Alubend Expands our CMM Capabilities for Aluminium Extrusion Bending Quality Checking
Within the field of aluminium extrusion bending, tolerances and accuracy is incredibly important. Especially when it comes to structural aluminium sections. This is where our inhouse CMM for Aluminium Extrusion Bending becomes a real benefit.
To ensure we meet this demand for quality, Alubend uses a number of modern CMM setups to check our parts throughout the various stages of fabrication.
Expanding our CMM
Due to an increase in production demand we have grown our CMM facilities with a newly acquired Romer 6-Axis arm.
6-AXIS: THE PORTABLE MEASURING ARM OPTIMISED FOR PROBING
The 6-Axis Hexagon Absolute Arm is specialised for high-accuracy touch measurement but also provides an option for entry into 3D scanning via compatibility with the HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner.
This arm adds to our already integrated CMM process that allows us to deliver high quality aluminium extrusion bending.
In addition to CMM we also use the following checking procedures at various stages of production:
- Flatness checks on granite tables
- Visual inspection under high brightness LED light to check for visual imperfections
- Go/no go jigs
- Full size printed plots
We are request that our customers supply templates, jigs or drawings as reference for bending. Additionally we offer in-house template and jig production based on drawings if required.
Our team are dedicated to supplying the best possible service to our customers through our full range of inhouse services. These include:
- Premium Aluminium Bending
- Coded Welding
- 3 and 5-Axis Machining
- Heat Treatment
- CMM Reporting
- and a number of Additional In House Services
