Leitz Reference CMM Line

Flexibility and high levels of accuracy combined

Leitz Reference CMM Line

Product enquiry

Leitz Reference coordinate measuring machines (CMM) can be adapted to a wide range of measurement applications without reducing their all-round capability, and the selection of different sensors makes them exceptionally flexible. From the ultra high accuracy Leitz Reference ULTRA to the extremely flexible Leitz Reference Xi, the Leitz Reference line offers the highest standards in flexibility and accuracy across a broad range of demanding measurement tasks.

Leitz Reference Xi

The Leitz Reference Xi series of high accuracy coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence are optimised for flexibility. Equipped with Hexagon’s sophisticated technology, the Leitz Reference Xi is a flexible all-round tool. Thanks to a large selection of different sensor systems and hardware options, the Leitz Reference Xi is optimised for adaptation to the most demanding of measurement tasks, even in shop floor environments up to 35° C.

  • Features & benefits

    Future Ready
    The Future Ready concept optimises the CMM for the SENMATION intelligent sensor automation system upgrade. The universal pre-cabling enables a simple integration process at any time, allowing for flexible application changes without costly downtime.

    CMM Status From A Distance
    The Status Messaging Lights provide an overview of your CMMs status so you can check machine status at a glance, even at a distance. This means the CMM can be left to measure, allowing you to optimise time and resource management.

    Rotary Tables
    As an integrated or on-top version, rotary tables up to a diameter of 600 mm and a maximum table load of 550 kg can be used for fast 4-axis scanning and component positioning.

    Temperature Sensor
    An optional exchangeable temperature sensor for the LSP-S2 Scan+ and the HP-S-X5 HD enables automatic part-temperature measurement at the workpiece (integrated in the measurement program).

    XT Option
    The XT option enables accurate and reliable measurement in the expanded temperature range of 15 °C to 30 °C (Reference HP) or 35°C (Reference Xi), which is indispensable in environments where temperature conditions are not controlled.

    Active Damping System
    The Leitz Reference Line can be equipped with an active pneumatic damping system to compensate disturbing ground vibrations in shop floor environments that can be caused for example by transportation vehicles or machining centres in the near environment. 

    Real-Time System Traceability
    PULSE enables the user to monitor and log any environmental conditions surrounding the CMM and receive real-time machine information.

  • Mechanical design


    High precision and dynamic
    A moving bridge with the patented TRICISION™ triangular profile provides optimum stiff-to-mass ratio for unquestioned precision and high machine dynamic.

    System Stability

    High system stability

    Monolithic granite base with integrated dovetail guide and preloaded air  bearings in all axes ensure high system stability.

    Optimal measuring performance
    Selected sizes of the Leitz Reference Line are equipped with a ceramic Z-ram to maximise robustness and stiffness. It is the ideal construction to achieve the optimal measuring  performance required by a wide range of applications.

    Outstanding reproducibility
    Outstanding reproducibility
    High-resolution steel scales and automatic temperature compensation offer highest reproducibility of measurement result and reduce the effect of temperature fluctuations on the measurement process.
