Metrology products play an important role in production helping to assure product quality and conformance to specifications.
Requirements in the Manufacture
There is a huge array of metrology products used in production from simple micrometer and calipers to 3D surface inspection systems and everything in between.
Ket products include
- Hand-measuring tools
- Height gauges
- Portable arm CMMs
Here there is a need for speed and efficiency with any measurement processes undertaken with competitiveness and the ability to meet the challenges of export markets is always a key driver of the uptake of technology.
Measurement equipment employed in production needs to be easy to use, easy to maintain, and highly productive.
Industry requires a whole range of measuring equipment in order to assure quality and enhance productivity.
Sheet metal product producers need fast and reliable measurement techniques. The Planar system is the fastest way to inspect 2D sheet metal parts.
Products such as the Leica 3D Disto are helping renovators, kitchen installers and other building contractors with these types of tasks – saving the industry time and money.
Metrology products are used extensively across the industry. Here we detail of few of the most common applications using dimensional measurement systems.
High-speed measurement of complex 3D components
The mainstay for measuring complex 3D components in industry for the last 20 to 30 years has been the coordinate measuring machine or CMM.
These days with full CNC and DCC-controlled CMM systems coupled with high-technology motorized probe heads touch-trigger probing systems and excellent software automatic CMMs are now becoming the norm. The latest trends are steering the industry towards the use of multiple sensors on CMMs such as vision systems and laser scanning heads in order to gain maximum efficiency from the measurement system.
2D dimensional measurement an inspection
The use of micrometres and vernier calipers has been widespread in industry for many years now. However, the uptake of new digital technology with these instruments as well as IP67 coolant protection and digital output for SPC reporting is now starting to become the way of the future for all manufacturers. The TESA range from Switzerland is an extensive range of hand-measuring tools and height gauges that enables industry to assure and have total confidence in their product quality.
