IMTMA Training Centre

Hands-on training in Operation of Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs)

Date : 21 to 25 May, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


In the modern manufacturing environment, process control and quality assurance depend increasingly on the performance of Co-ordinate measuring machines. Today CMMs have replaced traditional methods of inspection with gages and fixtures thus reducing the time and manpower required in quality control operations.
There is enormous demand for Trained / Skilled engineers for successful & meaningful handling inspection challenges. This can be achieved only if the CMM engineer possesses adequate engineering knowledge, Inspection skills and has a logical and analytical approach to fulfill the task.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a comprehensive course with Hands-on training in Co-ordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) on 21-25 May 2019 at Pune. This course will cover in detail about all the aspects a practicing CMM engineer requires to know for effective use of CMM for reliable measurement results. Hands-on training in CMM with live measurement exercises of industry components will be given more emphasis.

Focus Areas

 1) Introduction to CMM and Proper use of CMM / various types of CMM /Probes / Probe Heads /Styli etc. 

  •  Environmental conditions, specifications, their Importance and effect on measurements
  • Calibration of a CMM, Frequency & Methods
  • GD&T parameters in Engineering Drawing
  • Meaning of RFS, MMC and LMC conditions
  • Measurement of Form, Orientation, Location and Profile tolerances in CMM

2) Using CMM for Dimensional checking and validation

  • Configuring probes (Styli), Calibration with Master Sphere
  • Hands-on practice / Group exercises in measuring parts manually

3) User Interface – PCDMIS

  • Standard menus of the start up screen; Use of Edit, Graphics & Report windows.\
  • Setting up inspection plan of a component and Calibrating various probe combinations
  • Using Manual & Constructed features / Elements and other tools
  • Out put of Inspection report and interpreting reports
  • Programming and Using CMM, movements & precautions

4) Case Studies & Group Discussions

5) Hands – on practice and Group exercises on CMM
