Coordinate Measuring Machine

A coordinate-measuring machine (CMM) is a device for dimensional measuring. It is a machine that is used to move a measuring probe to obtain the coordinates of points on an object surface. These machines are used to measure the dimensions of target objects. Often these parts have tolerances as small as .0001". The machine uses an X-Y-Z grid to determine its position on a worktable. The probe is used to touch different spots on the part being measured. The machine then uses the X,Y,Z coordinates of each of these points to determine size and position.

Precision Measuring

This "point-cloud data" can then be transferred to CAD software to create a working 3D model of the part. The laser scanner is often used to facilitate the "reverse engineering" process. This is the process of taking an existing part, measuring it to determine its size, and creating engineering drawings from these measurements. This is most often necessary in cases where engineering drawings may no longer exist or are unavailable for the particular part that needs replacement.
