Title: MOVING BRIDGE COORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE
Abstract:
A recess or pocket is formed in at least one leg of a moving bridge assembly of a coordinate measuring machine, and in a particular embodiment in a primary leg of a moving bridge assembly, to permit a quill to move farther in the X direction to an end of a planar base surface of the coordinate measuring machine adjacent the leg without interfering with the leg. The recess formed in the leg of the moving bridge assembly permits coordinate measurements of a part whose width covers the full area of the planar surface of the base, without necessarily adding significant cost or increasing the footprint of the measurement system.
