The Advantages of Excedr’s CMM Machine Leasing Program:
- Eliminates the upfront cost of purchasing equipment by spreading its cost over time
- Minimizes equipment downtime with included complete repair coverage and preventive maintenance
- Takes advantage of potentially 100% tax deductible* payments, providing you significant cash-savings
- Expedites the administrative work needed for instrument procurement and logistics
- Conserves working capital, enabling you to reinvest in your core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)
- Accommodates all manufacturer and model preferences
*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.
The coordinate measuring machine (CMM) has made dimensional inspection more accurate, efficient, and flexible, all while streamlining measurement and inspection processes through automation, superb design, and the use of computers and software.
A typical CMM can be categorized as an optical CMM or multi sensor CMM. These models are commonly used to measure the geometry of an object along three separate axes using various types of touch probes that collect a series of precisely measured points on the surface of an object. However, there are other CMM models, including bridge, shop floor, gantry, and horizontal arm CMMs, all of which serve distinct purposes.
CMMs can provide highly-detailed and accurate level of inspection that ensures specifications are met and all measurements are within the required tolerances, making them highly useful in quality assurance (QA), quality control (QC), inspection, assembly, and much more.
Besides inspection and QA/QC, CMMs can also be used for other applications, including reverse engineering , where a 3D model of an existing part is created for use in 3D computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), or other software, using measurement data acquired from the existing part.. This can be useful in duplicating a part or determining whether any mistakes were made during the manufacturing process.
With the increase in automation and software-based technology, automated coordinate measuring machines are becoming more and more essential in machine shops, metrology labs, and a number of industries, including the aerospace and defense, automotive, medical, heavy machinery, and energy and power industries.
CMM Types, Configurations, & Probes
There are various types of coordinate measuring machines available, all of which serve different needs according to design, probe type, and software compatibility. However, they are all designed to provide high-accuracy measurements and

We Offer CNC CMM Leases to Fit Every Need
Procuring a shop floor CMM could give your machine shop an incredible advantage. However, you may not want to spend all your money in one place. Leasing with Excedr spreads those costs out over time, and greatly reduces the upfront costs of equipment procurement.
If you’re interested in leasing a portable or stationary coordinate measuring machine through Excedr, simply request a lease estimate or get in touch with us to learn more about our program and the costs of leasing.
If you’re thinking about procuring other types of measurement systems, such as 3D scanning systems, we can help. Besides CMMs, our leasing options include 3D measurement solutions: laser trackers, 3D laser scanners, and more.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
