There are several things a buyer needs to consider when purchasing a used Coordinate Measuring Machine, or CMM, and especially in regards to warranty. When you buy a new CMM you get the manufacturer’s warranty, just as you would when you buy a new automobile. A used CMM machine can cost substantially less than the purchase of a new one, but the buyer bears certain risks just as one would with a used car.
When CMMXYZ buys a used coordinate measuring machine at auction, or gets it on trade, we completely overhaul it. We look at the key characteristics of the CMM and make sure all measuring components are fully functional, or, if we determine they may not last in the field, we replace them. Airlines, air bearings and motors are all evaluated to assure proper functioning.
When a machine leaves our building, it is considered refurbished and essentially recertified.
The standard warranty we offer on any used machine is a 30-day money-back, repair or replace, at our cost, warranty. A new CMM machine would come with a 12-month warranty on hardware and software. Buyers who choose to buy used, may also upgrade to a one-year warranty.

We offer everything that an original equipment manufacturer offers with a new machine and at a substantial savings for the end user.
