Control 2022 in Stuttgart Germany for the latest in metrology and testing
Met Optix personnel visited the 35th annual Control Show in Stuttgart Germany in May 2022 after an absence of two years as a result of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Control whilst, as always vibrant and full of information and the latest trends in metrology, was noticeably smaller than usual, as expected, but the quality of the exhibits was outstanding.
AUSTECH is Australia’s premier advanced manufacturing and machine tool exhibition and will operate from 14th – 17th May 2019 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Met Optix will have on display on our Stand # 894 at this year’s AUSTECH exhibition the following products and technologies:
- COORD 3 ARES CMM 10.07.07 with the latest V7 CMM laser scanning system from Perception
- RPS Metrology EVO-6 portable measuring arm and Verisurf CAD/Measure inspection software
- Taylor Hobson INTRA contour and surface roughness measurement systems
- Any many other products.
Come along and meet the Team at our Stand to see the latest developments in metrology and testing products and discuss your measurement challenges or key requirements in the future in order to help improve productivity and product quality.
For more information or to make a time to visit us call us at any time on 0419 381 265.
Met Optix proudly exhibited a range of our latest products at the bi-annual AUSTECH exhibition in Melbourne in May 2017. Products on display included a six axis EVO-6 portable measuring arm from RPS Technology coupled with Versiurf software, a range of Surtronic portable surface roughness equipment from Taylor Hobson, portable torque wrenches and 600 data collector units from ASI Datamyte as well as a range of quality Swiss hand measuring tools from TESA Technology.
As well as the products on display from Met Optix we were also very excited to be able to introduce and display to the Australian market for the first time products from Italian-manufacturer – Scan-In-A-Box, a new low-cost entry-level structured light scanner as well as the Zortrax 3D printer from our specialist 3D scanning and printing business – 3D Scan & Print.
Visitors numbers to the exhibition were very impressive and the interest levels in our products on display and particularly the new Scan-In-A-Box products was very strong and a number of high quality sales leads were generated.
In visiting the annual Control Show in Stuttgart, Germany in April / May this year, the overriding theme around this huge exhibition was – metrology through technology. In other words, global manufacturers from around the world are embracing technology faster and with more vigour in order to gain strategic advantage with their quality improvement and productivity programs.
All of the huge global manufacturers were there again at Control – Hexagon Metrology, Zeiss, Mahr, Wenzal, Nikon, Mitutoyo and lots more. It was interesting to see first-hand the continuation of the trend of the large metrology groups like Hexagon and Zeiss acquiring the smaller boutique operations such as AICON 3D now part of Hexagon and Steinbichler now part of the Zeiss group. No doubt this trend will continue as these large groups are seeking to grow year on year – not just through organic growth but through acquisition and takeovers etc.
Also interesting to observe and to note that many of the smaller exhibitors from years gone by have now taken huge steps and with greater success have invested in larger and more sophisticated stands at Control – a real sign of the strength and the health of the manufacturing sector and the related metrology and testing industries.
