Fowler FUSION Mark 1 - Shop Floor  CMM, (XY) 520mm 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 Mark 1 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 Mark 1 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 Mark 1 perfectly allowing utilization as part of a fully automated production process in the midst of a manufacturing environment.

The ergonomics of the Mark 1 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 Mark 1 has the largest measuring volume for the footprint of any CMM in a robotic cell. Robust, accurate and reliable, the Mark 1 CMM is the perfect solution to automatically verify part quality for critical components.

Features:

  • 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 Mark 1 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.
