Half Price PC-DMIS Software with any new RC Line Controller. CMM Retrofits & Upgrades to Give your Machine a New Lease of Life

RC1 controller

The performance and accuracy of a CMM decrease with its age, not physically but due to the rapid advancements in CMM software and technology. As the machine starts becoming less reliable, most companies will begin sourcing a new machine. Failing to replace your CMM on time can lead to delays, inspection bottlenecks and profit loss.

However, what if we told you that you didn’t have to replace your CMM and that we were able to give your existing machine a new lease of life? Imagine being able to save tens of thousands of pounds on purchasing a new machine but benefitting from similar performance and accuracy outputs. This can be achieved with Status CMM retrofits and upgrades.

What’s involved in a Status CMM retrofit?

A CMM retrofit involves selectively replacing and modernising core components of the CMM – including the controller and the software.

A Status retrofit is flexible, and we can deliver various levels of retrofitting depending on your machine and requirements. Typical CMM retrofits will generally include new CMM software (PC-DMIS), new probe heads, new controllers, a new PC, an upgrade of the CNC control system and more.

Following the completion of a CMM retrofit you’ll instantly benefit from longer machine life, lower maintenance costs, increased reliability, accuracy efficiency and inspection capacity – all enabling your business to inspect more parts, quickly and most importantly accurately. All of this for a FRACTION of the cost of a new or used machine.

What if I don’t want a full retrofit?

If you don’t quite think a retrofit is for you or you just want to upgrade a specific part of your machine, then we can provide several CMM upgrade options. These include but are not limited to:

  • Upgrading your PC-DMIS CMM software
  • Replacing your controller to a top of the range RC Line Hexagon controller
  • Installing a new probe head

Investing in a CMM upgrade with Status will expand your capacity and reduce your maintenance requirements while saving on the significant cost investment of a new machine.

But that’s not all… Our PC-DMIS retrofits still allow access to your existing software be that M-COSMOS, CAMIO and CALYPSO to name just a few. Please take a closer look because PC-DMIS is now half price when bought with an RC Line Controller.

For our customers that upgrade to a new Hexagon controller, you’re entitled to a PC-DMIS license for half the usual price!

This is an incredible offer, however, many of our clients see this as a stumbling block as they don’t want to lose access to their old measurement programs stored in their existing software, and understandably so. However, Status can offer new PC-DMIS customers a revolutionary feature – backwards compatibility to your old software (providing it is from an OEM), allowing access to those old programs.

Time to take a closer look?

There couldn’t be a better time to consider retrofitting or upgrading your CMM machine, even if you’re not currently a PC-DMIS User.
