OGP Grows Multisensor CMM Lineup

With large-format FlexPoint 12-Series

Published: Monday, October 24, 2022 - 11:01

Optical Gaging Products (OGP), a world-leading manufacturer of optical and precision multisensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, has added the FlexPoint 12-Series to its family of large-format multisensor coordinate measuring machines.

Made for large, heavy parts with complex dimensions and tolerances, FlexPoint 12-Series measures volumes up to 1,200 x 3,000 x 1,000 mm. The VersaFlex multisensor head is a patented sensor array that offers up to three simultaneously available sensors on one articulating head: OGP SmartProbe fully telecentric optical video probe, SP25 scanning probe, and the interferometric laser TeleStar Probe.

“CAD-programmable articulation of the VersaFlex creates optimum positioning and alignment of all sensors to increase measurement efficiencies and throughput,” says Jim Stern, director of applications engineering at OGP. “FlexPoint CMMs introduce real ROI opportunities by eliminating time-consuming tooling changes and constant recalibration during measurement routines, while consolidating the need for multiple metrology systems into one multisensor CMM.”

FlexPoint 12-Series systems expand the volume range of the family, offering solutions from 700 x 700 x 600 mm to 1,200 x 3,000 x 1,000 mm. All FlexPoint systems are powered by ZONE3, the world’s most comprehensive metrology software.
