The new MICURA coordinate measuring machine from Carl Zeiss meets user demands for smaller coordinate measuring machines that are as accurate as their larger relatives. It is priced lower than the company’s larger machines but has a measuring range of 500 x 500 x 500 millimeters, and uses a VAST XT Gold probe—able to continually scan surfaces at a speed of 200 measured points per second. Micura also features ceramic guideways, air bearings on four sides and a large bearing base for all moving parts.
