The moving bridge design of this CMM offers the ideal cost-performance ratio with the undeniable benefit of the worktable integrated into the machine structure, making it the ideal solution for low measurement volumes.

Three moving elements are used in a Bridge-type CMM that moves isostatically along as many tracks that are parallel to one another.

The quill element, which moves vertically with regard to the head element, is where the measuring probe is attached. The latter moves horizontally in relation to the crosshead element, which moves horizontally in relation to the cast iron base plane and is supported by two uprights located at each end.

COORD3 Bridge type CMM has 4 models:


High-precision inspection of small and medium-sized parts using an economical high-performance CMM.

The open design of the Benchmark Offers great ergonomic benefits. A Quality control room or a production environment can accommodate its compact size.

A 2.5-micron accuracy is provided by the full BENCHMARK with air bearings. For fully automated inspection applications, a motorized probe head can be added. It comes equipped with a Renishaw touch probe.

Small workshops benefit most from using the BENCHMARK CMM.

Strong dimensional inspection performance for metrology applications in various fields.

ARES CMMs are shorter overall than the majority of CMM products on the market. To further lower the overall height by 100 mm (about 3.94 in), a low-profile support stand may also be offered.

ARES is especially well suited for inspection facilities with low ceilings because of this unique characteristic.

ARES CMMs are available in manual or CNC form; eventually, it is optional to upgrade manual units to a fully CNC version.

There are two performance levels available:

ARES: for basic applications.

ARES NT: for performances requiring more. A silicon carbide Z-axis column is a feature of ARES NT that improves the measurement platform’s overall stiffness. The entire suite of scanning technologies from Renishaw are utilized in this exceptional CMM system for high-precision metrology applications.

Features & Benefits:

  • Frame made of ultra-rigid alloy for optimal rigidity in scanning applications

  • High bearing clearance coefficient rigid air bearings
  • The Z-axis is counterbalanced pneumatically.
  • Dynamic signal processing is used with measurement scales of 0.1 micron free-fluctuation resolution.
  • For optimum performance, fully digital motion control with probe path fusion is used.
  • Hysteresis on all axes of the friction reducers is almost zero.
  • External vibrations are isolated by a passive vibration dampening device.
  • The measurement space is open to all sides.
  • 517 mm (about 1.7 ft)/sec maximum positioning speed
  • 1730 mm (about 5.68 ft)/sec2 is the maximum acceleration.

The universal family represents the latest generation of CMMS.

Ideal for both conventional point-to-point measurements and more sophisticated contact and laser scanning cycles. The UNIVERSAL series’ outstanding structural stability makes it especially well-suited for use with 5-axis scanning systems and for measuring gears and gear wheels.

The characteristics are specifically made to ease construction, cut down on expenses, and shorten maintenance times.

For the first time on the market, the COORD3 UNIVERSAL series combines wireless technology and the automated temperature correction system. The fully autonomous system dynamically corrects mistakes brought on by variations in the 16–26°C temperature range of the surrounding environment.

Additionally, distortions brought on by the deformation of the primary structure are prevented by using high-resolution optical scales (0.1 m) that are not attached to the substrate.

The UNIVERSAL series can be fitted with an environmental monitoring system to enable the installation of a CMM with excellent dynamic performance in production environments.

Features & Benefits:

  • Mechanically extremely stiff for maximum scanning accuracy.
  • Structure that reacts quickly to temperature changes in the surroundings.
  • Extruded aluminum alloy cross member was designed with CAD/FEA assistance to reduce inertial effects at maximum dynamics.
