During loading, each coordinate measuring machine is at a standstill. However, this unproductive time can be prevented with pallets. Pallets allows workpieces to be clamped outside the measuring device and in advance of the measurement. Within a few seconds, the loaded pallets can then be aligned on the measuring device - without being measured again.
Additional time saves another calibration pallet. A fixed reference sphere holder with a sphere and, if required, also a reference ring and glass standard are provided on a pallet of this kind. To carry out the calibration, the user simply places the pallet on the machine and starts the process on the measuring machine.
