6-Axis Measuring Arm

PMT ALPHA Series, one revolutionary measuring arms family, has established a new standard for Portable 3D Measurement technology. It adopts the internal counterbalance system and equal-length arm design that is most suitable for on-site measurement, with simple and balanced structure, flexible operation, and bold innovation in details. Each PMT measuring arm passes rigorous tests including Extreme Temperature Cycling (-20℃~60℃) and Shock and Vibration Testing per International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC) Standard. In accordance with ISO10360-12, PMT measuring arm has passed strict accuracy verification in a bid to make sure accuracy, consistency, and reliability of measurements in a variety of environments.


PMT ALPHA P, this flagship 6-axis arm leads the way with its premium accuracy and best-in-class performance. It helps our customers take over the lead in quality control by providing a reliable product performance.


PMT ALPHA M, the reference standard 6-axis arm is the best choice for companies seeking for a robust, reliable factory or shop-floor inspection solution with an excellent price/performance ratio.


PMT ALPHA E, the arm with affordable price is for companies who pay attention to cost management. The reliability and operability of this arm enable manufacturers to well control quality and boost production of high-quality products.


PMT ALPHA EDU 6-Axis Measuring Arm is designed for academic education with the aim of providing optimized teaching methods for colleges at affordable prices. It is an opportunity for students to gain a good grasp of theories and applications about portable measurement technology, and help sharpen their competitive edge in the manufacturing or research field in future careers.

Product Inspection

1)On-line measurement: Unlike traditional methods, portable 3D measurement arm can be used in field measurement and performs an on-line dimensional inspection.

2)Design improvement: With its computer-aided inspection function, it can quickly identify deviations from the product with the original design so as to improve the design and crafts.

3)Rapid prototyping: Based on the existing products or partly using reverse method to achieve the design scheme.

4)Parts archiving: For those parts whose prototypes or drawings do not exist, we can archive them for future use.

In-process Inspection On The Shop Floor

1)On-site measurement: Without any special requirements for environments, it can be used on the shop floor to promptly detect product quality issues such as deformation, abrasion, etc. so as to reduce the rejection rate.

2)Complex workpiece inspection: In-progress inspection for different sizes of jigs and fixtures, tooling, platforms, automotive interior parts, pipe fittings, etc.

3)Online inspection: Different from traditional methods, PMT arm can achieve on-line or on-machine inspection with great flexibility and high performance at a great value in the course of production.

Management Optimization & Risk Control

1)Production process optimization: Obtain data by fully inspecting products in-process to help make management decisions scientifically.

2)Risk control: Through inspecting products directly on or at the machine producing them which helps to detect issues like deformation, abrasion, and mould and production crafts can be adjusted timely to reduce the risk of defective subsequent assembly or other defects.

Necessity & Urgency

1)Quality inspection: With growth of output, design alterations and new products launch, more and more measuring equipment is needed for quality assurance.

2)Thanks to its computer-aided inspection function, the new measuring arm can quickly identify deviations from the product with the original design so as to improve the design, crafts and quality.

3)Rapid inspection: Comparing to traditional manual methods or CMM, it allows users to significantly speed up their measurement work and helps detect problems early to reduce the rejection rate.

4)Quality control for supporting parts: Finding out errors between suppliers or outsourcing products and the original design in time in order to clarify the responsibilities.

5)Reverse engineering: Nowadays with customers ever-increasing demands, traditional methods are unable to explore any new products, in which case we should never give up the pursuit of more refined and higher quality products. Therefore, considering a stable and long-term development, a new measurement technology is urgently needed to improve this situation.
