ZEISS PRISMO Family

When Precision Matters the Most

Success Through Precision –

in Every Environment.

As one of the most precise CMMs on the market for over 30 years, ZEISS PRISMO reliably and reproducibly achieves maximum accuracy. Boasting the fastest measuring speeds of any ZEISS CMM, it is ready for deployment in a range of different environments – with the ZEISS PRISMO fortis handling even the toughest conditions in inline settings at temperatures of up to 40°C.

The Next Generation of Innovation

A trusted name, all-new features

More than just a facelift: This flagship family of CMMs from ZEISS has undergone a thorough overhaul. Numerous upgrades are combined to boost safety, sustainability, flexibility, ergonimics and of course productivitiy on a new level.

New C99m Controller

The ZEISS C99m controller has a sleek and simplified design that slashes power consumption by 64% compared to its predecessor.

DGUV Certification

Every ZEISS PRISMO is officially certified by the internationally renowned German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) association.
This voluntary certification is unique among CMM manufacturers.

ZEISS PowerSaver

This disconnects ZEISS PRISMO from the power supply when not in operation, reducing consumption to zero during downtime. It also features extensive options for automatic activation.

Safety Laser Scanners

Not only do these scanners provide total coverage of every corner, they also trigger an automatic speed reduction upon detecting the presence of persons and objects in the safety area.

Adjustable Covers

Among the new additions introduced to ensure DGUV compliance are the adjustable side covers, which combat the risk of crushing by reducing the gap between moving parts to under 4 mm.

ZEISS AirSaver

The ZEISS AirSaver feature automatically switches off the compressed air after a preconfigured period.

Control Panel Holder

This significantly reduces the distance between the operator and the measuring area, offering easier manual loading of heavy parts and more convenient storage of the control panel when not in use.

Free Choice of Sensor

Thanks to the new ZEISS C99m controller, ZEISS PRISMO is now able to handle both ZEISS ROTOS (roughness sensor) and ZEISS LineScan (optical sensor) for greater operational flexibility.

ZEISS PRISMO

The all-rounder

Featuring a measurement accuracy of 0.9 + 0.9 + L/350 μm, ZEISS PRISMO is the flagship ZEISS CMM and synonymous with precision measurement. Computer-Aided Accuracy (CAA) corrects all dynamic influences on the machine to optimize precision even during high-speed scanning. Equipped as standard with the ZEISS VAST performance package, the ZEISS multi application sensor system (ZEISS mass technology), and the new ZEISS C99m controller, ZEISS PRISMO delivers maximum productivity and outstanding performance.

ZEISS PRISMO fortis

Close to production

Thanks to optimized air bearing integration, floating ZERODUR® scales, and thermal bending corrections, ZEISS PRISMO fortis guarantees maximum precision at temperatures up to 40°C. For this reason, ZEISS PRISMO fortis can be deployed in a production area without any additional investment in a temperature-controlled measuring enclosure. It is also uniquely compatible with the ZEISS VAST Rotary Table (ZVR) option, which enables faster rotary table movement for faster measurement times.

 

ZEISS PRISMO verity

The new standard

ZEISS PRISMO verity delivers results with an accuracy of 0.7 + L/400 μm through the use of ZERODUR® scales and advanced CAA correction. As it meets the VDI/VDE 2627 requirements for class 3 measuring rooms, all necessary measurements can be conducted in an air-conditioned chamber set to 19-22°C. With improved form measurement values, ZEISS PRISMO verity is the best machine in its class.

 

ZEISS PRISMO ultra

Highest precision

With a length measurement accuracy of 0.5 + L/500 μm, ZEISS PRISMO ultra further increases the precision of ZEISS PRISMO. This is achieved with more precise scales, a modified air bearing connection, additional CAA corrections, air damping, and stricter matching of all machine parts. ZEISS PRISMO ultra is ideal for tasks where maximum precision is required, such as in research, development, quality assurance, and the calibration of gauges or test specimens.

ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications

Quality inspection of engine components like blades and blisks is vital. Yet it is also expensive and time-consuming, accounting for 20% of the total production cost and 25% of the total production time. Any means of speeding up the measurement process without compromising on accuracy promises significant savings for the sector at large – which is where ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications comes in.

Available for ZEISS PRISMO 7/12/7 fortis, ZEISS CMM Acceleration Mode for Aerospace Applications comprises a pair of options known as ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis (ZVRA) and ZEISS VAST Rotary Table (ZVR) as well as a dedicated application support package if required. ZVRA boosts accuracy by providing swift definition of the axis of the rotary table, while ZVR promotes faster movement of the rotary table and thus faster measurement.

ZEISS TS

The new tailstock for the ZEISS PRISMO Family



The tailstock from ZEISS makes it possible to clamp shaft-like measurement objects between centers. 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 ideal accessibility, complete measurements can be realized in a single clamping position. ZEISS TS shows its strengths through an interchangeable interface that enables swift setup of the tailstock in the measuring volume if required. In combination with the high-precision air-bearing rotary table ZEISS RT-AB-600, a universal coordinate measuring machine can therefore be quickly and flexibly expanded into a specialized shaft measuring machine. Available in two Z-sizes as the TS-7 and TS-10 variants, the ZEISS TS is perfectly aligned with all members of the ZEISS PRISMO Family.

 

Maximum Speed and Agility for the ZEISS PRISMO Family

Performance Accelerators

The ZEISS PRISMO Family combines speed, flexibility, and productivity at a higher level than ever before and is the future of performance. In combination with technologies such as ZEISS VAST navigator, ZEISS CALYPSO VAST probing, ZEISS CALYPSO pallet optimizer and ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis (ZVRA), effiency can be increased enormously and measurement time reduced.

ZEISS VAST navigator

Automatically configures the optimum scanning speed to reduce user error. Promotes increased scanning speed, consistent accuracy, and reliable and repeatable results.

 

ZEISS VAST navigator

ZEISS CALYPSO VAST probing

Significantly reduces the time spent on single-point measurement while ensuring adequate accuracy. Measurement can be performed up to 25 % faster.

 

ZEISS CALYPSO VAST probing

ZEISS CALYPSO pallet optimizer

Changes the measurement strategy from probe-by-probe to feature-by-feature – for an entire pallet at once. This significantly shortens the measuring time, reduces the need for styli changes, slashes costs, and boosts efficiency.

ZEISS CALYPSO pallet optimizer

ZEISS VAST Rotary Table Axis (ZVRA)

Defines the axis of the rotary table for accurate and reliable measurement. Where axis definition previously involved 6 single-point measurements, ZVRA performs one continuous movement in a fraction of the time.
