At centre is the probe head, and at right is the camera, of a coordinate measurement machine (CMM). Machines like this are capable of accurate 3D measurements of complex, precision-engineered components. This machine, the Zeiss F25 model, uses both a touch-sensitive probe and an optical probe, which are both located on a single probe head. Photographed at the National Physical Laboratory, in Teddington, UK.
