Zenith 3 CNC CMM

Making large, precision measurements both simple and affordable.

The Zenith 3 CNC CMM is the result of a design evolution of the award winning Zenith too range of machines, taking into account over 20 years of CMM design experience. Many of the design improvements revolve around the right leg of the machine, which has been modelled on the hugely successful Azimuth machine.
