nikon metrology cmm automation standalone automationStand-alone CMM automation

Stand-alone CMM automation significantly increases CMM utilization and simplifies running inspection programs. Optimization of a component loading and program execution keeps the CMM measuring as efficiently as possible, and with minimal delays between each task. Selecting and running inspection programs is made easy by intuitive program menus and input devices for the operator, making the CMM a quality tool for production operators.
