Machine Type and Specifications
           
   Your choices are...         
   Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)       A coordinate measuring system with the means to move a probing system when determining the coordinates of points on a work piece surface (Reference: ISO 10360). 
   Photogrammetry       Photogrammetry uses geometry, mathematics, and physics to create 3-D coordinates from 2-D still pictures taken at different locations of physical objects and the environment. 
   Videogrammetry       Videogrammetry is a noncontact measuring technique where geometry and mathematics are applied to images from video cameras to determine 3-D coordinates of objects. 
   2-D Scanning / Profiling       Scanning / profiling equipment using optical, laser, or other methods to capture 2-D information about objects.  This equipment does not take into account the depth of the object.  2-D scanning can be used for many applications including measuring or creating a profile of an object. 
   3-D Scanning / Profiling       Scanning / profiling equipment using optical, laser, or other methods to capture 3-D information about objects.  The resulting data can be used to reverse engineer an object, measure it, convert it to a digital image, and other applications. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary machine type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Application       
   Your choices are...         
   Dimensional Measurement       Machine used as for dimensional measurement or inspection. 
   Profile Measurement       Machine used to capture information about the profile or form of an object.  The profile could be 2-D or 3-D, depending on the capability of the equipment. 
   Angularity / Orientation       Machine can determine information about the angularity or orientation of an object. 
   Depth Mapping       Depth mapping is constructed by measuring the difference between two stereo images.  Stereo images are successive images of the same scene taken at slightly different angles. The objects further away will move relatively little from one image to the next, whereas objects closer to the viewer will move by a greater degree. A depth map is then created, resulting in a single image using different intensities to represent the different depths. 
   Digitizing / Imaging       Machine uses digitizing, or three-dimensional scanning, to capture the geometry of existing physical objects and convert it into a digital format or image. 
   Shaft Measurement       Machine specifically designed for the measurement and inspection of shafts. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary application. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Resolution       The least increment of a measuring device; on digital instruments, the least significant bit (Reference: ANSI B-89.1.12). 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Number of Sensors / Cameras       Number of sensors or cameras required. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Equipment Design
   Control       
   Your choices are...         
   Manual       Machine positioning is operator controlled. 
   CNC       Machine positioning is controlled by a Computer Numerical Control (CNC). 
   PC       Machine positioning is controlled by a personal computer (PC). 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary control type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Mounting Options      Manufacturers use many of these terms interchangeably. Keeping this in mind, the options have been delineated as follows to help locate the ideal item(s) for your needs.
   Your choices are...         
   Benchtop       The machine mounts on a benchtop or desk. 
   Free Standing       The machine does not need to be mounted. It can stand on its own. 
   Handheld       The device may be operated while being held in the hand.  
   Portable       The device may be moved freely; it is not meant to be bolted or hardwired in place. 
   Other       Other, unlisted mounting option. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Probe / Sensor Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Touch Probe (Discrete Point)       The most common probe type.  Discrete point probes actually touch the surface of the work piece.  Upon contact, a signal containing the coordinates of that point is sent to the CMM.  The probe is then backed off and moved to the next location where the process is repeated.  Types of touch probes include kinematic (switching), strain-sensing, and piezoelectric.  
   Laser Triangulation       Laser triangulation probes are generally referred to as scanning probes.  This method generally involves passing the probe over a target surface at its working range.  As the probe scans the surface, it transmits a continuous flow of data to the measurement system. 
   Camera (Still)       Probe head is a still camera. 
   Video Camera       Probe head is a video camera. 
   Other       Other unlisted probe or sensor type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Crash Protection       Machine has provisions to protect sensitive components in the event of an unanticipated crash. 
   Offline Programming       Software supports offline programming using a CAD model. 
   Reverse Engineering       Machine software capable of performing reversed engineering.  Reverse engineering captures the geometry of existing physical objects and uses this data as a foundation for designing something new as in a CAD file. 
   Shop Floor Suitable       Equipment is suitable for operation on the shop floor as opposed to a clean inspection area. 
   SPC Software       Machine has integrated SPC software for statistical analysis.  
   Temperature Compensation       Machine automatically compensates for a change in the environmental temperature. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
