Coordinate Measuring Machines

This category includes machines used to measure an object’s geometry through discrete surface point sensing via probe, commonly either a laser, optical probe, mechanical probe, or white light. Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) can be calibrated to complete repeated measuring tasks automatically without reprogramming after each use. CMMs commonly use micrometer precision to track probe movement along three axes, producing a ‘point cloud’ mapping the object’s surface. CMMs are commonly used to test a machined part against its intended pattern for accuracy of manufacture.

Using Intelligent Machine Control To Optimize Quality Assurance 

Hexagon, Scott Mahrle, Intelligent machine control (IMC) software

One of manufacturing’s biggest challenges is filling the knowledge gap left by skilled employees who retire. Intelligent machine control (IMC) increases throughput regardless of who’s operating measurement and production equipment by removing the potential for human error.
