Trimos new C-Line is the world’s first truly portable Coordinate Measuring Machines designed for the workshop. This product line is part of the new TRIMOS 3D product group.

Portable: At only 13,5 kg, the C-Line goes with you wherever you need it. No longer are you required to take the part to the CMM, the C-Line can be deployed directly in the manufacturing process.

Easy-to-Use: The C-Line is easy to operate using a portable PC. The concept of this product has been thought for optimal user experience and ease-of-use.

Software: The C-Line is delivered standard with the ControlCAT software, which allows you to perform many type of measurements: distance, circle, plane, line, point… To take full advantage of the performance of the C4, we advise the optional Aberlink software, 3D software offering the advantage of ease of use. Other measurement software are compatible: PolyWorks, CMM Manager, Verisurf etc.

Models: The C3, entry model of our new portable CMMs, has 3 axes motorized (X, C, Z). It allows basic 3D measurements. The C4 is the premium model of our new portable CMMs. It has 4 axes motorized. (X, C, Z, P). The C4 allows high performance measurements in 3D.
