Global CMM manufacturer, Coord3 Metrology, opened a new North American Sales and Service Center in Wixom, Michigan. Elliott Mills, Coord3 Metrology’s North American general manager says, “Coord3 is aggressively expanding its global reach and introducing new CMM products. North America is an important market for Coord3.”
Mills says, “Coord3 has an installed base of over 3,000 CMMs, of which many are in the United States and Mexico. From our new CMM sales and service facility that includes an ISO17025 certified CMM rebuild and remanufacturing center, Coord3 anticipates significant growth in CMM sales heading into 2013.”
Mills explains, “Coord3 Metrology has a wide range of CMM solutions that include, bridge-style, horizontal arm and gantry designs. We offer everything from an entry-level bridge-type CMMs, to sophisticated large gantry CMM designs that are ideal for aerospace and wind energy applications. Our CMM mechanical designs are a benchmark for best-in-class dynamics and metrology performance, as evidenced by the fact that other leading CMM manufacturers incorporate Coord3 structures into their own range of CMM products.”
“Coord3 Metrology has a very flexible philosophy towards the application of CMM software on our machines,” Mills adds. “Today, many manufacturers offer a single specific CMM software solution. Coord3 is very familiar with all of the popular 3rd party metrology software providers and can supply customers with any of these independent metrology softwares. We also recommend what we feel is the best software for a specific part application and skill-set for the user.”
Mills concludes, “We have recently partnered with several companies here in the USA by supplying our CMM structures for integration with their sensor and software technology. One of those companies is PECO in Tipp City, Ohio. PECO is expanding their gear inspection machine range of products with the addition of bridge and gantry vertical gear inspection CMMs, offering both gear and prismatic inspection solutions. This new range of PECO hybrid gear inspection machines was recently showcased at the 2012 IMTS Show in Chicago. At the same time, Coord3 Metrology is also expanding its network of distribution partners for the USA and Canada.”
