Is anyone currently using a portable CMMs (e.g. Faro, Romer, etc.)?
I am currently looking into the possibility of using a "portable", articulating arm CMM. I will have a rep from Faro demonstrating the Faro Gage Plus on Monday the 16th, but am interested in feedback from users of any of the several manufacturers and varieties.
We are manufacturing electronics controls and our largest item will be a heatsink of approximately 8"x9"x4", our smallest will be some small relays of approximately .25"x.25"x.5". We currently do not have the controlled facilities for a large CMM, so any device we purchase will have to be used in a production environment (~72 degrees F +/- 5 degrees, w/ ~ 50% humidity =/- 20%).
Any thoughts or recommendations?
