  • Rotary Table....Retrofit?

    Our purchasing manager just called me and asked what it would take to put a rotary table into our new Global Advantage 12-22-10. I told him, "A miracle." Has anyone ever heard of retrofitting a rotary table into a CMM?

      If you just want to fit a rotary table onto the cmm it isn't a big issue. We have one on a 15-30-10 chameleon. It talks to quindos fine but wont talk to pcdmis.
      Getting pcdmis to talk to it via the controller can be a major issue.
      You may need a new controller (very expensive) and a rotary table that the software recognizes.
      I would suggest talking to hexagon as this is not a simple upgrade.

      ps: if its a new machine why didnt they order it with a rotary table??? Who missed that one!!

        On a Global, you have to change the controller (B3CLC can't command 4 axes). I think you have to install a B3CS (I'm not sure about the name). You have to configure the dongle, I think that you have to pay it too. You also have to buy a rotary table...
        Pwhitsa is right, who missed that ????
