Coordinate measuring machine (CMM) programmers create inspection programs for coordinate measuring machines, devices that measures objects' physical characteristics such as dimensions and other geometrical qualities. The machine is used during the manufacturing and assembly process, specifically during the automated production process. The CMM programmer’s responsibility is to ensure the machine is properly working through programming scripts and tests.
Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Operator and Programmer Tasks
Write or edit programs for precision machinery.
Ensure that precision machinery is in working condition and proprely calibrated.
Determine program requirements based on design and engineering requirements.
Operate precision machinery as needed.
