Closed Loop Manufacturing

High Precision Machine Tools with Integrated 3D Metrology Sensors

CLM-LSR – LASER-BASED MACHINING SYSTEM

Closed Loop Manufacturing (CLM) systems from EDM Intelligent Solutions pair some of the best high-precision laser ablation machine tools with fully integrated multisensor 3D metrology and tactile inspection technologies, all in one machine. This system brings self-guided production into reality by allowing the machine tool to continuously inspect and adjust its processes in order to meet the ever-shrinking tolerances on high precision workpieces in even the hardest materials. Closed-Loop Manufacturing offers a state-of-the-art, self-optimizing manufacturing intelligence and machining method for the production of precision components in a variety of overall size ranges.

  • Advanced 3-Axis CNC Machine Tool platform built for efficient 24/7 operation
  • Automated Form, Roughness and Dimensional Measurement during the machining process
  • Real-time Closed Loop feedback of measurement results to the machine control
  • Automated measurement based corrections to the machining Program
  • Full 3D laser ablation, engraving, surfacing and edge marking
  • 3D and 2D True Position Measurement based off of part datums
  • 3D Difference Measurement vs. CAD model or 3D point cloud
  • Automatic part datum alignment procedures to register part coordinate system
  • Automatic defect detection and text recognition
  • Set up measurements once and run them many times in production environments
  • Automatically measure specific dimensions and generate Pass/Fail Reports as PDF
  • Offline and Online program generation with automatic program generator
  • Intuitive user interface with Administrator, Engineer, and Operator modules
  • Integrated barcode scanner to automatically read part information from shop routers
  • Ready for automatic machine tending by an EDMIS Robotic Load Unload (RLU) System with FANUC or Mitsubishi Robot
