CMM Training --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Three Days of Training Includes:

• CMM instruction by an expert CMM Programmer who is also a Certified Quality Inspector (CQI)
• The course will consist of hands-on programming using a CMM training block as well as actual parts.

The course covers step-by-step instruction in the following:

• CMM Overview
• Care and maintenance
• Selection, calibration, types and deletion of spheres and probes
• Homing
• Part planning
• Alignments
• Statistics (some CMMs)
• Part limits
• System components
• Menu overview
• Elements
• File management (saving, restoring, copying, deleting)
• Header
• Part Programming
• Part program management
• Nesting programs
• Editing programs
• DCC status

Customized CMM Training

• PC-DMIS: We are specialized in completing of training on PC-DMIS

• Pro(Basic): First time users benefit from our many years of experience, we have worked hard to make sure our classes reach even the most inexperienced operator. Previous knowledge not required.

• CAD: We can take the basic PCDMIS operator into the world of CAD and how it applies to the CMM. How CAD can  be used to enhance the CMM and shorten programming time.

• CAD++: Taking CAD interface into the reverse engineering world. Functionality using specific scanning routines to digitize entire parts.

• Print Interpretation: Let us help you interpret your prints, skilled application engineers - well versed in GD&T
• Custom Training: We can learn your requirements and turn them into training class to optimize the CMM need.


• Capabilities:

o Brown & Sharpe CMM, Xcel 7.6.5 DCC
o Sheffield CMM, Discovery D8
o PCDMIS, on-line & off-line Versions V. 3.5-4.2
