Mitutoyo America Corp. has a new sales program based on “packaging” select coordinate measuring machines (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 is available to US-based companies served by Mitutoyo America for a limited time period throughout the year.

“The US marketplace has recognized Mitutoyo as the leader in metrology technology for decades,” states Matt Dye, Mitutoyo America’s vice president of Measuring Instrument Sales. “In conjunction with this being our golden anniversary, we’re offering this packaged-pricing promotion as a thank you to industry. Because we’re closely listening to the needs of our technology buyers, this ‘Gold Care’ program allows us to refocus on simplifying how the buying process works, as well as addressing the true 'cost of ownership' issues."

Measuring machines included in this program include:
•    CNC CMMs: CRYSTA-Plus Series (400/500/700 Models)
•    Manual CMMs: CRYSTA-Apex S CNC Series (500/700/900/1200 Models)
