CMM-manager supports tactile measurements using both manual and CNC CMMs as well as portable CMMs, such as an articulated arm and a K-Series Optical CMM. It is a highly intuitive and easy-to-use metrology software for inspection tasks at the shop floor covering a wide range of measurement volumes.

Renishaw PH20 Probing- supports triples CMM productivity
PH20 probe head support in CMM-Manager for Windows 7 drives fast, infinite, rotary positioning for high-speed point measurement with minimum CMM movement. The probe head brings five-axis inspection capability to smaller CMMs by optimizing the working volume
of the measurement platform, increasing touch-trigger CMM inspection throughput up to three times.

Graphic Reporting
for example, the operator simply drags the appropriate item from the report database tree to the graphics report window. The software automatically generates inspection reports that serve as digital communication tools, graphically highlighting critical dimensions and point deviations.

Leap frogging
Extend measurement volume for portable measurement. In case the workpiece exceeds the available working volume, CMM-Manager supports moving or flipping the work piece during the measurement process. This function enables a portable arm operator to measure workpieces larger than the working volume of the measurement system.
