This part of ISO 10360 specifies the acceptance tests for verifying the performance of a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) used for measuring linear dimensions as stated by the manufacturer. It also specifies the reverification tests that enable the user to periodically reverify the performance of the CMM. The acceptance and reverification tests given in this part of ISO 10360 are applicable only to Cartesian CMMs using contacting probing systems of any type operating in the discrete-point probing mode. This part of ISO 10360 does not explicitly apply to: - non-Cartesian CMMs; however, parties may apply this part of ISO 10360 to non-Cartesian CMMs by mutual agreement; - CMMs using optical probing; however, parties may apply this approach to optical CMMs by mutual agreement. This part of ISO 10360 specifies performance requirements that can be assigned by the manufacturer or the user of a CMM, the manner of execution of the acceptance and reverification tests to demonstrate the stated requirements, rules for proving conformance, and applications for which the acceptance and reverification tests can be used.
