Mapvision Absolute Measurement

So far, in-line measurement systems have been tethered to coordinate measurement machines (CMMs). From production line ramp-up to line adjustment verification for engineering change requests (ECRs), a round of CMM correlation studies has been a requirement. Even for stable production lines, the need for correlation checking has remained a constant. The dependence on CMMs has left the full benefits of in-line measurement undelivered – until now!

Replace CMM Correlation with CAD Referencing

With Mapvision Absolute Measurement, we introduce a CMM-free in-line inspection setup that uses CAD referencing instead of the traditional CMM correlation studies.

Just think about the flexibility you gain by eliminating your dependence on CMMs. And think about the possibilities such level of flexibility open in the manufacturing world!

You can create and deploy inspection programs in minutes without paying a visit to the CMM room and start adjusting your production immediately.

Change your parts every week? No problem. Ramp-up in a week without CMM? No problem. 30 variants in the same system? Not a problem at all.

You can deploy and manage all changes and updates only through a user interface and by using CAD files of the part as a reference.

Flexibility and digitalization. This is what Mapvision Absolute Measurement means in practice. Welcome to the new era of production without a CMM!


Removing the unnecessary CMM phase improves the reaction time needed for quality control. Thus, it expedites the ramp-up and adjustments of the manufacturing process.


Moving from CMM-measured reference parts to absolute 3D CAD model referencing and artefact-based validation removes the problem of finding the "ideal part" to use as a reference.


Easy programming enables measuring many different parts and variants in the same Mapvision inspection system.
