Extol Shop Floor CMM (Mark 1) with Solid Granite Plate

Extol Shop Floor CMM (Mark 1) with Solid Granite Plate
(XY) 520mm x (Z) 300mm
SKU: EXT-520


Fowler Aberlink Extol - Shop Floor CMM, (XY) 370mm x (Z) 270mm

The next generation of shop-hardened non-cartesian CMM.

True to Fowler's heritage for innovation, the Mark 1 is the world’s first CMM to utilize a delta mechanism.

Designed for robustness and reliability, the Extol CMM will run around the clock keeping your production line running day and night, manufacturing 100% in spec parta, making it ideal whether it is positioned next to a machine tool, in a manufacturing cell, or used in a dedicated inspection area. Five temperature sensors monitoring both the machine and ambient temperature ensure that the Extol is capable of operating in uncontrolled environments and reporting measurements as accurate as if they had been taken at 20°C. The software will also warn you the temperature changes to quickly for repeatable results.

The Automatic Tool Offset Correction available with the FUSION software compliments the attributes of the Extol perfectly allowing utilization as part of a fully automated production process in the midst of a manufacturing environment.

The ergonomics of the Extol have rethought with the operator unmind. design factor. It is not only quick and easy to perform one-off inspections, but also has ample access for either batch inspection or to facilitate automatic loading. The Extol has the largest measuring volume for the footprint of any CMM in a robotic cell. Robust, accurate and reliable, the Extol CMM is the perfect solution to automatically verify part quality for critical components.


  • Fully sealed recirculating bearings proven in the machine tool market significantly improve smoothness and and long term accuracy
  • A directly coupled belt-drive system eliminates the need for a gearbox and any associated backlash issues
  • Swiss-made DC motors and a new Deva motion control system provide unparalleled reliability that is needed for shop floor CMM inspection
  • The super-smooth belt-drives and linear bearings also enable long styli to be used without suffering false triggering due to vibration
  • Automatic Tool Offset Correction and Automation options allow integration into fully automated manufacturing cells
  • The Extol can support the TP200B probe which uses strain gage technology, so it does not exhibit lobing characteristics making it ideal for high accuracy applications. In addition, the TP200 probe has a longer life expectancy compared to the TP20, also making it ideal for automated and high-volume applications.
