Sheffield D-28 Discovery III Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)

This Sheffield CMM allows shop-floor inspection, right at the point of production, and has available scanning and multisensor capability, including the CMM-V video probe, Leitz LSP-X1 analog scanning probe, and ScanShark laser line scanning probe.



In place of air bearings, the Sheffield Discovery III uses hardened machine tool re-circulating ball bearings running at just a fraction of their rated load.

This contributes to long life and lower maintenance costs in some of the harshest shop environments imaginable. And with no need for air and a roll-around stand, Discovery III provides the ultimate in flexibility when it comes to shopfloor layout
