Coord3 Metrology Opens New North American Sales And Service Center
Anticipating significant growth in CMM sales heading into 2013, the Italian CMM builder opens a new sales and service facility that includes an ISO17025-certified CMM rebuild and remanufacturing center.
Global coordinate measuring machine (CMM) manufacturer Coord3 Metrology recently opened a new North American Sales and Service Center in Wixom, MI. Elliott Mills, the company’s North American general manager, says, “We are aggressively expanding our global reach and introducing new CMM products. North America is an important market for us.”
Mills noted that “we have an installed base of over 3000 CMMs, many of which are in the U.S. and Mexico. From our new sales and service facility, which includes an ISO17025-certified CMM rebuild and remanufacturing center, we anticipate significant growth in CMM sales heading into 2013.”
Mills explains, “We have a wide range of CMM solutions that include, bridge-style, horizontal arm and gantry designs. We offer everything from an entry-level bridge-type CMMs to sophisticated, large gantry CMM designs that are ideal for aerospace and wind energy applications. Our mechanical designs are a benchmark for best-in-class dynamics and metrology performance, as evidenced by the fact that other leading CMM manufacturers incorporate our structures into their own range of CMMs.”
“Coord3 Metrology has a very flexible philosophy towards the application of CMM software on our machines,” adds Mills. “Today many manufacturers offer a single specific CMM software solution. We are very familiar with all of the popular third-party metrology software providers and can supply customers with any of these independent metrology softwares. We also recommend what we feel is the best software for a specific part application and skill-set for the user.”
Mills concludes, “We have recently partnered with several companies here in the U.S. by supplying our CMM structures for integration with their sensor and software technology. One of those companies is PECO (Tipp City, OH), which is expanding their gear inspection machine range of products by adding bridge and gantry vertical gear inspection CMMs that offer both gear and prismatic inspection solutions.
“This new range of PECO hybrid gear inspection machines was recently showcased at the 2012 IMTS Show in Chicago,” he continued. “At the same time, we are also expanding our network of distribution partners for the U.S. and Canada.”
