Bruker Alicona InfiniteFocus G6 system, the first in Australia

Major Victorian University purchases Bruker Alicona InfiniteFocus G6 system

Bruker Alicona InfiniteFocus G6 system, the first in Australia, has been purchased by a major Victorian university for their new material sciences laboratory adding to the existing Alicona capacity of earlier generation Alicona G4 and G5 systems.

The Bruker Alicona InfiniteFocus G6 system was first introduced to the market at the 2022 Control Show in Germany, and since then over 100 systems have been sold worldwide. The InfiniteFocs G6 system represents a step change in technology over the previous G5 model that it replaces in speed of measurement, increased z-height operation, and the introduction of the new MetMax metrology software from Alicona.

MetMax is a new approach to measurement software from Alicona, and as well as providing full GD&T capabilities, also now can create measurement plans for automatic measurement routines.

InfiniteFocusG6 is an accurate, fast, and universal optical 3D measuring instrument for tolerances in the µm and sub-µm range. Components are measured area-based and with high resolution independent of size, material, geometry, weight, and surface finish. Several proven and new features combine the functionalities of a roughness measuring system (Ra, Rq, Rz/Sa, Sq, Sz) with the characteristics of a coordinate measuring machine.

The brand new InfiniteFocusG6 stands for:

    • UNRIVALED MEASUREMENT PERFORMANCE –

    • GROUNDBREAKING USER EXPERIENCE –

    • FUTURE-PROOF TECHNOLOGIES –

    • SMART DESIGN –

Several proven and new features combine the functionalities of a roughness measuring system with the characteristics of a coordinate measuring machine:

5-axis metrology

Tbruker-alicona-infinitefocus-g6The expansion from 3 to 5 axes allows measurements of geometries that are otherwise difficult or impossible to access. High-precision tilting and rotating axes enable the measurement of GD&T and roughness parameters on the entire measured object.

SmartFlash and Real3D

The integrated SmartFlash technology ensures high-resolution measurement of smooth, reflective, and highly polished surfaces. Real3D turns individual measurements into a complete 360° data set.

MetMax Software

Users specify measurements already in the CAD model of a component. A Digital Twin combined with a virtual measurement simulation enables the safe operation of the measuring instrument.

Vertical Focus Probing

The latest technology enables the optical, lateral probing of components. Users measure holes and vertical flanks (>90°).

Roundness measurement capability for oil and gas seal producer

Roundness measurement capability for oil and gas seal producer

Project details

A leading producer of seals for the oil and gas sector turned to Met Optix and Taylor Hobson for new roundness measuring capabilities for their new advanced seal division in Melbourne. The latest Talyrond roundness measurement system from Taylor Hobson was chosen for the application, based on the customer’s overseas experience.

The system was installed and commissioned in November 2022, by a Taylor Hobson service engineer from Singapore. Full onsite training and support services were provided to the customer.

Specifications

  • Taylor Hobson Talyrond TR565 PRO (H)
  • 200 mm motorized radial arm
  • 300 mm column
  • Talymin 6 gauge, 2 mm range
  • Metrology 4.0 software
New Roundness Capability for South Australian Calibration Lab

New Roundness Capability for South Australian Calibration Lab

One of our key customers – Australian Metrology and Calibration (AMC) in Adelaide, recently installed two new systems supplied by Met Optix – a Taylor Hobson Talyrond TR130/131 Roundness Measuring System and a Gauge Calibration and Length Measuring System from Microrep in Italy.

This was to equip their growing capabilities and prepare their business for future opportunities in the defence sector in South Australia. AMC’s chief metrologist, Jon Latham, stated, we wanted to replace some of our older equipment with the latest technologies in terms of roundness measurement and gauge calibration, and Met Optix had the right products and skilled personnel to help us with our upgrade journey.’
‘These systems, along with an earlier purchase of a large format Starrett vision system, also from Met Optix, give us the confidence to tackle any project, large or small’, reports Latham.
