What to expect from the new PCMM HandyPROBE Next

As you may have heard, we just proudly launched the newly redesigned HandyPROBE Next, our new portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM). And you may be wondering: what’s in it for me? Well, where shall we begin?


The measurements taken with the new HandyPROBE Next are 2X more accurate than before for your QC inspection! That’s right, we simply doubled the already stellar accuracy of the PCMM . Its volumetric accuracy is now 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.), and is ASME B89.4.22 compliant. And the best part is that, thanks to our TRUaccuracy technology, this level of accuracy for a probing system can be achieved regardless of any environment-related instabilities.

The HandyPROBE Next PCMM is not only lighter and sturdier, but its carbon structure was optimized with FEA, leading to an excellent weight distribution. This means an overall better user experience, as Quality Control experts can comfortably perform longer inspection work sessions than ever before. The HandyPROBE Next can furthermore be operated from 2 ergonomics positions: a more stable “stylus pen style”, as well as a more versatile “joystick style”.

The HandyPROBE Next wireless probe now means that coordinates are captured instantly, without any rigid measurement setup required. This CMM enables starting to work faster, which combined with its ease of use and freedom of movement, results in helping manufacturers constantly improve their quality standards.
