The Zeiss Contura HTG (High Temperature Gradient) measures material surface finish, performing point-by-point recognition of a workpiece by probing its configurative surface. The Calypso visual metrology software allows the user to select tolerances from the drawing or CAD model. It helps the user select the necessary references and then generates measuring plans.
The Zeiss Contura is a bridge-type coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with a measuring range of 700x1000x600mm. It employs direct contact scanning technology to measure geometric features with an accuracy of ± 2µ (18-26°C; 40-60% relative humidity). It is well-suited for classic quality assurance and reverse engineering applications. The HTG (High Temperature Gradient) version provides the same accuracy for a wider range.
