  • Best place to purchase

    Our company has an older cnc cmm. The software that came with it is outdated and we would like to upgrade. What reseller would you guys recommend for a Pc-Dmis retrofit?

    The closer to you the better. I'd recommend going to anyone other than B&S dirrectly that way when it comes time to get service you can go to who you bought it from. If you buy from B&S you don't get service until you 30th machine purchase.

        Our main concern with purchasing the software is the price. I would like to find a reseller that could give us the best price and service around.

          That is usually "fixed" by Hexagon. Nothing like finding a competitive product to make them take notice though.

              There is a slight learning curve with the DEMON. How old & what kind is your cmm. There could be retrofitting involved $$$$$. Alot more then just buying software, which is $$$$$.

                depending on your machine you may have to upgrade your controller and that together with the software can be quite expensive ($40,000-$60,000).

                      Not at all

                      If you let me know your City and State, I'll hook you up with a Sales Professional that will guide you through what will be needed to upgrade your machine.
