ActiCM has unveiled Actirise, its latest range of high-performance and user-friendly 3D coordinate measurement machines (CMM) based on innovative optical technology.

Plate 3 Actiris™ is the latest range of high-performance 3D CMMs from ActiCM
Actirise relies on a combination of advanced photogrammetry (the use of photography for surveying purposes) and powerful digital image processing. This unique combination provides a high-level of accuracy in the results obtained, whilst increasing the reliability and rapidity of controls performed on parts, organs or complex assemblies, both on and off the production line. Besides, Actirise offers the user, complete freedom of movement and allows for both automatic and manual alignment set-up. Additional features such as easy installation and automatic calibration complete the exceptional performance levels of this 3D measurement device.
Actirise is designed on an entirely open platform. It is standardly supplied with the PowerInspecte software package, but it can also be interfaced with most industrial measurement software packages, which is an added advantage. Actirise can have a wide range of applications across the whole manufacturing spectrum, including metallurgy and metal processing, machine tool production, automotive and the transport equipment production sector.
