Industrial Metrology

Tactile and optical measurement of components

Industrial Metrology forms the basis for reliable product and process development and is an important component for process monitoring as well as first article inspections. Our technical equipment is constantly adapted to the high demands of our customer.

We use the most modern coordinate metrology technology for precise analysis of production parts, initial samples and serial components in any size and number.

With personnel and mechanical capacities, we are able to take on serial measurements with high numbers of pieces, conduct measurements of initial samples for the production part approval process (PPAP), draft nominal/actual comparisons, as well as surface, contour and commissioned measurements.

A special advantage is offered by multi-sensor scanning that uses different tactile or optical sensors as needed.

We also undertake the programming of the planned measurement path for the reliable execution of 3-D-coordinate measurements.

Project Path

Step 1
Identification of Actual State

After precisely recording and assessing the actual state, we set down the analysis strategy in dialogue with you.

Multi-shift operation assures an efficient and flexible execution of the entire project sequence.

Our service: On request, our fleet will pick up your components and return them.


Step 2
Analytical Services

  • Offline-programming
  • First Article Inspection
  • Nominal/Actual Comparison
  • Commissioned Measurements
  • Serial Production Measurements
  • Statistical Process Control (SPC)
  • Form and Position Measurement
  • Gear Measurement
  • Surface and Roughness Measurement
  • Contour Measurement

Step 3
Documentation

Perfect data in combination with excellent analytics build the foundation of our documentation.

The results are documented in such a way that you can draw the right conclusions for your quality assurance. As needed, we will consult and support you: via telephone, web meeting, remote support or in personal conversation.

The analysis reports can be added directly into your own process documentation.

Technical Equipment

To guarantee 3-D-coordinate metrology of the highest quality, we use various machines from Zeiss, Wenzel and Mitutoyo that are the technological top-of-the-line based on their specialized equipment. We are focusing on the market leaders GOM and ZEISS for the optical 3D component digitalization.

With multiple tactile and optical coordinate measuring machines that are equipped with multi-sensorial interfaces, as well as, contour- and surface- measuring systems, we have the right machine for every request: for large and small components of any materials and weight.

We even have the personnel and mechanical capacities for large numbers of pieces and serial production measurements.

The measurement rooms are fully climate-controlled for constant measurement results.
