MCT-StarLight-2-GantryThe COORD3 MCT range of Gantry CMM machines compliment the base MCT Gantry CMM series offering an extended range of sizes and dual drive and dual scales on the longitudinal axis providing enhanced dynamics and metrology performances. Ideal for the inspection of large components the MCT-SL series continue the COORD3 legacy of manufacturing large volume Gantry CMM machines with over 40 years of experience; machines are characterized by supreme mechanical design and structural stability that ensure long term accuracy performance and reliability.

The COORD3 MCT SL Gantry CMM offers a range of medium to large measuring volumes and have been developed for measuring large manufactured parts. Gantry CMM’s can be supplied with dual measuring scales and dual drives on the longituinal axis for improved metrological performance. This unique feature is particularly beneficial for maximizing the dynamic CMM performance without compromising accuracy.

The smaller model sizes of MCT SL Gantry CMMs can also be supplied with an integral Monolithic Base negating the requirement for a special foundation and ensuring that the machine can be moved at some future point; an all too frequent request in a dynamic manufacturing company.

The MCT SL Gantry CMM excels when inspecting large-scale components such as marine engines and transmissions, aeronautical structures, turbines and components for nuclear and thermal power plants and wind turbines. Inspection of large-scale parts are easy to perform with a true Gantry CMM due to its open access structure and with X and Y measuring scales at the same levels offer improved metrological performances.

COORD3 have supplied many of the largest Gantry style CMM machines ever built. COORD3 Gantry CMM models can be supplied with up to a 5000mm Y axis, 3000mm Z axis and X axis up to 20000mm. COORD3 is the Gantry CMM platform supplier to both Zeiss and Nikon Metrology.

MCT SL Gantry CMM models sizes available are: 20.20 | 25.18 | 25.20 | 30.20

The MCT SL Gantry CMM is available in two performance levels. Standard and NT High Performance models

The NT model has a silicon carbide Z axis column increasing the overall stiffness of the measuring platform and providing an outstanding CMM system for high accuracy metrology applications utilizing the full range of Renishaw scanning probes.

When sizing up the competition…its all about TIME

A COORD3 Gantry CMM can be suppled with the Renishaw REVO 5 axis probing technology making the CMM the most productive available. REVO provides the ability to measure component features using ‘Head Touches’; the unique new CMM measuring technique that measures using only the motion of the probe head completely eliminating CMM motion during feature inspection with a dramatically improved CMM productivity and metrology performances.

The REVO can be used in Touch, 3 Axis Scan or full 5 Axis Scan modes.
