Until recently, conventional 3-axis CMMs proved largely sufficient. A probe attached to a third moving axis measured a part’s physical characteristics. But slower cycle times, limited flexibility [5 to 7 1/2 degrees of polarity] and lack of mobility have proved problematic in an Industry 4.0 environment.

Isn’t convenience nice? I know I enjoy it, and I think it’s safe to say that everyone does. You have to admit, when you see that batteries are in fact included with your purchase, you feel just a little relieved and happy. Or, when you want to buy chips and chip dip, and lo and behold, the grocery store added a stand-alone rack full of dip right next to your favorite flavor, you think that it’s, well, nice and convenient.
