CMM Part Inspection & 3D Measurement Services
AMG is a proud provider of portable CMM measurement and alignment services. These solutions are used for applications that require high-precision and small-scale scanning services for the tight-tolerance part measure, as well as CAD or GD&T comparisons and equipment alignment. Laser tracking services allow for measurement, alignment, inspection, documentation, and so much more. By utilizing innovative technology like the Faro laser Tracker, Axis Mechanical Group is able to ensure quality, precision, and safety surrounding a project.
This service has an extremely high precision (+-.0006 inches), and our CMM measurement and alignment services are compliant with Faro’s Best Practices. We use the Kinary System in order to check system accuracy and ensure quality.

AMG uses portable CMMs for multiple types of industrial alignments. Laser Tracker CMM alignment solutions can be used for larger equipment or machinery. Large presses and processing equipment are just a couple of examples of what can be done.
Large alignments can be done throughout multiple industries, including manufacturing, steel, and paper and pulp. The use of these services has evolved to applications that used to be less common, such as overhead cranes in power plants or R&D equipment in defense facilities.
Laser tracker measurements from CMMs can be extremely accurate. When in the right environment, their tolerance can be less than .0006 inches. CMM arms can be close in accuracy but are slightly less accurate, at around .001 inches.
With Pointing CompIT, we check the accuracy of the laser tracker in order to compensate if necessary. A Pointing Interim Test should be done before starting any new measurement job, as accuracy relies on this. Using backsight measurements can provide extra checks and redundancy.
Relying on the Best Practice Measurements with Faro, AMG has been able to provide the high-quality measurements and accuracy possible today.
Our part measurements are usually simple, highly accurate checks for both old and new parts. We can either verify dimensions or utilize GD&T comparisons. We are looking to expand our parts scans and modeling as demand grows. High-accuracy scanning arms can provide a digital point cloud for CAD modeling of information already collected.
CAD Comparisons And GD&T Comparisons
In addition to parts measurements, we can compare a scanned part with a CAD drawing. The software we use shows a high and low visualization with colors; high areas are red, and low areas are blue. CAD comparisons allow for the detection of changes to revisions, validation of accurate translations, the comparing of parts and points, and more.
The same information applies to GD&T comparisons, which are another part of portable CMM measurements.
Portable CMM FAQ
A Portable CMM is a portable coordinate measuring machine for collecting measurements from the complex surface geometry of an object. These machines can travel to the part for convenience and does not require a controlled environment to operate.
The Portable CMM uses a flexible measuring arm, or articulating arm, to collect geometrical measurements of a part. These arms have 6-7 axes that are coupled with rotary encoders and are equipped with compact linear or matrix array cameras to collect measurement retroflected data.
Although Portable CMMs are typically less accurate than a traditional CMM, Axis Mechanical Group’s Portable CMM assemblies offer efficiency and convenience while maintaining accuracy with measurements at +- .0006”.
Applications for portable CMMs are various, ranging from small-scale to larger projects across several industries. These include but are not limited to:
