With measuring cross-section 650mm x 650mm the machine is aimed at the small and medium part inspection market and in particular budget for customers seeking an advanced CMM with outstanding performance.
The NT-XL features a Silicon Carbide Z column providing outstanding rigidity allowing class leading accuracies. The high technology alloy frame of the CMM allows benchmark measuring speeds and accelerations.
The NT-XL is available in 700 | 1000 & 1200mm lengths with volumetric measuring accuracy of 2.2 + 3.3L/1000 and 500mm/sec velocity and 1700mm/sec/sec acceleration.
COORD3 – Geared for Future Growth
Through its partnership with PECO USA COORD3 introduced its new range of Gear Inspection Machines.

UNIVERSAL CMM Range Extended
Launched last year the highly successful UNIVERSAL is a next generation of bridge CMM; the 20.15.10 model was displayed at the Open House measuring with Renishaw SP25 scanning probe.
The high performance UNIVERSAL 15 series CMM offers 1500mm of bridge travel and is aimed at measuring larger manufactured parts with outstanding performance. Wireless thermal compensation allow accurate inspection in less than perfect operating conditions.
UNIVERSAL reduced CMM assembly time necessary by almost 50% allowing COORD3 to grow dramatically its annual CMM production without increasing manufacturing space or production personal.
