This 2-day classroom course is designed for anyone using advanced dimensional measuring systems, such as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), vision systems, roundness testers, and surface finish measuring instruments. This course is not a Mitutoyo software training course, but is designed to complement the product training offered by Mitutoyo or anyone else. The goal of this course is for the student to develop deeper knowledge of how these advanced measuring systems operate, including hardware and software, to enable the student to maximize the potential of their measuring equipment. The course will focus on best measurement practices for the complicated dimensions and tolerances typically measured on these systems, include geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) from ASME Y14.5 and ISO 1101. This course will cover topics such as CMM sampling strategies (number and location of points), proper use of datums and how to build coordinate systems, probe and tip calibration, software vs GD&T, system accuracy, filtering and cutoffs, and other critical topics that must be understood by anybody implementing this kind of measuring equipment. This course will focus heavily on the measurement of GD&T with CMMs, and therefore familiarity with GD&T is necessary for a successful educational experience. This course will also teach GD&T from a measurement perspective and will provide opportunities for the student to reinforce their GD&T knowledge. This course combines theory with practice and is taught in a hands on, experiential, manner. This course is taught in the Metrology Training Lab at Mitutoyo America, which is full of various measuring equipment that will be used by the students.

To be successful in this course, students must have prior experience on some type of CMM and must have basic understanding of GD&T. Prior experience with vision or form equipment is useful, but optional. Students with no prior CMM experience, or who have not attended the CMM software training provided by their CMM manufacturer, should not attend this course.
