CORE – THE Optical CMM

The Wenzel CORE is the best machine to measure turbine blades, medical implants and any other difficult to measure part with the same awkward characteristics of the blades and knee joints (polished surfaces, sharp edges, tiny features).

Like with any Wenzel Metrology System the key to success is in the structure, the sensor, the speed, the implementation, the support and the accuracy.

Why is the CORE the best?

IT'S IN THE MATH


Here are some numbers for the CORE;

Accuracy  
Scanning / movement speed  
Blade length  
Cycle time  
Footprint  
Calibration time  
ISO calibration test  
Shop floor operation  
Robotic Interface Protocol  
Axes of operation  
Access problems for blades  
Point cloud handling experience needed  
Point cloud stitching experience needed  
Point cloud sectioning experience needed  
Budget for spray paint  
Budget for CMM room/enclosure  
Cost of compressed air  
Tip radius compensation error  
Maximum out of plane error  
Max degrees from surface normal  
Number of cameras in the sensor  
Number of days training  
Speed of light  

Number of minutes you’ll regret buying one?

CORE is a shop-floor, optical CMM which we say “measures at the speed of light”. If fact, the CO at the start of the product name is a corruption of Cₒ, the symbol for the speed of light in a vacuum.

If you would like more information about the CORE, watch our video presentation below and then contact us for your free time study and gage R&R test.
