Retrofitting for the Future Xspect Solutions CMM upgrades
Xspect Solutions CMM Upgrades
Many coordinate measuring machines (CMM) in operation today don’t meet the needs of modern quality standards and production requirements, requiring manufacturers to either update their existing machinery or buy brand-new devices. Either way, it can be an expensive proposition. This was the problem faced by Standard Die Supply, an Indianapolis, Indiana, designer and builder of die sets, mold bases and mold components, as well as a supplier of die supplies. The company’s Sheffield Summit 115 CMM, which it purchased in 2001, was not working properly and needed some serious upgrading and retrofitting.
After a lengthy search for qualified software companies that specialized in the kind of issues that Standard Die Supply faced, the company selected Xspect Solutions Inc., based in Wixom, Michigan, to help it update and retrofit its problematic CMM. Xspect Solutions is the third-largest CMM supplier to the North American metrology market and a distributor of Wenzel metrology products.
