Technical specifications

The HandyPROBE portable CMM provides measurement accuracy that is insensitive to the instabilities of any environment. Free of any rigid measurement setup, the optical CMM outperforms traditional portable CMMs on the shop floor. The part, C-Track optical tracker and wireless probe can be moved at any time during the measurement sequence and generate the same high-quality data.

This metrology inspection solution helps manufacturing companies eliminate inefficiencies in the manufacturing process and mitigates quality control issues.
