Heavy Duty Rotary (HDR)

Machine tool type rotary designed to hold heavy parts

The Heavy Duty Rotary (HDR) is a machine tool type rotary designed to hold heavy parts up to 30 kg-cm. It brings true fourth-axis measurement to select floor model SmartScope® systems equipped with MeasureMind® 3D or ZONE3 metrology software. With the HDR, parts may be automatically rotated during the measurement routine to present practically any view to the system, without the need to re-measure datum features after rotation.

Rotary axis calibration routines locate the rotary axis in space and correlate all feature measurements to it and the XYZ axes of the measurement system. Relational measurements between features measured at different rotary positions are easily determined by simply picking the features from the software’s interactive model.

The Heavy Duty Rotary (HDR) Dual Rotary stage provides true 4th axis control, eliminates multiple fixtures, provides one origin setup for all features, measures complex geometries, and measures features on any compound angle and measures turbine blades, injectors, complex prismatic parts, etc.

The HDR rotary can be paired with an MTR or second HDR rotary to add a fifth axis of rotation.
