  • Fowler Fusion Software
    The guiding philosophy behind Fowler Fusion is to make complex measurement easy. Fusion represents a powerful synthesis of innovative 3D precision measuring equipment, powered by user-friendly and feature-rich software....

  • The whole philosophy for Fowler FUSION is to make measurement easy. FUSION software has been written by engineers for engineers and sets the industry standard for simple-to-use software. Designed around a graphical interface, FUSION 3D can work in 2D or 3D, on manual or CNC CMMs and is equally at home when used with either touch, scanning or vision systems. It is easy to understand why FUSION has become the software of choice not only for FUSION, but for numerous other manufacturers of measuring devices around the world.


    FUSION 3D software is not only way ahead of its competition in being the industry standard for ‘easy-to-use’ software, but also has the depth of functionality to make it the choice for either occasional users or full-time inspection professionals.

  • Mark 2 -Manual/CNC : THE COMPLETE INSPECTION SYSTE
    Fast, accurate and reliable, the MARK 2 CMM comes in 4 different sizes with Y axis travel up to 1500mm. Available as either a manual machine or with full CNC control, it can be used with touch trigger probe, or continuous contact scanning probe....

  • The all aluminium bridge structure not only ensures that the Mark 2 has low inertia and hence high acceleration to get the job done quickly, but also that the temperature of the machine rapidly follows the temperature of the room, ideal when the CMM is not housed in a controlled environment. Temperature compensation in the software reports results as if they had been measured at 20°C/68°F.

    The standard high-tech granite and aluminium table, originally developed for the optics industry, provides fantastic natural damping of high frequency vibration and the granite Y rail allows pre-loading of the bridge air bearings in both directions for superior accuracy.

    Another unique feature of the MARK 2 is that manual machines can be easily upgraded to CNC at any point in the future, which is great if you are not sure of your requirement or perhaps can’t initially justify the additional cost of a CNC machine.

    Because of Fowler FUSION'S fully integrated manufacturing processes, the MARK 2 offers unbelievable value, but above all it is easy to use.
  • NEW zCAT 3 AXIS DCC CMM
    zCAT: the world's first truly portable DCC Coordinate Measuring Machine
    A REVOLUTIONARY SOLUTION TO A COMPLICATED PROBLEM
    ...

  • A revolutionary solution to a complicated problem

    Utilizing advanced technology, software, design and electronics, the zCAT is manufactured as a compact self-contained unit that is fundamentally different than existing CMM technology, design and operation. From initial equipment acquisition through set-up, training and maintenance, the zCAT offers significant cost reductions without compromising measuring accuracy or performance.

    Easy-to-Use

    The zCAT is the easiest DCC CMM to use. Built with the intention of lowering the threshold of training needed to successfully operate and even program a DCC CMM, every component, from the mechanics to the software, has been examined for optimal user experience and ease of use.

    Programming

    Automate measuring processes, and gain accurate data time after time. The unique zCAT clutch seamlessly shifts from direct computer to manual control without the need for flipping switches or clicking buttons. Simply, move the probe manually, and the computer will remember and reproduce the movements for accurate, repeatable measurements. 

    Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.

    We manufacture the zCAT in the United States. From California to Massachusetts, we’re taking advantage of American ingenuity, drive, and passion to create a high quality product that will help advance the capabilities of those who use it.
