In addition to proven measuring technology, Carl Zeiss also delivers modular, robot-based cell solutions that can be precisely tailored to customer needs. This ensures that not only the system borders are clearer: planning efforts are more transparent; automated and process- integrated measuring becomes easier and better calculable. The inline-capable coordinate measuring machines from Carl Zeiss, GageMax® for example, offer the ideal foundation for process integration. Resistant to temperature fluctuations, robust, vibration-absorbent and highly dynamic, these measuring machines provide the foundation for the flexible capture of measurement data in highly automated production environments.
In a versatile, highly automated production environment, measuring technology must be an efficient element with standard interfaces of the entire production process. These modules facilitate the fast and easy connection to peripheral devices and thus integration into the automated flow of production and materials. GageMax can be completely integrated into the safety strategy of an interlinked production center.
Robotics and inline measuring technology together create the potential for zero-defect production with foreseeable costs. With the joint benefits of flexibility and adaptability, an intelligent combination of robot and coordinate measuring technology provides the necessary symbiosis to react to shorter product and innovation cycles, as well as the increased variety of models in modern production environments.
Success through location-specific automation
Due to different requirements, production environments and strategies must be explored and developed based on the industry and country. Long-term success is only ensured if the right automation system is in place. The correct level of automation is a key success factor for sustained development at the locations of global companies. A long-term oriented automation strategy is a must for sustained business success even in low-wage countries. Certain product quality criteria can only be met with the corresponding CNC technologies. Quality techniques that objectively assess the product quality and verifiably document the results are necessary for this, GageMax for example. Only then is it possible to achieve an economical, quality-oriented production center. Primarily in the automotive industry, the supplier chain can only ensure a successful customer-supplier relationship with largely standardized quality protocols based on automated processes. Robotics and inline measuring technology correspond to a trend that will become even more pronounced in the future.
GageMax from Carl Zeiss – inline automation
Accessible from three sides, the lowered table on GageMax permits fast pallet feeding and automated loading/unloading with a robot. This increases the integration possibilities of GageMax in interlinked production systems. Furthermore, VAST® technology turns GageMax into a very fast, highly efficient scanning system that seamlessly fits directly into production without taking up a lot of space.
