Hexagon Metrology 4.5.4 SF

Quality Insight at the Point of Production

The Hexagon Metrology 4.5.4 SF coordinate measuring machine excels in tough shop-floor conditions, drawing its inspiration from over fifteen years of shop floor machine production experience and thousands of units in the field worldwide. It is designed from the ground up to surpass the demanding requirements of shop floor users.

Enhancements to its design include optional programmable status lighting on the z-axis to signal the machines' progress throughout the measurement routine. An etched granite base defines the measurement envelope in the x and y axes.  Workspace LED lighting illuminates the parts being inspected in poorly lit environments. An optional monitor and keyboard arm (shown here) increase its mobility.

This rugged CMM is ideal for machine shops and manufacturing cells - featuring advanced thermal compensation, covered ways, built-in vibration resistance, and a shop-hardened design.

Its most notable feature is its flexibility. The Hexagon Metrology 4.5.4 SF uses standard 110/220 volt outlets with no need for shop air. Its compact footprint and roll-around stand, specifically designed to fit through a standard door, lets you easily move the SF series anywhere in the shop where precise dimensional inspection is required.

Economical to own and operate, with low up-front cost and simple maintenance, the Hexagon Metrology 4.5.4 SF could be the easiest CMM you've ever owned.
