Helmel is a vertically integrated manufacturer with most of our key operations within our Niagara Falls, New York, headquarters. Designs, prototypes, machining, grinding, welding, painting, assembly, testing, calibration, sales, training and ongoing support are all handled internally. We have enjoyed a multi-decade relationship with most of our suppliers for components of our CMM systems as well.




The Phoenix is made for harsh environments, with well-placed covers that prevent temperature shock. Its steel measuring scales on metal structures assure uniform expansion.The Phoenix CMM incorporates all the time-proven features of its “big brother”, the Microstar: hardened precision-ground ways, dual beam bridge with reliable V-and-Flat bearing arrangement and intrinsic accuracy. The latter is very important to reliably retain accuracy over time and reduce calibration cost. The Phoenix comes equipped with a full granite base and ergonomic stand.* See options for choice of probes. Installation and training are required.


Reliable CMM for shop floor and lab.

Our Microstar series of CMMs covers a wider size range from medium to large. These versatile units can be used in the lab or in the shop. The ways, bearings, scales and motors are shielded and guarded against harsh environments. All are available with a range of probe systems and software choices.

Shaft Measurement Machine

Helmel American-made Shaft Measuring Machines (SMM) deliver precise dimensional measurement of manufactured shaft-like products in a horizontal format. Checkmaster and Axium brands cover a range of shafts to 60” length and 12” diameter. Checkmaster provides 1 or 2 axes and is manually operated using hard probes. Axium is a 3 or 4 axis automatic Shaft Measuring system  Renishaw CMM Touch probes and scanning probes are supported.
