"Only three of our suppliers were capable of delivering measuring machines that meet our needs,” describes Kohlmeyer. The key for Henschel in selecting Carl Zeiss was the active probe on the ACCURA, which automatically corrects the distance to the part during a measurement.
Henschel has been working with the ACCURA II since June 2010. It features a particularly long stylus (850 mm) and is also capable of precisely measuring the interiors of the very large housing parts. Henschel uses it to check the axis spacing, bearing boreholes and parallelism.
