The Phoenix RB from Helmel Engineering Products, Inc., is an American-made, shop hardened automatic coordinate measuring machine for small and medium sized parts. A complete, ready-to-run machine with a compact footprint, it offers a self-contained moving bridge design with a granite table on a sturdy stand that houses the electronics and computer. Hardened and precision ground ways with high accuracy mechanical bearings provide long term reliability, according to the company. Steel scales are mounted on steel structures for uniform thermal response. Mechanical accuracy is independent of the volumetric software error correction, considerably reducing calibration and maintenance cost over time, the company says.
