Hexagon released DELTA OPERA, the large volume CMM that simplifies loading of very large parts in industrial environments. DELTA OPERA’s unique open structure enables users to load workpieces from three sides of the CMM, making part loading quicker, more flexible, and protecting workpieces by avoiding collisions with the CMM structure.
Ideal for large aerospace and milling applications, DELTA OPERA allows for loading from the front, rear, and one side of the measuring volume. DELTA OPERA can also offer a smaller factory footprint than traditional gantry machines, reducing temperature control costs.
“For manufacturers inspecting very large workpieces, loading parts can be challenging and time-consuming,” says Marco Mussino, Product Manager and Project Management Leader, Manufacturing Intelligence, Hexagon. “With the innovative DELTA OPERA, part loading is made easier, driving more efficient inspection. With its open structure and outstanding performance, DELTA OPERA is the most significant evolution in large-volume CMMs for many years.”
As well as delivering high performance, DELTA OPERA comes with a range of usability enhancements, including status and speed lighting indicators, and Hexagon’s seamless probe head swapping system Manual Application Changer (MAC).
