CheckMate CMM Language Translator is a product that can read Native and DMIS CMM Programming languages, convert approximately 80% or better to one of many CMM native and DMIS flavoured output programs.  

Most recently, Origin announced revised pricing for the range of inspection software translators.  The new cost will allow the end user to pay as needed.  The revised cost structure will allow everyone to use these time saving tools to transfer inspection programs between various manufacturers CMM’s.  Origin has developed translators for virtually every inspection software available.
