CMM Room

Our state-of-the-art Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) room is designed to ensure precision and accuracy in all of our inspection processes. Equipped with a Mitutoyo CMM machine, our CMM room can accurately measure parts up to 700mm x 1000mm x 600mm in size with a precision of up to 2 microns. We ensure accuracy and consistency by keeping the

room temperature-controlled, regardless of external factors. Our CMM capabilities enable us to provide 2D reporting and detailed analysis of our customers’ parts, ensuring they meet even the strictest of specifications. Trust us to provide you with the highest level of precision measurement services for your manufacturing needs.

CMM Room

At Ideal Gear, we have a dedicated CMM room with a Mitutoyo CRYSTA APEX S 9168. This machine is a state-of-the-art coordinate measuring machine with a measurement range of 36″ x 36″ x 32″, making it capable of handling large parts with ease.

Temperature Control

Our CMM room is temperature-controlled to ensure that measurements are accurate and consistent. This is important in industries like aerospace, where even the slightest deviation can have serious consequences. By keeping the temperature consistent, we can ensure that our measurements are always accurate, even when dealing with complex parts.

2D Reporting

We provide 2D reporting for our CMM inspections, which allows us to provide detailed, accurate reports on the measurements we take. These reports can be used for quality control and to ensure that parts meet industry standards.
