(FR) CONTREPOIDS POUR MODULE TRAVAILLANT INTERCHANGEABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of operating a coordinate positioning apparatus comprising an articulated head having at least one rotational axis. The method comprises, in any suitable order, loading at least one interchangeable task module onto the articulated head; and loading at least one interchangeable task module counterweight on the articulated head. The at least one interchangeable task module counterweight at least partially counterbalances the weight of the at least one task module on the articulated head about the at least one axis.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé pour faire fonctionner un appareil de positionnement de coordonnées qui comprend une tête articulée ayant au moins un axe de rotation. Le procédé selon l'invention comprend, dans un ordre approprié quelconque, les étapes suivantes : chargement d'au moins un module travaillant interchangeable sur la tête articulée; et chargement d'au moins un contrepoids de module travaillant interchangeable sur la tête articulée. Le ou les contrepoids de module travaillant interchangeable équilibrent le poids du ou des modules travaillants sur la tête articulée, autour du ou des axes.
