The MERCURY FX is a horizontal arm coordinate measuring machine (CMM) upgrade solution that uses existing infrastructure to simplify the installation of the latest, productivity-enhancing measurement systems.
The MERCURY FX is the ideal solution for horizontal arm users that want to leverage their current assets when adopting new measurement technologies. Designed to be fitted onto an existing horizontal arm CMM base table, even if it is a non-Hexagon system, the MERCURY FX offers all the long-term performance advantages of a new CMM system, while minimising disruption to busy workplaces during installation.
The MERCURY FX combines mechanical accuracy with high repeatability and its open architecture, robust mechanical frame and automatic axis motion make it ideal for loading and unloading even the heaviest medium, large and very large parts. Versatile, the MERCURY FX offers a choice between using tactile sensors, non-contact scanners or taking a multisensor approach. And because it operates the latest metrology software, including Hexagon’s PC-DMIS, it enables companies to better capture, analyse and make efficient use of metrology data.
Feature and benefit
The MERCURY FX can be installed on existing steel, cast iron or granite base tables from a wide range of horizontal arm manufacturers.
Compatible with Hexagon Software and Sensors The MERCURY FX is compatible with Hexagon’s tactile, non-contact sensors and multisensor systems, as well as Hexagon’s metrology software, which optimise horizontal arm performance and usage.
Robust and repeatable
The MERCURY FX combines mechanical accuracy with high repeatability, a robust mechanical frame and automatic axis motion to measure even the heaviest medium, large and very large parts.
