Building on the enormous success of the Horizon 800, the Horizon 1000 uses the same frictionless linear motors but boasts a greater X-Y-Z axis movement. The complete architecture of the Horizon 1000 has been refined to maximize the utilization of components now employed in the Horizon 800, all the while enhancing the stiffness-to-weight ratio throughout the bridge assembly. Above all, The stiffness-to-weight ratio has been improved by the carriage assembly’s size and weight reduction without sacrificing metrology performance; the Z-axis motor’s power has been increased to maximise its performance; and the left-side air bearing assembly’s unique extruded profile keeps weight to a minimum while maintaining stiffness. The Y-axis rail is 200mm taller to allow for the same right-side linear drive system to be common and improve rigidity.

With its rapid silent, and smooth motion, the Horizon 1000 is a remarkable coordinate measuring device that is perfect for contact scanning. Additionally, it has a standard for first-term accuracy of less than two microns. Because they don’t have any worn parts and are non-contact, linear motors are the ideal option for CMM drives because they increase reliability and require less maintenance.
