Product Information


ZEISS MICURA Bridge-Type CMM Maximum Precision for Small Parts. ZEISS MICURA sets the standard in the compact class. Despite its small size, ZEISS MICURA makes no compromises when it comes to accuracy. ZEISS MICURA comes standard with the VAST XT gold scanning sensor from ZEISS and navigator technology. Small and precise
ZEISS MICURA is the solution for new demands in industrial production where parts are becoming increasingly compact and accuracy requirements are rising. Equipped with the VAST XT gold high-end sensor from ZEISS and navigator technology, ZEISS MICURA offers active scanning with measuring accuracy of less than one micrometer. ZEISS MICURA flexes its muscles, in particular, with small, complex parts featuring narrow tolerances such as those used in optics and electronics. Despite its compact size, this system provides a measuring volume of 500 x 500 x 500 millimeters – and therefore considerably more than comparable instruments.

Precise high-speed scanning
The VAST XT gold sensor from ZEISS enables high-speed scanning featuring up to 200 measuring points per second. As a result, form and location parameters such as roundness and flatness can be precisely captured, in addition to geometric features, in a short time. The sensor can be equipped with extremely small stylus tips. The smallest stylus has a diameter of just 0.3 millimeters.

Automatic measuring speed with VAST navigator from ZEISS
ZEISS MICURA comes standard with VAST navigator technology. It automatically configures the optimal measuring speed with guaranteed accuracy, thus considerably reducing the measuring time. ZEISS MICURA moves somewhat slower in areas that demand more precision. It moves faster with simple contours or when less accuracy is needed. navigator technology also saves time through tangential approach and scanning, helix scanning and fast dynamic stylus calibration.

Computer-Aided Accuracy (CAA)
Measuring errors due to dynamically induced inertia effects are automatically compensated for.

Operation and ergonomics
ZEISS MICURA comes with a redesigned control panel. One display and two joysticks enable operators to control and program the machine independently of the computer. The system is easy to operate and makes it possible to start measuring even without in-depth experience with measuring machines. The ledge on the front of the granite table allows the control panel and tools to be stored outside the measuring range.

Well thought-out design
Ceramic guideways and a large bearing base minimize susceptibility to external influences
ZEISS air bearings on four sides guarantee stability and precision
ZEISS MICURA also comes with a temperature sensor for the workpiece
The probing force of the sensor is actively regulated and is very low - ideal for sensitive materials
Controller technology, software, sensors and additional components are made by ZEISS and are finely tuned to each other

Sample applications
Converters and adjusting units with highly accurate leads and bearings
Pistons and shafts with the tightest tolerances
Artificial hips
Gear wheels
Optical lens elements
