TORO – The cost-effective Runway type horizontal arm CMM
The TORO is an innovative line of automatic horizontal arm measuring machines for dimensional inspection of sheet metal components and large size parts. TORO features an extraordinary price/performance ratio and is available in the Runway structure with the main guideway fixed to the floor.
The measuring machines of the TORO series can be employed as metrology stations in the development and engineering departments for supporting industrial design of complex contoured shapes, as well as flexible gages for process control in a shop environment.
The TORO series is available in the Runway type architecture. That means that the main guideway is floor-mounted. It is extremely modular and easy to configure, thus, combining flexibility and programmability that are typical of CMMs, with the speed and intuitive use of traditional measuring gages.
The open structure of the horizontal arm architecture guarantees optimum access to the work area with the advantage of simplifying part loading and unloading. It proves extremely practical on measuring models, car bodies and castings where the need to reach inner details requires excellent ease of access horizontally.
- Machine axes move on stiff ball bearing pads that slide on a pair of ground, induction-hardened precision guideways, thus, ensuring maximum resistance and functional dependability in industrial environments.
- The mobile carriage counterbalance system takes advantage of an innovative backlash-free, safe device located inside the Z machine ram.
- The Z axis guideways are protected by a stiff bellow cover from contaminants in the environment.
- The guideways on the X beam in protected position and the exclusive design of the mobile carriage make the traditional walkable covers or bellow covers for the upper surface of the main beam unnecessary.
