July 19, 2016. AIMS Metrology, in collaboration with FASTLANE, an Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership affiliate of the University of Dayton Research Institute and SK Mold and Tool, has been awarded a $100,000 grant to develop new vision and image recognition technology for its coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). With the new camera system, CMM operators will be able to build probe configurations with a higher degree of reliability. CMM set-up time is also expected to be reduced from 30 minutes to 3 minutes per part, saving manufacturers approximately two hours per shift.
