Taking A Closer Look at Portable Measuring Arm Servicing
Portable metrology systems have come a long way in recent years and the technology is only getting better. Probably the most significant advancement in portable arm technology is repeatable mounting which saves the user time and guarantees continued accuracy. These advancements are making portable CMM’s a mainstay for manufacturing businesses across a range of sectors and we’re increasingly getting asked about portable metrology and what applications it’s best suited for.
As with standard bridge CMM’s, portable systems also require a lot of care and attention to ensure continued accuracy. Generally, a 12 month interval for scheduled PCMM maintenance is enough but this depends on use. If your portable equipment is used for many hours every day, and or in a harsh environment then you might want to consider more frequent scheduled maintenance.
Let’s take a closer look at what portable measuring arm servicing should include…

UPDATED: The Guide to CMM Retrofitting
We’ve just updated our FREE Guide to CMM Retrofitting.
Fortunately for businesses that invest in CMM equipment, CMM hardware is built to last. Though the initial cost of investment in a new or refurbished machine may be high, the actual structure of the machine is pretty durable, giving decades of use and a great ROI with the right maintenance.
However, in many ways CMM technology is advancing rapidly. Just over the past few years we have seen huge changes in inspection techniques, production methodologies and operator skill sets to name but a few. Plus advancements in software, probing equipment and electronic controllers.
Retrofitting involves selectively replacing and modernising key equipment to improve a CMM’s accuracy and productivity, while leaving the structural components intact.
In the guide we cover:
- Why Retrofit?
- Advantages of Retrofitting?
- Latest Generation Components
- PC-DMIS Metrology Software
And much more.
