Demo and Used Portable CMMs
Portable arm coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) have steadily advanced in measurement performance and software capability since their introduction in the mid-1990’s. Portable CMMs are designed for use almost anywhere in the manufacturing environment, but their performance is most suitable for cast and fabricate components with wider tolerances.
Because they are usually used on the shop floor, portable arm CMMs often show the wear and tear of a much tougher life than a bridge CMM. In almost all cases, repair and calibration requires the system to be returned to the factory. When buying a used portable arm system getting an up-to-date, accredited calibration certificate is a must.

Why Buy Used?
Most measuring systems live relatively easy lives compared to other manufacturing equipment. In many cases, hardware and software upgrades can make the equipment as good as new. This offers buyers a unique opportunity to save money. While many buyers are tempted by the price, fully understanding the total cost of ownership, including the costs of installation, calibration, upgrading, and repair, will help you evaluate whether you’re really getting a good deal. The bottom line is that used measuring systems offer great value when you make educated buying decisions.
