Carl Zeiss IMT Corp. unveiled a new coordinate measuring machine at an open house.

BRIGHTON, MI—Carl Zeiss IMT Corp. (Maple Grove, MN) unveiled a new coordinate measuring machine (CMM) for the first time in the United States at an open house held in late June.

The open house, held at the company’s Brighton, MI, facility, also featured two days of seminars on topics including the future of scanning and programming.

The GageMax CMM, which had previously been shown in Europe, is a continuation of the company’s MaxLine line of shopfloor CMMs and a smaller version of the company’s CenterMax CMM. GageMax was designed for shopfloor and in-process measurement, particularly of small parts. It has a small footprint, access from three sides, carbon concrete base and a 3-D enclosed box at the top of the CMM in which the complete measuring technology is housed.
