Gaining speed without compromise – Compass technology delivers high-speed scanning while maintaining accuracy, improving measurement cycle times.


Compass technology keeps your CMM on course, reducing vibration for scanning performance that is straight and true even at high speeds. Acting like a shock absorber, it enables you to run faster scanning measurements and utilise the full potential of the machine with no loss of accuracy. Calibrated to your exact requirements, it gives the right combination of speed and performance whatever the operation.

One of the challenges to accurate high-speed scanning is the vibration effect of the CMM’s own movement during operation, which can impact results. With the patented Compass technology, a combination of hardware and firmware solutions, the system guarantees the ability to operate at the highest scanning speeds without compromising on accuracy. Compass enables faster scanning to drive productivity by reducing measurement cycle times.
