Helmel Phoenix


The Phoenix line of CMMs offers two popular sizes to fit your quality inspection needs.

Building on decades of experience with shop floor Coordinate Measuring Machines, Helmel now offers the Phoenix... a heavy-duty, DCC version of its popular Checkmaster bench-top manual CMMs. The Phoenix is made for harsh environments, with well-placed covers that prevent temperature shock. Its steel measuring scales on metal structures assure uniform expansion.

The Phoenix CMM incorporates all the time-proven features of its "big brother", the Microstar: hardened precision-ground ways, dual beam bridge with reliable V-and-Flat bearing arrangement and intrinsic accuracy. The latter is very important to reliably retain accuracy over time and reduce calibration cost. The Phoenix comes equipped with a full granite base and ergonomic stand.

The motorized system is outfitted with the powerful PMAC controller, the latest computer system and our proprietary GEOMET software, the best CMM package on the market.

An optional Renishaw UCC2 Controller can be ordered to enhance capabilities in support of the PH20 Probe with "head-tap" mode or SP25 continuous scanning.
