The development of 3D Coordinate Measuring Machine

TIME:02-08 2023

The development of 3D Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) started in the mid-20th century with the introduction of manual CMMs.

These manual machines used probes to measure physical objects and manually record the coordinates of points. With the advancement of computer technology, CMMs evolved into computer-aided devices that automate the measurement process, improving accuracy and efficiency. 

Today, modern 3D CMMs are equipped with advanced software and hardware features such as touch-probe systems, laser scanners, and software for data analysis, modeling, and reverse engineering. 3D CMMs are widely used in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing for quality control, inspection, and production processes.
