Definitions

The product segments included in the CMM market include:
Bridge-type Machine — this has a horizontal frame supported by two vertical columns. The machine arm is vertically suspended to measure the work piece.
Gantry-type Machine — this has housing that covers the entire structure, which must measured, inspected, or scanned. This machine is well suited for inspection applications in the automotive, aerospace, and heavy transportation industries.
Horizontal Arm Machine — This has flexible, vertical support and a horizontal arm that supports the probe.
Articulated Arm Machine — This is a portable device with articulated or multi-axis arms. The probes can be placed in different directions, which increases flexibility.

End-user industries are divided into the following segments:
Automotive — Includes the various industries involved in the automotive supply chain, such as component manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Aerospace and Defense — Includes aerospace, defense, and military applications, such as commercial and private aviation spacecraft, military, and defense labs.
Heavy Engineering and Machine Shops — Includes all energy, industrial manufacturing applications, and machine shop and metal fabrication work.
Others — Include electronics and medical devices.
