The science behind 3D scanners and CMM technologies is different; however, both collect coordinate measurement data and are widely used within the plastics industry. When is it better suited to use non-contact structured light 3D scanners than touch CMMs?
How has Miltera Machining Research Corp. become an industry-leading producer of prototype and high-tech, ultra-precision parts? The company chalks up a large part of its success to its enduring relationship with ZEISS Industrial Quality Solutions.
Engaging an audience on the technical aspects of quality work can be a challenge: inspection, audits, and measurement systems analysis are hardly the stuff of a lecture that you will find gripping and inspirational.
As the skills gap continues to impact the manufacturing field, skilled CMM users and programmers are harder to come by. In response, CMM companies have built the tools to be easier to operate and program.

Coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) can automate the measurement process and consequently eliminate quality inspection bottlenecks. The highly adaptable tools can measure a wide range of parts and materials and quickly adapt to production changes.
PCMMs automated with the proper inspection software deliver user-prompted, repeatable inspection plans that can be quickly and easily set up and executed using virtually any 3D measurement technology across the manufacturing enterprise.
Improvements in CMM equipment and developments in model-based software solutions have also helped make the technology more accessible.

Engineers have historically used 2D drawings to convey product manufacturing information, even though they design products in 3D. But as quality control has become even more important, and as parts and components are becoming more complex to measure, the demand for automatic measurement programming has grown.
How do you select the right shop-floor CMM for your production line? Making an informed decision means understanding application needs, what solutions can meet your needs and how to “future proof” your selection.
To measure parts with a CNC CMM, measurement specialists must define the objects as well as the sequence of CMM operations to measure them, which can be time consuming. Join us in this webinar to discover how to create complete CNC CMM measurement sequences in minutes while staying in control with a universal 3D dimensional analysis and quality control software solution.
