CMM - What's that?

Everybody talks about CMM. But what does it really mean and how does it look like?

ZEISS is a world-famous manufacturer of highly precise measurement technologies since the mid 19th century.

One of our outstanding achievements we are well-known for are CMMs.


CMM stands for coordinate measuring machine. CMMs are devices measuring the surfaces of any objects with a probe.


"CMMs typically specify a probe's position in terms of its displacement from a reference position in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system (i.e., with XYZ axes). In addition to moving the probe along the X, Y, and Z axes, many machines also allow the probe angle to be controlled to allow measurement of surfaces that would otherwise be unreachable." Source


See in our video how for example a ZEISS Duramax works directly in the production process.
