Why 5-Axis Metrology is Crucial to Creating a Smart Manufacturing Network

AIMS Metrology

Part complexity, tougher quality requirements, and calls for 100% parts inspection are on the rise, straining the capabilities of conventional 3-axis coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). Adding A and B axes via the industry’s only multisensor probe to a CMM’s X, Y, and Z axes increases surface speed and shortens measurement cycles.
