UPDATED: The Guide to CMM Retrofitting

retrofitting guide

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.

A Closer Look At CMM Retrofitting


It’s estimated that upwards of 150,000 CMM’s are in active service across the globe and many of these will be 10 years old or more. While the structure of the CMM has changed very little in the last 50 years, the software and technology have both come a long way and continue to evolve at a rapid pace. When a machine’s software and technology such as become outdated, performance suffers and deadlines are missed – resulting in unhappy clients, quality standards not being met and decreased profitability.

The most effective way to resolve this and have your machine working at optimal performance again is CMM retrofitting.
