In this design, the CMM measuring arms are each mounted to a table that is in turn mounted on a large corresponding granite base. The measuring arms feature high-accuracy linear guide ways for the X-axis. The Y- and Z-axes feature finely tuned, preloaded roller bearings providing minimum friction and operational wear.
