Looking to shorten tactile measurement cycles? Enhance your efficiency when measuring geometric size features with the GLOBAL Touch+ Coordinate Measuring Machine
Using a highly versatile and accurate 6-way touch-trigger probe with a motorised indexing probe head to flexibly position the probe during measurement, the GLOBAL Touch+ model is configured to provide outstanding tactile single‑point measurement performance on prismatic parts.
Optimal feature accessibility and minimised stylus changes are guaranteed even for the most intricate 3D part geometries. In addition, a multi-port module changer rack allows fast and repeatable changing of probe modules with different trigger forces and styli configurations without recalibration, further contributing to streamlining measuring cycles.
Features and benefits
GLOBAL CMMs are built on advanced design principles to inspire certainty and confidence. They combine quality components and state-of-the-art technologies for long-term stability, reduced measurement uncertainty, adaptability to harsh measuring environments, fast measuring point capture and an advanced user experience. These metrology solutions will provide manufacturers with maximum value over the entire lifecycle.
Sturdy mechanical design
The solid granite base with integrated dovetail guide guarantees long‑term system stability and consistent accuracy over the entire measurement volume.
Bridge with triangular crossbeam
Featuring an improved stiffness-to-mass ratio relative to square or rectangular traverses, this design allows for the highest dynamics and high‑speed measurements.
Preloaded air bearings on all axes
Contactless, low-friction and low-wear axis motion ensures fast and repeatable positioning at all speeds and accelerations, resulting in low measuring uncertainties.
Low-maintenance belt drive system
Flat and V-ribbed belts ensure smooth and low-vibration axis motion.
Real‑time compensation of thermally caused measurement deviations through temperature sensing at the scales and on the workpiece ensures reliable measurement results.
Extended temperature operating range (option)
Measure your components with more resistance to environmental influences. An extended temperature operating range (15 - 30°C) allows the CMM to operate closer to the production line without needing a costly climate room.
Real-time environmental monitoring (option)
PULSE enables the user to monitor and log any environmental conditions surrounding the CMM and receive real‑time machine information.
Eco Mode supports sustainability and productivity goals by automatically powering down the CMM when idle, which improves energy efficiency while keeping the machine ready to go.
Messaging lights (option)
Messaging lights give operators the ability to monitor the machine’s status even from a distance, to optimise time and resource management.
High-speed and safety
Continuous monitoring of a defined safety area around the CMM allows worry-free high-speed measurement in CNC mode. The machine will slow down automatically when the user or an object encroaches upon the protected area.
The future‑ready pre‑cabling enables easy adaptation of the CMMs to future measurement tasks without costly downtime. A range of adaptability options can be flexibly selected during initial CMM configuration or set up later as upgrades.
