Testing CMMs and the ISO 10360 standards

Description: This technical presentation provides an overview of the specifications used to describe the accuracy of coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) along with the methods and tools used to calibrate CMMs in the field. The national and international standards used by all CMM manufacturers, including the ISO 10360 series, will be discussed. The history and purpose of standardized testing will also be briefly reviewed to provide understanding on how the calibration of CMMs differs from other measuring equipment. This presentation will also discuss the role of CMM calibration in traceability and show how Mitutoyo America provides traceability to CMM calibrations. test_cmm_ho_pic Download handout style: Tech Presentation - Testing CMMs and the ISO 10360 standards Handout

Testing vision CMMs and ISO 10360-7

Description: ISO 10360-7:2011 is the first international standard to address the calibration and testing of non-contacting coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) equipped with any type of imaging probing system, such as video or vision measuring instruments. This technical presentation provides an overview of this standard along with some insight into the options available in the standard. This presentation also explains how the tests in this standard can be used for the most modern three-dimensional measuring systems while still providing testing methods to meet the needs of older systems. test_viscmm_ho_pic Download handout style:  Tech Presentation - Testing Vision CMMs and ISO 10360-7 Handout test_viscmm_pres_pic Download presentation style:
