Artifacts

We're always looking for ways to bring quality dimensional metrology services and products to our customers. We offer several CMM artifacts used for validation and performance checks!

Our CMM Artifacts are designed for use as a system performance check with Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) and can also include a calibration certification (ISO 17025 Accredited Certification is also available). Validation artifacts provide evidence of software functionality and model-based capability for inspection software.

Artifact Includes:

  • Digital CMM data output text file
  • 3D CAD model in STEP-File Format
  • 3D measured point cloud in ASCII format
  • ISO 17025 accredited calibration (optional)
  • Customized options also available

Artifact size approx. 5.25” x 3.00” x .75” – Artifact weight approx. 0.5 lbs – Material: Aluminum 6061-T6

Geometry Includes:

  • Circles / Cylinders
  • Slots
  • Widths
  • Spheres
  • Cones
  • Profiles

A digital CMM data output is provided along with the measured point cloud and 3D CAD model for this part. This ensures that the measurement routine is the same as the one used to certify the artifact. MBD (Model-Based Definition) Zeiss Calypso, Hexagon PC-DMIS, or Mitutoyo MCOSMOS native program file is available.

CALIBRATION:
Measurement uncertainty for the calibrations is: (28 + 1.7L) µin / (0.71 + 0.0017L) µm (per our A2LA ISO 17025 Scope of Accreditation)

CERTIFICATION:
Calibration of the artifact is performed in accordance with applicable requirements, ISO 17025-2017, ANSI/NCSL Z540.3-2006 (R2013) and is traceable to the (N.I.S.T.) National Institute of Standards and Technology.
