Impact CMM

Impact CMMThe Impact range sets the benchmark for a high performance CMM at affordable pricing. In light with the IMS latest technologies, Impact uses lightweight yet stiff carbon fibre for the construction of the Z column along with Aluminium Alloy for the bridge section. Both materials offer an excellent stiffness to weight ration providing a better dynamic performance for the machine.

The Impact features high accuracy, class leading rapid CNC measuring cycles with acceleration rates of 2500mm/sec2 to reach 860mm/sec 3D traverse speeds and the built-in endurance to withstand the rigors of the shop floor. Incorporating IMS’ unique RapidScan™ technology, it can acquire 8 points per second using a typical touch trigger probe.
