How to get the best out of CMMs

Date : 31 May to 1 June 2022

Time : 1340 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


Coordinate measuring machines, popularly called as CMMs are highly flexible & universal devices for measuring the Dimensional, Geometrical, Positional, and Surface finish characteristics of an object in a highly coordinated manner. CMMs have provided the capability for comprehensive measurements in one measurement station for both quality assurance and quality control. CMM measures coordinates in all three axis and provides results for modern engineering set up.

Today product development cycles are becoming shorter, processes are becoming more agile, and norms and standards are changing constantly. Having the right skill set and updating the latest in metrology training is a must whether you are a beginner or an expert. CMM's provide high flexibility and productivity improvement with accuracy and precision. The program focus on understanding the abilities of CMM's and adopting them to achieve high throughput with required accuracy and precision.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing an online program on How to get the best out of CMMs.
