Comparisons with Conventional Coordinate Measuring Machines

Conventional Machine

Comparison 1

Requires substantial initial investments
  • Requires a large installation space
  • Requires compressors to be installed

Comparison 2

Operation mastery
  • Careful part fixturing every time a program is run
  • Measurements can vary depending on the probe's touch speed

Comparison 3

Difficult to handle
