Improved Vertical CMM

Hexagon Metrology Inc.’s Endeavor 3 CMM is the next generation of its Endeavor CMM product line.

Hexagon Metrology Inc.’s Endeavor 3 CMM is the next generation of its Endeavor CMM product line. This line of vertical coordinate measuring machines introduces new sizes, additional models, improved sensor support and a boost in accuracy performance from the previous generation. The machine is designed to address a range of dimensional measurement requirements for the start-up manufacturer purchasing its first coordinate measuring machine, to a large manufacturing operation looking for multiple CMMs with a maximum price-to-performance ratio.

Offered in two models, this machine is suitable for touch trigger applications, while the Endeavor 3 Plus is targeted at more demanding tactile and non-contact scanning applications. The Endeavor 3 Plus offers extensive sensor support including the Leitz family of LSP tactile scanning probes plus the new LSP-X1 and the LSP-X3. In addition, it supports the CMM-V and CMM-Ve vision sensors, and the ScanShark non-contact laser scanning sensor.

We have expanded the number and type of supported sensors, and now offer nine standard sizes ranging from 5.5.5 up to 12.30.10.
