SF 87 with CNC specialists

With the WENZEL SF 87, Klostermann fulfills several requirements for a CNC technology professional in the 5-axis sector: Precision in measurement, integration in production and a convincing price-performance ratio.

The new measuring machine from CNC-Technik Heil GmbH is right in the middle of production, because this is exactly what it was developed for: The SF 87 CNC coordinate measuring machine from WENZEL needs neither its own room nor a compressed air connection due to its intelligent machine concept. At the same time, it offers a high measuring volume and an efficient metrology. "Our customer was looking for a flexible solution that allows not only reliable measurement results but also their documentation," says Christian Klostermann. He assisted Thorsten Heil in the acquisition of his first own 3D measuring device.

The metrology in the immediate vicinity of production makes us more flexible and efficient. And nothing more than a power socket was needed to set up the machine - Torsten Heil, owner CNC-Technik Heil GmbH

Possible applications

The SF 87 is a 3D coordinate measuring machine for measuring small to medium-sized production parts. Its compact design is a solution especially in the machining and forming industry when precise measurement results are to be achieved. The implementation of Torsten Heil's request by WENZEL was not only obvious for this reason: The device offers the possibility to be retrofitted with additional sensor technology. For example, touch trigger probes or optical laser line sensors can be easily retrofitted.

As a result, the SF 87 offers diverse and future-proof application possibilities. This is an advantage for Torsten Heil: as a specialist for programming and milling in the 5-axis range, he exclusively produces prototypes for general mechanical engineering, including for aeronautical engineering and the automotive industry. These parts are manufactured according to individual requirements and have the highest precision standards.

He acquired the new measuring device to work more efficiently and flexibly and to be able to take measurements himself in his production so that the parts do not leave his factory untested. This saves time for coordination for him and his customers. With the integration into the production, Christian Klostermann provided the decisive argument for the CMM SF 87. With the large measuring volume of 800 x 700 x 700 mm with a small footprint, the device is ideal for the requirements in the Remscheid-based company.
