Minimize Tolerance Stack Error
ZeroTouch®’s unique planar air bearing design minimizes tolerance stack error. By providing extremely smooth, high-speed motion of precision stages, this near-zero friction design ensures more consistent performance, minimizing mechanical wear and improving GR&R.
Advanced Analytics Integration
Through industry proven and recognized analytics software, parts can be analyzed by comparing point cloud scans with nominal CAD models and GD&T controls. Statistical process control (SPC) data can drive warnings to reduce variability and scrap.
Graphical Part Inspection Planning
Graphical, menu-driven part inspection planning tools eliminate the need for specialized programming. Plans can be launched easily by recalling the program from MES, or via an optional barcode reader.
