Why Retrofit?

renishaw_retrofit_Most CMM structures are not subject to high levels of wear and remain serviceable for many years. However software, control systems, and sensors can become out-dated as new, faster, more capable ones are introduced.

Measurement is vital to any manufacturing business, providing essential information to control processes and verify products. Older coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) can become bottlenecks if they fail to keep pace with changing measurement needs. Advances in sensor, metrology software, and controller technology now offer the opportunity to transform existing CMMs. Resulting in providing greater accuracy, faster measurement, more automation and new capabilities, while taking full advantage of CAD driven programming. In the current economic climate, upgrading makes smart economic and ecological sense.

Upgrading your CMM will provide the following benefits:
  • Increased Measurement Capability
  • Greater Software Functionality & Usability
  • Faster Throughput
  • Automation & Lower Operating Costs
  • Supported, Open CMM Controller
  • Future-Proof Investment
  • Low Risk of Change
