DEA Bravo HD

Type: Inspection and Measurement

The Bravo HD is a technically advanced and cost-effective solution for flexible and accurate dimensional inspection of thin-walled components like bodies-in-white, chassis, subassemblies, panels, car doors, dashboards, castings, structural aircraft, ship and railway components. It utilizes a stable, precise mechanical structure, an integrated temperature compensation system, a wide range of probes, probe heads, wrists and accessories and a state-of-the-art software package. The Bravo HD is an effective coordinate measuring machine that is particularly well suited for metrology labs and QC rooms.

The Bravo HD is fully made of steel, ensuring high structural stability in all environments. All axes use recirculating ball-bearing pads sliding on high-precision guideways. The innovative backlash-free horizontal-arm counterbalance keeps the load centered on the mobile carriage and reduces the mechanical deformations of the carriage itself. The open structure can be embedded flush with the floor. The walkable covers on the longitudinal axes guarantee optimum access to the measuring area and simplify loading and unloading of parts as well as programming and automatic dimensional inspection.

The BRAVO series are available in either single or dual arm configuration.

The Bravo HD is available in the following sizes:

  • 40.16.21
  • 40.16.25
  • 40.16.30
