Headed Straight for Meaningful Results


All-Round Software for Dimensional Metrology


Your software for coordinate measuring machines: ZEISS CALYPSO measures geometrical elements simply, quickly and reliably. Just click the desired features to configure inspection plans. Combined with ZEISS measuring systems and sensors, you will have a powerful one-stop system. The software will also adjust to your demands: Due to numerous optional add-ons, ZEISS CALYPSO also offers the right tools for special requirements.


ZEISS CALYPSO enables you to combine tactile, optical and multi-sensor coordinate measuring machines as well as roughness sensors by ZEISS in a single inspection plan.


Create inspection plans with just a few simple clicks and without any programming skills. ZEISS CALYPSO is programmed directly at the workpiece or graphically at the CAD design.


Customizable according to your requirements: different users, different fields of application


Optional add-ons allow you to create and store entire CNC inspection plans on a remote workstation.


The software delivers the results

Combined with ZEISS CALYPSO, the ZEISS coordinate measuring machines tap their full potential. Optimize your quality control: The software supports you before, during and after the measurement. Measure and analyze your workpieces with all sorts of different functions and get the best out of your coordinate measuring machine.
