX system, even the first time, takes as little as five minutes. Bolt the base to a work surface with a standard tripod mount or set the system wherever you need it.
