USUALLY when a company is buying a new CMM (Coordinate Measurement Machine), all they are budgeting for is the CMM with no fixturing. Inspexi-Universal CMM Metrology Pty Ltd can help with proper fixturing both for contact and non-contact measuring regardless of the size and purpose.

Poor budgeting is a common mistake, made in more than 95% of the cases.

After buying the CMM the company is realising that they cannot measure the parts and products accurately because of the missing fixturing and jigging for the measured product.

Probably one of many CMM operator nightmares, especially when under pressure with a new product introduction, is the fact that the user does not have the right fixture and cannot assure a proper measurement.

As everybody knows in the industry 50% or more of a proper CMM measurement is the support and holding down of the measured part.

In conclusion before buying a CMM, budget beforehand for the fixturing.
