Flexibility with respect to object size and location, The DPA systems cover a wide range of application. They will measure parts from a few millimetres up objects as large as entire aircraft. The DPA pro is used for tolerance analysis, roundness inspection and direct CAD comparison.
The Aicon MoveInspect HR allows for very fast, accurate point measurement with the utilisation of measurement targets. Along with the optional MI probe we can now offer a fully portable and modular CMM solution for the highest accuracy and flexibility. The MoveInspect not only offers a probing facility but also full contact-less measurement with quantifiable dynamic measurements such as vibration analysis. Therefore even in the harshest environments the MoveInspect is able to measure efficiently.
