CMMs are industrial inspection tools that measure the dimensional accuracy of manufactured goods. This is a crucial step to monitoring production quality to ensure large-sized parts meet design specifications for use in critical applications. At Technox Machine & Manufacturing, we combine high quality manufacturing with CMM inspection services to produce excellent goods for our customers.

What Is CMM?
Coordinate Measuring Machines are industrial tools that measure the dimensionality of objects. They use different mechanisms, such as scanners, touch-triggers, and vision probes, to measure objects along the X-, Y-, and Z-axis. The measurements can then be compared to the initial design plans or specifications of the object to ensure the finished product is adequately identical to the original design. CMMs are typically constructed from granite and aluminum to ensure functionality and accuracy even in harsh temperatures and environments.
Why Do I Need CMM Inspection Services?
CMMs offer a reliable alternative to handheld inspection tools. They monitor the quality of manufactured items to ensure that they match original design plans within the customer’s preferred tolerance levels. CMMs can measure objects at different stages of production to quickly catch issues before the project is finished or before large-volume runs are completed, keeping the production process fast and efficient with less material waste.
While CMMs aren’t the only inspection tools available for industrial and commercial use, they are one of the most advantageous. Some of the key benefits that CMMs provide include:
- Versatility. CMMs can be used for a wide variety of measuring tasks, regardless of the object’s complexity and condition of the object’s surface.
- Accuracy. CMMs reduce the risk of human error and are exceedingly precise, especially if they’re routinely inspected. They have consistent responses to heat and the environment, meaning the measurement software can easily cancel out related complications.
- Speed. CMMs offer quick set up time and can quickly take measurements across all three dimensions.
Technox Machine & Manufacturing Is the Industry Expert
Technox Machine & Manufacturing excels at quality assurance, and our customers turn to us for start to finish manufacturing services. When exact adherence to dimensionality and complex product designs is essential, we provide in-house machining, finishing, and inspection services to ensure high quality products.
We specialize in creating large and oversized parts. Our quality assurance program maintains a long list of advanced testing and measuring equipment for the inspection of large workpieces. Since large projects often pose complications, such as warping and other structural problems, it’s important to choose a manufacturer that has experience working with large parts.
Our Quality Assurance Program
As part of our quality assurance program, we complete several steps to monitor the dimensionality and production quality of each part using our high-tech equipment, such as CMMs.
