Coordinate Measuring


Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) are designed to perform dimensional, profile, angularity, depth mapping, digitizing/imaging, and shaft measurements for post inspection and quality control.


Sizing measurements made in the x, y, and z directions.


Measurements are made to capture information about the form or profile of an object. These measurements may be 2-D or 3-D, depending on the machine capabilities. In this case our CMM can perform 3-D capabilities.


Orientation measurements are made to capture angle information between points on an object.

Depth mapping

Constructed by measuring the difference between two stereo images. Stereo images are successive images of the same scene taken at slightly different angles. The objects further away will move relatively little from one image to the next, whereas objects closer to the viewer will move by a greater degree. A depth map is then created, resulting in a single image using different intensities to represent the different depths.

Digitizing or imaging

Provides a digital format or image to visually capture the geometry of the workpiece from the measurements made by the CMM.


Application-specific designations for measurements made by CMMs designed specifically for inspecting shafts.
