Why Buy Used?
There are several benefits of buying used CMMs over buying new ones. For starters, “They sure don’t make them like they use to!” is a commonly heard phrase spoken about today’s manufactured CMMs. When CMM manufactures spend more time focusing on increased profit margins and cost savings, it seems product quality finds itself farther down the priority list. Coordinate measuring machines manufactured back in the 1980’s and 1990’s are mechanically superior to those built today. Another valid reason to warrant the purchase of a used CMM is our economy’s growing concern regarding conserving natural resources. Why not do your part, and reduce your company’s carbon footprint. Bobier Metrology Soltuions is committed to doing our part by reusing the steel frames and granite off of older model CMMs, reducing our carbon footprint one CMM at a time.
On average our used CMMs cost less than half the cost of new. Don’t believe us? Call us today for a comparative quotation.
Bobier Metrology has been in the CMM business for over 30 years, with a combined technical knowledge base of over 100 years of experience. Our CMM technical staff is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited to repair and calibrate CMMs. Our knowledge of CMMs has lead us to what we believe to be a world class method of re-manufacturing outdated CMMs and turning them into top rate coordinate measuring machines.
All of our CMMs come with a minimum 12-month warranty. Because we rebuild CMMs and only reuse the granite or cast iron frame, we are able to offer the same if not better warranty than available from a CMM manufacturer.
