Mitutoyo America Corp., Aurora, Ill., announces a new program that allows users to “package” certain coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and vision systems with related equipment and service packages at no extra cost over the base price of the machine, representing an overall savings of more than $15,000. The program is available to U.S.-based companies for a limited time period throughout the year. Machines included in this program include:
•CNC CMMs: Crysta-Plus series (400/500/700 models).

Every machine group offers a “Gold Care” package that includes a second-year extended warranty covering all labor and part costs (industry standard is one year); a two-year calibration agreement (A2LA Accredited); five-year technical phone support covering all of the machine’s software; Mitutoyo’s MeasurLink Pro Edition software package; and workholding/fixturing solutions (Eco-Fix for CMMs, Opti-Fix for vision machines). The package also offers a starter stylus kit for CMMs and vision systems with touch probes.
