Introducing Climax LM6200 & LM5200

Linear Milling also available in the gantry mode. This configuration allows the mills to fit many applications and areas. Many different sized rams are available for each machine.

Metrology How it can work for you!

Laser alignment, measuring flatness of surfaces, straightness of journals, bore accuracy, and many more applications.

FARO® Laser Tracker

We employ the latest technology in large volume measurement and alignment by using an accurate coordinate-measuring machine called FARO® Laser Tracker. This shows the ''as found" and "as left" measurements of a flange inside of a titanium plant. When it's critical for exact measurements, you can rely on our work. 

FARO® Laser Tracker

Critical measurements for an exact fit. This is a mounting plate inside of a cement plant in Baltimore, MD. Using the FARO Laser Tracker and the Climax LM6200, the mounting plate was measured and machined to tolerance of +.003 to -.003. 

FARO® Laser Tracker with Tracker Arm

Bower RTG RG275 Foundation Drill. Measuring the features, align to datums, along with GD&T controls checking for parallelism, cylindricity, and perpendicularity. This drill was damaged on a job site and needed to be checked for repair. Reports of the as-found condition starting with the main house of the drill rig out through the boom control links and triangular transition. Also reported on the straightness of the connecting cylinders and main boom.

FARO® Laser Tracker

Shown here is a pump housing and cam shaft used in the gas well drilling industry. The bores in the housing were suspected of being out of align, however using the laser tracker and probe arm we found that it was the cam shaft the was out of alignment. Modern technology to find the problem, superior machining techniques to fix the problem.

FARO® Laser Tracker

Lake Lynn Hydro Generation Plant. The #3 turbine to generator shaft and bearings were measured to figure out a fix. Here are some pictures and reports showing the problems. The fix is on the way. 

FARO® Laser Tracker

Horizonal milling machine at Crile Industrial. Measurement and alignment work. 1st Report, preliminary measurement taking a dynamic XZ plane reading. 2nd Report shows the as-found condition of the bed ways. 3rd Report shows the flatness of the bed ways and the perpendicularity to earth ground level along with the dynamic reading of the X travel in the as-left condition.

FARO® Laser Tracker

Veneer manufacturing in Fairfield Ohio. The bearing housings were worn and out of alignment on the veneer cutter. Using the FARO laser tracker and FARO track arm to check the alignment between the head stock and tail stock. The boring equipment was set in place, successfully aligned, and machined to SKF bearing specification.
