Mitutoyo America Corporation has announced a sales program based on “packaging” select CMMs and Vision systems with related equipment and service packages at no extra cost over the price of the base machine. By closely listening to the “cost of ownership” and “simplified buying” desires of metrology equipment buyers over the last 50 years, Mitutoyo’s new “Gold Care” program packages peripheral equipment and multi-year service packages (representing an overall $15,000+ savings) with a larger select group of these types of machines. The program and is available to US-based companies served by the company for a limited time period throughout the year.
Measuring machines covered in the program include: CNC CMMs: CRYSTA-Plus Series (400/500/700 Models); manual CMMs: CRYSTA-Apex S CNC Series (500/700/900/1200 Models); and Vision machines: QV-Apex Pro, QV-Apex TP Systems.
Every machine group offers a “Gold Care” package that includes:
· A “second year” extended warranty covering all labor and part costs (industry standard is one year)
· A two-year “Bronze” calibration agreement (A2LA accredited)
· A five-year technical phone support program covering all of the machine’s software needs (explaining specific product information and answering technical support questions)
· Mitutoyo’s MeasurLink® Pro Edition software package
· Workholding solutions:
o For CMMs: Mitutoyo’s Eco-Fix® fixturing system (a “plug and play” work-holding solution)
o For VISION MACHINES: Mitutoyo’s Opti-Fix® fixturing system (helps to facilitate workholding and faster throughput)
· Measurement devices:
o For CMMS: starter stylus kit (multiple probes and extensions for touch applications)
