Calibration is an integral part of ensuring the accuracy and performance of a coordinate measuring machine. Without proper arm calibration, machines are at a greater risk of inaccuracy and failure to measure altogether.
The process of calibrating a CMM arm involves a series of tests to determine the machine’s level of uncertainty and how it functions in relation to current industry standards. An accredited CMM company
will assess a Faro arm’s accuracy and performance through these tests by inspecting the probes and the arm. At CMMXYZ, we provide professional metrology services across North America, including ISO 17025 accredited Faro arm calibrations. Our trained metrologists are able to carry out a series of tests to determine the reliability and functionality of a portable arm and its software.
