Coordinate measuring machines, or CMM, give precise dimensional measurements of physical objects. Gathering data over an XYZ axis, a CMM machine assembles coordinates from a hanging probe which reacts to contact with an object by sending measurements back to the interface. Once the machine finishes running over the surface area of a product, a hyper-accurate measurement of the product’s dimensions will be available for use in sale and distribution, an essential set of parameters for clients seeking products of an exact size.
Coordinate measuring machines acquire reliable dimensional data with maximum efficiency; measuring products by hand can be difficult, time consuming, inaccurate, and an unnecessary cost in comparison to a machine honed for surface area analysis. Manufacturing, component testing, and R&D are a few of the industries that utilize CMM.
ATEC is the leading CMM rental company, offering Hexagon CMM machine and Faro arm rentals as well as other coordinate measuring machine rental options. Our account managers are flexible to customers' needs, whether they stem from production surges, changing inspection requirements or quick replacements in response to repair or calibration. Renting a CMM from ATEC is also a great way to test out a measurement machine before making a capital-heavy investment in a new product.
ATEC supplies CMM machines with mechanical, optical, white light and laser probes.
