A used coordinate measuring machine is a piece of metrology equipment that has been previously owned and operated. Used CMMs are designed to measure the geometric points of a physical object and can include bridge CMMs, gantry CMMs, and portable CMMs. When calibrated and repaired correctly, used CMMs can perform at the same level of efficiency and accuracy as a new machine.
There are several benefits that come with purchasing a CMM for sale from our used inventory, including:
Purchasing new metrology equipment can significantly increase costs for manufacturers and production leaders. Finding a CMM previously used for sale by a certified metrology provider is a cost-effective solution that doesn’t sacrifice accuracy or proficiency.
When purchased directly from a licensed metrology provider, pre-owned CMMs should be able to pass every operational test and perform at the same level as a new model. When you purchase a used CMM for sale from CMMXYZ in the United States or Canada, you can have peace of mind knowing that it has been thoroughly inspected and certified in A1 working order.
We carry a wide variety of professionally graded, pre-owned CMMs from several prominent manufacturers. Our metrology specialists will help you source the right machine for your shop floor with additional delivery and installation services.
At CMMXYZ, each machine comes with a full MDNA 30-day warranty with the exception of any new components, which would then receive the OEM warranty.
Choosing a pre-owned CMM is an important decision for any manufacturer or production leader. When sourcing the right machine for your shop floor, consider these essential components:
Probing systems are crucial to any used CMM machine. These are systems that allow a coordinate measuring machine to gather the necessary data on an object or machine part. Since a CMM’s probe can be costly, it’s important to confirm with your metrology provider that the machine’s probe has been thoroughly inspected and can perform with the highest level of accuracy.
Knowing where and how your pre-owned CMM was operated could provide the necessary insight and help you determine if a particular machine will be able to perform effectively in your current environment. Our technicians will provide a full maintenance report and a video detailing the machine’s functional capabilities.
Age of the Machine
While used CMMs can perform equally as well as a new machine, it’s important to consider the age of the CMM you’re interested in as metrology technology changes rapidly. Depending on where and how the machine will be operated, you may wish to discuss its design and capabilities with our trusted metrology technicians.
When it comes to quality CMM services, many machinery dealers simply don’t understand the complexities and nuances of coordinate measuring machines and will turn over a machine regardless of its condition. At CMMXYZ, we’re North America’s leading metrology provider with over 30 years of industry experience and expertise.
We offer one of the largest inventories of used CMM equipment with delivery capabilities across the United States and Canada. Our technicians go above and beyond simply selling a used bridge or used portable CMM. We ensure each machine has been thoroughly inspected at our facility and is entirely in A1 working order, with any flawed components immediately reconditioned or replaced.
We’re proud to offer a wide inventory of different types of CMMs from the industry’s leading manufacturers, including used Brown and Sharpe CMMs, used Zeiss CMMs, used DEA CMMs, used Hexagon CMMs, Used LK CMMs, and used Mitutoyo CMMs. Each piece of equipment on our website includes key information about the machine, ranging from its size to its software capabilities.
In addition to our inventory of used CMMs for sale, we offer professional calibration and repair services to ensure your pre-owned machine is able to collect data with the same accuracy and efficiency as today’s new models.
Our metrology services provide real solutions to challenges facing our clients’ industries, whether they’re in the automotive, aerospace, or healthcare sector. We use leading machinery and software to change how manufacturers and production leaders measure components on their shop floors.
Once you’ve purchased a used coordinate measuring machine, it’s important to conduct regular CMM maintenance to ensure your machine can perform at its highest level. There are three key components of your machine that should be routinely inspected.
Dust can compromise your machine’s capabilities and impact data collection. Using lint-free cloths will ensure the delicate components of your CMM are protected from dust particles.
When filters are not regularly maintained, they can succumb to discolouration and contamination. Cleaning your machine’s filters and performing regular maintenance will keep your CMM operating at its highest level.
Consistent airflow will ensure your air bearings are protected and routine air pressure checks will alert you of any contamination that could damage your machine.
The cost of a used CMM machine for sale can vary depending on several factors, including the size and condition of the machine. When it comes to purchasing a used CMM, our prices are fair and transparent, so you can feel certain you’re getting your money’s worth.
