Most CMMs manufactured in the 1980s and 1990s are well made, sturdy machines. These machines, and even newer ones, have outdated systems and software.
Retrofitting these CMMs with new hardware and software will restore them to state-of-the-art-equipment. It will increase productivity, extend the life of the CMM and in most cases increase the CMMs accuracy with new linear and volumetric error compensation.
Encoder and Scale Replacement
In addition to hardware and software, we can also replace encoder and scale systems. Some encoder and scale systems have been discontinued by the manufacturer, including the “ribbon” encoders for Brown & Sharpe CMM models. New digital encoder and scale replacement can help you achieve greater measurement accuracy and reliability from your current CMM.
