Retrofitting

Retrofitting
Transform the performance and capability of your CMM with an LK Retrofit

 

An upgrade to your existing coordinate measuring machine can provide many benefits without incurring the cost of purchasing a new machine. Benefits include:

 

Increased Productivity

By using the latest sensor technology and rapid programming software, a greater throughput can be achieved saving time and money.

Reduced Cost

Using state-of-the-art electronics and control systems, maintenance and support costs can be lowered due to the higher reliability and reduced servicing time.

Better Insights

The introduction of an LK non-contact laser scanner (VIVID SLK25) or a more efficient tactile probe system can provide a much higher level of measurement information giving you tighter control of your manufacturing processes.

Future Proofing

Confidence that your CMM will perform measurement tasks for today and in the future.

Compatibility Across Multiple Measuring Devices

Standardizing to a single measurement software on your manual and DCC CMMs plus portable arm CMMs can lead to a reduced training and support burden and allow a more flexible use of your engineers.
