ZEISS PRISMO Family

ZEISS PRISMO family

When precision matters most

Discover the ZEISS PRISMO family

Discover a new era of precision. ZEISS PRISMO has been one of the most precise CMMs on the market for over 30 years and achieves reliable and reproducible results with maximum accuracy. The coordinate measuring machines in the ZEISS PRISMO family offer the highest measuring speeds of all ZEISS CMMs and are suitable for use in a wide variety of environments. The ZEISS PRISMO family consists of four models. Their high quality and measuring accuracy increase the efficiency of your process. If you don’t want to compromise on precision when it comes to quality assurance, you’re in safe hands with the ZEISS PRISMO family. Because the rule here is: accuracy plus safety ensures productivity.

ZEISS PRISMO

ZEISS PRISMO

The all-rounder

With a length measurement error from 0.9 + L/350 µm, ZEISS PRISMO is the flagship among ZEISS CMMs and offers maximum productivity and outstanding performance.

ZEISS PRISMO verity

ZEISS PRISMO verity

The new standard

ZEISS PRISMO verity delivers results with a length measurement error from just 0.7 + L/400 µm and impresses with improved form measurement values.

ZEISS PRISMO ultra

ZEISS PRISMO ultra

Maximum precision in the PRISMO family

With a length measurement error of 0.5 + L/500 µm, ZEISS PRISMO ultra improves precision even further and is therefore particularly suitable for research and calibration tasks, as well as reference laboratories.

ZEISS PRISMO fortis

ZEISS PRISMO fortis

Precision in production environments

ZEISS PRISMO fortis is designed for use in production environments and offers maximum precision even at temperatures of up to 40°C.

ZEISS PRISMO sets new standards

More than just a facelift: The flagship family of coordinate measuring machines from ZEISS has been completely overhauled. With numerous upgrades, safety, economic and environmental efficiency, flexibility, ergonomics and, last but not least, productivity have reached a whole new level.

Safety laser scanner and DGUV certification

Increased safety

Safety laser scanner and DGUV certification

ZEISS PRISMO has safety laser scanners that not only fully detect every corner but also trigger an automatic speed reduction as soon as they detect movement or hazards in the safety zone.

In addition, every ZEISS PRISMO coordinate measuring machine is officially certified by the internationally recognized German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV). This voluntary certification is unique among CMM providers. Additional innovations have been introduced to comply with DGUV guidelines, such as the adjustable side panels. By reducing the distance between the moving parts to less than 4 mm, the crushing hazard is reduced.

Speed and optional ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis

Maximum productivity

Speed and optional ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis

The new safety laser scanners are equipped with a function for automatic speed reduction and thus enable significantly faster measurement than before – while reliably maintaining high safety standards.

The speed is also increased by the ZVRA option for defining the rotary table axis. Axis definition on a rotary table no longer takes 60 seconds, but only 15 seconds – thanks to continuous measurement using the special ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis (ZVRA) option.

Control panel holder, switch arrangement and slim design

Improved ergonomics

Control panel holder, switch arrangement and slim design

Ergonomics have also been optimized as part of the new ZEISS PRISMO family. The new control panel holder allows the control panel to be conveniently stored when not in use.

For even easier operation and monitoring, most of the switches are no longer located on the controller, but directly on the control panel.

The new cover at the front significantly reduces the distance between the operator and the measuring volume compared to the previous model – which can protect employees, especially when loading heavy workpieces.

Free choice of sensor and extended size selection

Increased flexibility

Free choice of sensor and extended size selection

With the new ZEISS C99m controller, ZEISS PRISMO now supports both ZEISS ROTOS (roughness sensor) and ZEISS LineScan (optical sensor), thus increasing operational flexibility.

The range of sizes has also been extended. The usual ZEISS PRISMO sizes from 7/9/5 to 16/42/10 are still available. The standard version now also comes in three new sizes: 16/24/14, 16/30/14 and 16/42/14.

ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications

ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications

Special option for ZEISS PRISMO 7/12/7 fortis

The essential quality inspection of engine components such as turbine blades and blisks is subject to strict quality assurance requirements. It accounts for 20% of total production costs and 25% of total production time, making it extremely costly and time-consuming. Speeding up the measurement process without compromising on measuring accuracy means significant potential savings for the entire industry. The solution is called ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications.

The ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications available for ZEISS PRISMO 7/12/7 fortis offers the two options ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis (ZVRA) and ZEISS VAST Rotary Table (ZVR) as well as a special package for application support if required. ZVRA ensures even greater accuracy thanks to the fast definition of the rotary table axis. ZVR speeds up the movement of the rotary table and thus the measurement process and reliable measurement results.

ZEISS TS

ZEISS TS

The new tailstock for the ZEISS PRISMO family

The ZEISS tailstock enables wave-shaped measuring objects to be clamped between tips. For example, gear shafts, worm shafts, crankshafts, camshafts and rotors can be clamped without deformation and measured in the best possible way. Thanks to this optimum accessibility, complete measurements can be carried out in a single clamping operation. The ZEISS TS features an interchangeable interface that allows the tailstock to be quickly set up in the measuring volume if required. In combination with the high-precision ZEISS RT-AB-600 rotary table with air bearings, a universal coordinate measuring machine can be quickly and flexibly upgraded to a special shaft measuring machine. The ZEISS TS is available in two Z-sizes as TS-7 and TS-10 variants and is designed to match selected variants of the ZEISS PRISMO family.

ZEISS CALYPSO Software

ZEISS CALYPSO Software

Software for dimensional measurement technology

ZEISS CALYPSO measures standard geometries simply, quickly and reliably. Program inspection plans easily by clicking on the desired features. Travel paths are generated automatically and optimally by the software. Thanks to numerous optional extensions, ZEISS CALYPSO also offers the right tools for special requirements, for example with ZEISS CALYPSO VAST probing and ZEISS CALYPSO pallet optimizer. These functions allow measurements to be carried out up to 25% faster.

More sustainability in your measurement processes with ZEISS PRISMO

At the heart of every machine use is energy consumption, which plays a key role in the active utilization phase and has a significant impact on the environmental balance. Thanks to its energy-saving functions and a newly developed, energy-efficient control system, ZEISS PRISMO is a prime example of efficient resource consumption in the field of industrial measurement technology. The ZEISS PRISMO family stands for durability and sets new standards in terms of precision, speed and sustainability.

The new ZEISS PRISMO family is equipped with the new C99m control unit, which reduces power consumption by 64% compared to previous models.
More sustainability in your measurement processes with ZEISS PRISMO
With the ZEISS PowerSaver feature, the machine is disconnected from the power supply when not in use and power consumption is reduced to zero during downtimes. Users can define the activation of the ZEISS PowerSaver at specific times.
More sustainability in your measurement processes with ZEISS PRISMO
ZEISS AirSaver ensures further savings and automatically switches off the compressed air after a preset time.
