How often should I have my portable arm calibrated?

At a minimum, it is wise to have your portable arm calibrated once annually. In cases where you're involved in high-tolerance work, or the arm is receiving a lot of abuse and being transported from plant-to- plant, we would recommend, perhaps, every 6 months.  Here at CMMXYZ we are primarily a ROMER portable arm service center for both tactile and scanning arms. We also can calibrate all brands of portable/articulating arms (both Faro and ROMER included) our fully certified ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab is your guarantee of a professional job.

It is essential to understand that a portable arm needs more scrutiny than a coordinate measuring machine. A coordinate measuring machine stays in one spot while a portable arm, by nature portable, is moved throughout a factory. It's assembled, disassembled, put on fixtures and put on surface plates. Generally speaking, it receives a lot more abuse than a coordinate measuring machine because it's used manually.

We have the capability to perform B89.4.22-2004(R 2019) calibration on both 6 and 7 axis portable arms.

We are an ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited lab, as well as ISO 9001 registered. Turnaround time for a portable arm average between 36 to 48 hours.
