  • Less PC DMIS more CMM related

    Morning Guys,

    Nothing i say had drilled into the operators the importance of not putting stuff on the air bearing track and stuff is constantly left or put on the line - how important actually is this? am I looking at an immanent broken machine?

    Thanks in advance

    I was told that a defect on the track create a three times defect on the geometry (like a stripe) : the air goes in the stripe and the air bearing goes down.
    An easy way to protect the track is to glue along the track a car door protection.

      Whilst it's not ideal it depends on what it is (it it clean / covered in oil and swarf).

      Could you get some yellow and black tape and stick it to the bed just inside where the leg runs as a visual warning? Failing that you could even get something that is raised 1/4 inch so if they put anything there it will wobble. They'll be more likely to lay the part on a flat surface.

        I find this usually works.

          It's certainly an option!

        My Leitz came with a rubber edging along the air bearing surface.. could use something like this

            Maybe...make a rail system that goes on the side of the machine that would physically prevent someone from putting parts there?

            You could also maybe paint the area you don't want them putting parts the color red. rail system is the way to go, IMO

            Benedictj1's rail system is the way to go, IMO

              Call your Hexagon Service Rep. They should have this rubber edging I have on my machine. "Extruded D shaped bumper material"

                You are potentially looking at a warped machine due to high-speed impact with something on the way surface. Then you are looking at getting the machine rebuilt.

                      One of our quality engineers put his travel mug on our global 2 days in a row. I asked him not to each day.
                      Day three I let the machine launch it on the floor, problem solved!

                        Report it to your safety people for placing a hot hazardous liquid on a surface where its highly likely that it could easily get launched thus potentially injuring you and anyone else in the lab.

                        funnily enough a QA engineer here is one of the main culprits... You'd have thought they would be the most aware

                        IME, the QA people who worked up from the floor are solid.
