Why CMM Arms will not overcome...

21st Century
Measuring Challenges

Summarized from the 2012
CMSC International Conference

Portable CMMs have revolutionized the world of metrology, bringing inspection tasks right into the production line, as close to the part as possible. But this huge improvement is not without its own set of challenges. This white paper will explain how portable CMMs compare to CMM arms, and highlight how portable CMMs truly are the future.

In this White Paper, you will learn about:

  • The main obstacles to high-accuracy measurements faced by metrologists in production environments
  • The results from a lab experiment comparing a CMM arm (an 8-feet polyarticulated arm) and a portable optical CMM (a HandyPROBE from Creaform)
  • The surprising impact of operator-related errors and how these affect the quality of measurements
  • The benefits of dynamic referencing and how it can help you overcome challenges and ensure accuracy.

Can you afford less-than-accurate measurements? See for yourself how portable CMMs can exceed traditional CMM arm specifications.
