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:
TThe 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.
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°).
