Like CNC machine tools on the shop floor, CMM’s are becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity in the manufacturing process. Our customer’s customers are demanding better parts and better accountability. Quality Engineers face the same problems as Manufacturing Engineers. Odd shaped parts are as difficult to inspect as they are to machine. Getting consistent results is just as important in inspection as it is in manufacturing so it makes sense to have the same people that designed your machining fixture design your CMM fixture. Who knows the process better?
