Eley Metrology offers Gantry CMM measuring equipment that is custom built for measuring very large parts. Despite such a large measuring range, these machines can attain precision levels normally associated with much smaller 3D Coordinate Measuring Machines
Gantry CMM's machines have a frame structure raised on side supports enabling it to span over the object to be measured or scanned. Gantry machines are similar in construction to bridge style designs.
The gantry architecture is the ideal solution for all measurement applications for large-sized precision components, such as large diesel engines, jet engine components, aircraft wing structures, columns of printing machines, satellites, large machine tool parts etc.
