How CMM Contract Programmers Can Save You Time And Money

So far, the 21st century has proven to be an era of technological change and development the impact and revolutionary power of which can only be rivalled by the industrial revolution in the early 19th century. As the movement now known as Industry 4.0 reshapes how we think about what a production line is and opens up a range of new possibilities for ever more precise, seamless, and efficient delivery of products, staying abreast of new developments can be as challenging as it is necessary.

The cutting edge of all of this change lies in increasing interoperability between machines to create production systems in which different functions and components are in constant communication with each other. Not only does this allow for a kind of systems integration that was difficult to imagine even 10 years ago, it also makes manufacturing far more precise, efficient, and affordable.

But it also requires a greater degree of technical expertise, and while your in-house programmers may be perfectly capable of dealing with regular operational needs, in situations that require specialized care involving sophisticated and complex technology like coordinate measuring machines (CMM), you may want to get help from a CMM programming expert who can help you get the most out of your software and equipment.

CMM programming experts offer a range of services covering everything from modifying existing metrology programs and developing more efficient ways to use existing programs to offering product launch support and helping train your staff on recent updates and new technology.

Contract programmers can also write specific part programs for any application. This includes creating highly sophisticated programs for customized operator interfaces, customized logic routines, and complex geometry, and extends to interfaces with automation, vision inspection, and customized reports.

Furthermore, programmers can create guided routes for portable CMM machines like ROMER arms or Leica Laser Trackers, so the CMM equipment on your shop floor is programmed to meet the particular needs of your production line.

Contracting out programming work can seem like an unnecessary expense for businesses that already have programmers on the payroll, but it is important to remember that, in addition to the proven benefits of contracting out highly specialized work, bringing contract programmers on to help you get the most out of your software will save money in the long run. Companies like Canadian Measurement-Metrology in Mississauga, Ontario, can provide experienced application engineers with a deep knowledge of the latest software who can also create measurement solutions that are tailored to your particular needs.

If you’ve already outfitted your shop floor with new or used CMM equipment and have paid for state-of-the-art PC-DMIS or Polyworks software, why not maximize its potential by bringing in experts who can help your team get the most out of their equipment? Contract metrology programmers can work with your team to provide the best measurement solutions for your factory, and the best possible quality of products for your clients.
