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.
