Precision Coordinate Measuring Machine
A 'coordinate-measuring machine' (CMM) is a device for dimensional measuring. It is a machine that is used to move a measuring probe to obtain the coordinates of points on an object surface. Coupled with powerful software reverse engineering can be achieved and reproduction of components where drawings are not available.
Precision CAD / CAM Software
Coupled with the investment in CNC - computer controlled machinery, First Components Limited have also invested in the latest market leading CAD / CAM software. With products from Autodesk in the form of Auto CAD along with with specific packages from One CNC and Camteck for control over the CNC millers, Lathes and Wire erosion machines. To oversee the production operation environment PSL DataTrack provides a market leading fully integrated manufacturing system.
