Menu CMM Methodology



This video training series, book and resource package will guide you through the fundamentals of CMM measurement. It defines in detail the base information that is required when starting a career in metrology. This is information that is impossible to build into typical training courses, which are designed to teach delegates how to operate specific CMM software rather than focusing on the principles of measurement.
With five and a half hours of animated video, a 170-page book and a resource pack, the course takes you through how the different types of CMM and PCMM machines work and the basics of feature measurement. You will also learn about basic alignment principles before moving on to complex best-fit alignments and then the essentials of both programming and reporting. The course then concludes with three examples and frequently asked questions. All of this is delivered with no specific software bias so you learn how to measure, not how to use specific software.
Aimed at the beginner CMM Methodology - A Prerequisite to Coordinate Measuring Machine training is a great resource for the novice operator. It's also a repository for experienced programmers faced with a new measurement challenge or problem. The course will also prove invaluable for anybody who comes into contact with CMM, such as manufacturing and design engineers, helping them to understand the complexities of 3D measurement.
With all this new knowledge it will enable you to get the most out of a software-specific training course by allowing you to concentrate on how the software works and not how to measure. It will also help to level out the steep learning curve of operating and programming a CMM.

CMM Methodology - The video series

The CMM Methodology Video Training Series is a twenty-four video, five and a half hour training course. Building from the information provided in the book, and with an average watch time of approximately 15 minutes, each video starts with the new glossary terms contained within the video before the animation helps to clearly describe the topics discussed. Also included within the video training series are three end-of-section tests. These tests ensure the delegates have understood the main learning tasks from the videos.

CMM Methodology - The book

Now on its second edition, CMM Methodology - A Prerequisite to Coordinate Measuring Machine Training is written in a simple and easy to understand style and has over 200 detailed figures to help convey the learning objectives.
The book details all of the fundamentals of CMM measurement, including all of the detail that is impossible to fit into a software-specific training course. This information is invaluable when starting a career in metrology and essential to understand before continued learning.
Its user-friendly approach also makes the book a great resource on your return to work after completing software-specific training. The book also acts as a reference manual when faced with new situations or an inspection problem.
Glossary terms describing all the new terminology are included alongside "helping hand" sections within the text, exactly where you need them, ensuring you take full advantage of the lessons.

CMM Methodology - Support materials

To support your training with CMM Methodology - A Prerequisite to Coordinate Measuring Machine Training a package of CAD models, drawings and CAD models, that may be 3D printed, are available. These resources are taken from the examples demonstrated in the videos and book to support your learning. They will allow you to complete the training examples, step by step on you own measurement device and software, with the videos and book available to lock in your understanding of the fundamentals of measurement.
