Subcontract CMM programming services

The positive impact an experienced and knowledgeable CMM programmer can have on your business is immeasurable. Providing optimal inspection programmes that result in a clear and concise report on your product, can make a real difference to the efficiency of your operation. Our sub-contract CMM programming service provides this benefit.

Whether you’re experiencing time, labour, expertise or financial constraints, AB Technology offers a bespoke CMM programming service which enables you to meet the most ambitious of production schedules and quality objectives. Our expert understanding of the measurement equipment, software, dimensioning, GD&T and manufacturing, enables us to write CMM programs for wide range of applications and quality standards.

Specialist CMM Programmes made for efficiency and maintainability

From one-off inspections to volume production, we use advanced programming skills and the latest CMM programming software to create efficient and robust CMM programs that ensure that you achieve the precision-measurement results you need. We de-risk your manufacturing timeline by writing the CMM inspection programme ahead of time using our offline programming expertise.

Once the component has been manufactured, just execute the pre-written program for guaranteed trouble-free measurement.  Simply provide us with a marked-up drawing and CAD model and leave it in our capable hands. Alternatively, if you have the component available we can create and prove the CMM measurement at our facility, prior to delivery to your site.

Delivering excellence into your inspection facility

Having already used our offline programming and simulation software to create and optimise your CMM measurement program and agree the reporting format with you, let us assist with commissioning the measurement program. We can prove out the measurement program at AB Technology’s inspection facility on one of our UKAS calibrated CMMs, or visit your site and commission the program directly on your own coordinate measuring machine. Finally let us demonstrate the robustness and quality of the measurement program with a reproducibility and repeatability study (Gauge R&R) or Measurement System Analysis to IS0 13003 (MSA).
