The Z-CAT portable DCC CMM (direct computer control coordinate measuring machine) is the first of it's kind.
A revolutionary solution to a complicated CMM problem
Utilizing advanced technology, software, design and electronics, the zCAT is manufactured as a compact self-contained unit that is fundamentally different than existing CMM technology, design and operation. From initial equipment acquisition through set-up, training and maintenance, the Z-CAT portable DCC CMM offers significant cost reductions without compromising measuring accuracy or performance.
Z-CAT is Easy-to-Use
The zCAT is the easiest DCC CMM to use. Built with the intention of lowering the threshold of training needed to successfully operate and even program a DCC CMM, every component, from the mechanics to the software, has been examined for optimal user experience and ease of use.
Z-CAT portable DCC CMM
At only 13,6 kg, the zCAT conveniently goes with you wherever you need it. No longer are you required to take the part to the CMM; from a surface plate, to a table on the shop floor or on a large part itself, the zCat can be deployed directly in the manufacturing process.
The Z-CAT portable DCC CMM ensures accuracy with an industry-standard probe system. Find comfort in knowing that easy-to-acquire, accurate results are measured by this reliable touch-trigger probe system. Whatever your measurement task, this probe system allows for the optimal stylus arrangement for accuracy.
