LK Metrology | ALTERA ScanTek

The sole 5 axis CMM oriented to Speed, Accuracy and Flexibility.”

With advanced probe and controller technology, LK Metrology has launched its ALTERA SCANtek 5-axis CMM which combines 3-axis CMM motion with an articulating head that moves in 2-axis as it measures.

The resulting 5-axis motion delivers unprecedented measuring speed, accuracy and flexibility, whilst avoiding the compromises inherent to conventional CMM probing techniques.

Infinite head positioning further aids access to difficult to measure features and increases the effective measuring volume of the CMM by minimising the space required for head orientations.

Unique accuracy guarantee

LK Metrology is the only manufacturer to guarantee the accuracy of its CMMs for 10 years.

LK Metrology’s range of premium quality ALTERA CMMs meet the varying needs of manufacturers, both today and in the future.

The superior ceramic design, with near perfect stiffness-to- weight ratio and greater resistance to temperature shifts, provides consistent performance across all manufacturing environments.

Advanced multi-sensor ready technology optimizes CMM throughput and provides the opportunity to broaden the application scope to new materials and components as needs change, without additional wiring or controllers.

Innovative work-flows and intuitive software features facilitate complex inspection tasks and boost productivity.

Ultra fast scanning

SCANtek technology allows the stylus to follow a continuous path around complex components without leaving the surface.

Non-contact inspection

Measure small and delicate features unsuitable for tactile measurement.

  • Two vision modules provide inspection capability for different applications.
  • Thousands of features measured in a fraction of the time taken using tactile methods.
  • Accurate data correlation between tactile and non-contact measurements..

Surface finish analysis

Combine surface finish analysis with other CMM measurements in a single operation.

  • Integral motorised C-axis provides access to features at all orientations around the part.
  • Output of RA, RMS and raw data for detailed surface finish / surface roughness reporting
  • Variety of tip arrangements and knuckle joints to suit any application, including bores as small as 5mm (0.2 inch) in diameter..

Multi sensor inspection

High performance scanning, non-contact inspection and surface finish analysis on a single CMM.

Change rack

The MRS2 modular rack system is a versatile auto change and storage system for all REVO©-2 sensors, probes and styli.

DMIS protocol

MODUS™ fully supports the industry standard DMIS (Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard) programming language for a futureproof investment in CMM programs.

Enduring accuracy

Ultra-stable ceramic bridge and spindle guideway with high resolution 0.05 μm optical scales for volumetric accuracies from 1.5 μm + L/375.

Precise motion

Granite dove-tail table guideway with unique single orifice grooved pre-loaded air bearings for precise motion control at high speeds, Velocity up to 833 mm/s.


Self-levelling vibration isolation for optimum performance in areas subject to high levels of low frequency vibration.
