IDMS and CMM Systems
IDMS - Keyence IM 7,000 Image Dimension Measurement System

With the continued investment that Capalex is committed to, we have acquired a new, state of the art Keyence IM 7,000 series Image Dimension Measurement System.

Allowing fast, consistent and easy operation, this ensures the tight tolerances Capalex prides itself on are met, whilst making the inspection process very efficient.

Drastically Reduced Measurement and Recording Times

The Keyence IM 7,000 series automatically recognises the orientation of the profile meaning the precise positioning of the part is not necessary.

It can then instantly compare this against the dimensions and tolerances we have on file for each profile.

Easily performing 100 measurements simultaneously, all relevant dimensions are taken, and any dimensions that are out of tolerance are highlighted.

Inspection records can also be completed in seconds, with full analysis reports available to both print and store electronically.

Coordinate Measuring Machine

Capalex have further enhanced their inspection facilities with the introduction of a Coordinate Measuring Machine, or CMM.

A CMM is a 3D measuring device that we use to measure precision aluminium machined parts, components and extrusions.

The software portion allows the machine to measure for inspection purposes as well as, and often this can be very important to a customer with an old part, as we can reverse engineer from a sample part.
