MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW Modern Machine Shop 149 Tool Cart Belt Sander for MRO Applications The Kalamazoo Industries model 1SM abrasive belt sander is well-suited for use on the tool cart in MRO applications. Instead of having to walk back to the tool crib to finish a spacer, shim or other small replace- ment part, all the work can be done on site. The unit has a 1" × 42" abrasive belt and comes standard with a 1 / 3 -hp motor providing 1,800 sfpm. It also has a 4" drive wheel and a removable platen and work table. | Kalamazoo Industries Inc. 800-592-2050 | Compact Laser Scanner Designed for Small Parts Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has launched the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960-SR laser tracker. Only available as part of a bundle offer with one of Hexagon's leading laser scanner products, the scanner is designed for applications with smaller measurement volume requirements that still demand speed and accuracy. Powered by AIFM and Mini Variozoom optical tech- nology, the system is said to deliver high-end function- ality, remaining fully compatible with Hexagon's probing and scanning accessories such as the Leica T-Probe, Leica Absolute Scanner LAS and the Leica T-Scan 5 as well as standard reflectors. The system is optimized to operate over a measuring volume as large as 10 m in diameter for 6DoF measurement, corresponding to a measuring volume of approximately 400 m³. | Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence 800-343-7933 |
