PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) is Germany’s National Metrology Institute. Much like an international version of NPL, PTB conducts numerical accuracy of algorithms for computing. The institute stands for progress and reliability in metrology for the benefit of society, trade and industry, and science.
Many of our customers are unaware that the world’s leading CMM software solution, PC-DMIS, is certified by the PTB. This means that the software’s ability to accurately measure straight lines, planes, circles, cylinders, spheres and cones have all been tested and calculated using the Gaussian theory – method of least squares.

Discover the path to super fast measurement and inspections which could save your business a fortune.
The aerospace industry is highly regulated and for good reason. Components have to be manufactured within precise tolerance ranges and because of that there’s absolutely no margin for error.
Sophisticated component measurement and inspection is essential for businesses throughout the entire aerospace supply chain and if you work in the industry you will know that Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM’s) play a vital part in maintaining the high levels of quality and compliance needed to meet regulatory requirements.Read More
What Is The Best CMM Software?
Even the best coordinate measuring machines can’t perform in an excellent manner unless they are fitted with the correct software. New applications are appearing on the market on a regular basis, making the metrology task easier while improving measuring speed and results.
Coordinate Measurement Machines have an interesting history going back almost 60 years. The modern CMM industry produces over 6,000 new CMMs every year, as well as retrofitting and upgrading tens of thousands more. These CMMs can be Manual, where an operator guides the machine, CNC machines that are driven automatically by a special program. As ubiquitous as CMMs now are in manufacturing, it is hard to imagine a world when quality control was dependent on hand measurements. Read More
3 Reasons To Change Or Upgrade Your CMM Software
First, let’s clarify two terms: upgrade and update. A software upgrade to a new version is usually chargeable. New versions deliver significant new functionality and capabilities over older versions and considerable development effort will have been expended to produce the latest version.Read More
