We generally work 8 – 5 Central time, however we are usually available to answer questions and emails as needed. Shoot us an email or give us a call we are here to help! If you do not catch us we normally respond in less than 1 business day.

A portable CMM is a coordinate measurement machine that works on a 3D coordinate system to measure data points, these single points can be used to create geometry. Portable CMM’s are designed to be used in harsher environments than traditional CMMs.

3D scanning involves mounting a laser line probe to a portable CMM and using it to digitize a part. The laser line probe generates a line of data points as you move the CMM so this allows large amounts of data to be collected very fast. This data builds a 3D representation of the part we can measure or use to build CAD models from.

Normally accuracy of single parts with contact measurement will be .001” - .005”, Laser scan data will be .003” - .008”. Contact us for specific needs and we can discuss your project.

Yes, we specialize in providing the services with portable equipment so we can work in your facility. This service allows us the best chance to solve problems as all the fixtures and pieces are there to work with.

Lead time for inspection reports in normally a few days after measurement is completed, when we are performing measurements on site for a problem solving approach we will dimension what we need to as we measure to find the problems. CAD models are usually delivered less than one week after data collection.

Lead times will vary based on project please contact us with your needs.
