Innovalia Metrology’s versatile M3 Hybrid coordinate measuring machine (CMM) combines touch probe measurement with an Optiscan optical sensor, enabling flexible integration into both off-line and in-line measurement. The company says that the CMM provides higher speed and reliability when making a three-dimensional measurement, reaching difficult access points with the touch sensor system and optical scanning of the rest of the workpiece. In conjunction with these intelligent metrology tools, the company’s M3 software platform promotes high measurement accuracy of 3D automotive, railroad, aircraft and turbine components, among others.

The company adds that its hybrid system enables immediate, in-line detection of critical deformations from stamping and machining processes, providing high dimensional accuracy to comply with quality standards in the plastics industry. The M3 Hybrid comes in different sizes in a single or duplex design.
