MCV-3500

Linear, Squareness, and Straightness Calibration

OPTODYNE's MCV-3500 Linear, Straightness and Squareness Calibration System calibrates CNC machine tools, CMMs (Coordinate Measuring Machines), and other precision measurement machines and stages. The MCV- 3500's Quad-detector and optical square also allow for the precision measurement of squareness and straightness.
OPTODYNE's machine calibration lasers are based on our proprietary and patented Laser Doppler Displacement Meter (LDDM ) technology. The total system is compact, providing easy, convenient storage and transport. Easy setup procedures reduce overall machine calibration time, especially where multiple axes are involved. Calibrated and traceable to NIST. The Optodyne laser maintains high accuracy as well as low cost.
OPTODYNE's proprietary Windows or DOC software is designed to collect and analyze data in accordance with a variety of industry standards. The software, running on a laptop or notebook computer, collects, analyzes, records and presents the data in a tabular or graphical form.
