PC-DMIS CMM Software Is PTB Certified

pc dmis ptb certified

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.

Each goes into more detail of how the testing was conducted as well as the results which include MPE’s.

With PC-DMIS being tested and certified by the PTB it really is proof that our partners over at Hexagon have created something special that’s at the cutting edge of metrology. But this mark of approval isn’t the only reason you should consider PC-DMIS…


If you’re in an industry that requires parts to be inspected and measured to extremely high standards – such as the aerospace industry and you use a CMM machine to inspect those parts then PC-DMIS should really be a no brainer.

World’s leading CMM software: it’s the world’s leading CMM software solution with over 80,000 users registered worldwide. It’s the perfect solution for manufacturing businesses wanting to save time, reduce costs, increase productivity and enjoy greater control over measurements.

Regular updates: it gets regular updates with new features added each time round. The details from the latest update can be found in our blog post here.

Backwards compatibility: Concerned about losing access to existing programs that PC-DMIS can’t run? We offer a universal interface that allows access to your entire program back catalogue if they were created in M-COSMOS, Calypso, PowerInspect, TouchDMIS, Verisurf, Polyworks, Siemens NX, Modus, Camio, VirtualDMIS and OpenDMIS.

Existing features: the features it has currently are exceptional. Its Path Optimizer tool alone more than makes up for the cost of the software, allowing parts to be measured more efficiently and thus meaning you can get more parts measured in a set time.
