The arm-free portable probing system designed for the shop floor

Our highly accurate portable CMM, the HandyPROBE has been designed for shop-floor use to increase the realiability and speed of your 3D measurement processes.


Accuracy and simplicity combined with portability

The HandyPROBE™ line-up is a portable optical CMM specifically designed for use on the shop floor. Thanks to its metrology-grade accuracy and dynamic referencing capabilities, the HandyPROBE delivers unmatched accuracy regardless of the measurement setup, instabilities of the environment and user experience level.


Without the requirements of a rigid measurement setup, the complete measuring system—the part, optical tracker, and wireless probe—can all be moved freely at any time during the measurement sequence.


The HandyPROBE is simply the best metrology solution for measuring geometrical entities on parts of any size directly on the production floor.

(1) HandyPROBE Next and HandyPROBE Next|Elite performance assessment (ISO 17025 accredited) is based on partial procedure per ISO 10360-12 standard: Probing size error (6.2) and Length error (6.4). Performance is assessed on traceable sphere and length artefacts.
(2) The volumetric accuracy of the system when using a MaxSHOT 3D cannot be superior to the default accuracy for a given model.
