News & Events


What can I expect from a CMM Training day with Torus? What will be covered? Will you cover more bespoke needs? These are just some of the questions asked from people when enquiring about our CMM Training courses. Below our Lead Inspection Engineer, Dean Richardson, provides the answers…

Can you give me an overview of the CMM (metrology) Training courses that Torus offer?

Torus’ training syllabus covers all training levels from complete beginners to seasoned experts. Between ourselves and our approved suppliers we cover the main CMM & Arm software packages (PCDMIS, MCosmos, Power Inspect, CAM2, Geomagic) 

If training is carried out at Torus, we encourage our trainees to bring their own parts, which can be used to customise the later topics to the specific inspection requirements of their components. 

Can I train by myself, or do I need to be part of a group?

We offer both group CMM training and individual training days.

Do I need to come to you?

No, our CMM trainers can travel to any location in the UK, providing you have access to a CMM or Arm. 

What can I expect from a typical CMM training day?

Day 1 – Introductions, gain insight into our trainee’s industry and training needs.

Day 2 – 4 – Throughout the course the trainer will demonstrate and explain each topic step by step, the trainees will then have the opportunity to get hands on and ask any questions along the way. Each day there will be a short recap of the previous day’s topics. 

If you complete your training course at Torus’ UKAS lab facility you will be treated to a locally sourced buffet lunch and unlimited tea and coffee. 

Will I receive a certificate after I have completed the course?

Yes, upon completion of the course all trainees will be issued with a certificate.
