For more than 100 years, the Brown and Sharpe company has been the world's leading producer of coordinate measuring machines. Today, Hexagon Metrology owns the company, but the quality, accuracy and precision of these devices has not changed. Many of the key leaders at Brown & Sharpe Global remain at the company to ensure that all of the machines make use of modern technology. Here are some of the top models of replacement parts in the Brown & Sharpe inventory.
The SMP CPU boards are designed to power the SMP400 Brown & Sharpe units. These Brown & Sharpe TESA devices include a six-month warranty. The board is designed to be a direct replacement for DCC boards that have worn out after many years of use.
Proper calibration of tools is critical to accurate coordinate measurement. The Brown & Sharpe datum sphere calibration standard is mounted onto a pedestal for ease of use and storage.
If your coordinate measuring machine needs a new stylus, the Brown & Sharpe stylus kit is the right choice. This kit includes four lengths of extension heads. Made of aluminum, they resist rust and corrosion. They work with two-wire touch trigger probes and add an additional 50 millimeters of length to the probe. The kit includes a labeled storage box.
The probe kit includes low-force and medium-force stylus tools. The tools are packed in a padded box for protection, ease of transportation and convenience when not in use. The two-piece design and magnetic coupling makes these probes easy to use. The probes are compatible with coordinating accessories, such as the charging rack.
Accuracy of Brown and Sharpe CMM Parts
The Brown and Sharpe CMM parts are highly accurate in the X, Y and Z planes. All of the parts work with modern CMM machines. They're designed to be exact fits and function as original equipment manufacturer replacement parts. When paired with laser scanning CMM machines, these replacement parts offer accuracy within plus or minus 0.000005 on sphericity. These replacement parts are available for portable and bridge CMM units.
Applications of Brown and Sharpe CMM Parts
Brown and Sharpe parts are most frequently used on micrometer CMM machines. These machines are specifically designed to measure areas of interest on small items, such as electronic devices, furniture, weapons, tools and aerospace products. They're also used in automobile and other manufacturing. As manufacturing increasingly relies on technology, the availability of durable and exact-fit CMM parts will be critical to the accuracy and precision of the finished products.
