Portable vs. fixed coordinate measuring machines (CMMs)

July 10, 2019

When is it better to use a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) over a fixed CMM, and vice versa? Is one solution better than the other?

Your decision on whether to invest in a fixed versus portable CMM will be based on a composite of answers to questions such as:

  • Size of parts to be measured
  • Actual level of accuracy required
  • Throughput requirements

It’s not likely that any one aspect will provide a make-or-break answer, but this whitepaper will help you examine the differences and help your team determine which solution is better in addressing your unique inspection needs.
