Many advances in CMM technology have occurred over the decades, including the development of portable CMMs. Portable CMMs provide all the benefits of traditional CMMs but with added flexibility. They are lightweight and can therefore be used anywhere measurement is needed (the machine goes to the part). A controlled environment is not required and operation is very simple. They provide highly accurate results and are robust enough to work in a wide range of environments. Portable CMMs are also typically much less expensive than a traditional CMM.
