The move toward Industry 4.0 drives a new trend in smart factory infrastructure. Manufacturers are transiting to smart connected factories and extending Industrial IoT ecosystems across factories, plants, and supply chains. Efficient and flexible data analysis are critical for production systems and plant assets. As the trend of Industry 4.0 accelerates, metrology and quality control need to keep up with the latest digital trend. Coordinate measuring machines are critical machines in manufacturing process, which captures geometric measurements or surface conditions of a workpiece. Continued technology advancements now enable coordinate measuring machines to be integrated into the shop floor and interoperate with other inspection technologies throughout the manufacturing process.
