For the first time, a CMM manufacturer is offering a rental program for brand new CMMs with no long term purchase commitment.
"Rent2Measure(TM)...this may be the future of CMM measurement" says Keith Mills president of Xspect Solutions, Inc.
On February 24, 2009 Xspect Solutions, Inc., Wixom, Michigan, introduced a new rental program for new USA-produced Wenzel X-Orbit CMMs. "A rental program for CMMs is a 'first' for a U.S.-based CMM manufacturer" says Mills. "As the nature of U.S. manufacturing evolves in these uncertain times, equipment suppliers like Xspect Solutions have to be more creative in the way they market their products as well. As program schedules and quantities for parts suppliers shrink, the need for quality still remains very high. However, the ability to justify new capital equipment in support of these smaller programs has been reduced. For that reason, Xspect Solutions created the new Rent2Measure CMM rental program that allows manufacturers to have a new Wenzel X-Orbit 8.10.7 (800mm x 1000mm x 700mm) with a Renishaw PH10T/TP20 probe on their shop floor 6 to 36 months depending on the need. Additional features for the CMM include a complete suite of OpenDMIS® software, a MCR20 styli change rack, installation and CMM calibration program as well as three days of operator training for two operators. Also, we will provide the CMM XtraCare(TM) package which covers all breakdowns, OpenDMIS software upgrades as released, on-site Dell PC warranty, Renishaw probing warranty and help-desk applications and software support up to the maximum rental period of 36 months. The cost of a typical CMM under the Rent2Measure program is $2,975 per month."
Mills adds, "This program allows the user to have a new CMM with no long term purchase commitment. However, we do offer the user the ability to apply 65% of the rental payments to offset the purchase price of the CMM at any time during the term of the rental. The Rent2Measure program is available on any size CMM from the Wenzel X-Orbit range.
All Wenzel X-Orbit CMMs are designed and built with intrinsic accuracy and to exacting and rugged machine tool standards. It uses fine grain native-black granite producing thermal stability with outstanding dynamic performance, tremendous stiffness and natural vibration dampening. X-Orbit utilizes the industry standard Renishaw TP20 probing system and offers volumetric accuracy of 2.5 microns. The X-Orbit has a 3D measuring speed of 700 mm/sec with maximum acceleration of 2,000mm/sec2.
Xspect Solutions, Inc. headquartered in Wixom, Michigan, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wenzel GmbH of Germany. Xspect Solutions is the Number 3 supplier of both traditional CMMs and GMMs to the North American metrology market.
Wenzel GmbH manufacturers its products intrinsically accurate, negating the need for the huge error compensation files to achieve quoted accuracies which have become the norm for most manufacturers in past years. The black granite used by Wenzel is processed in-house at their impressive manufacturing facilities in Germany, not imported from China pre-finished...which in now the industry norm.
