Stationary Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs)

A coordinate measuring machine (CMM) provides the inspection accuracy needed for a wide variety of applications. When extreme accuracy is required, direct computer control (DCC) CMMs can be programmed for complex contours or hole locations to meet strict engineering tolerances. CMMs can be programmed to a blueprint or by using a 3D CAD model.

Portable Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs)

A portable CMM, also known as an “arm” (Faro/Romer) allow precise and accurate measurements in the field or on the shop floor. Automated programs can be used to direct the technician to follow a precise inspection path. Arms are also used to gather data for reverse engineering.

An eight foot arm can measure a part or complex tool to accuracy near .001”. By taking the arm to the part or tool, inspectors can quickly determine if the part geometry meets engineering requirements.

Laser Tracker

A laser tracker (Faro/Leica) is also portable and can be used to measure large scale parts. Surfaces or hole locations can be measured on components from 5 feet to 100 feet with accuracy of .0005”¬ .002” in a stable environment. Laser trackers are used for building and validating complex fixtures and inspection tools, as well as reverse engineering on a large scale.

3D Laser Scanner

A 3D laser scanner (Creaform) is a portable, handheld inspection device used to quickly map out the complete part or tool geometry for inspection or to reverse engineer for rapid prototyping.

3D laser scanners can capture precise geometry of a vehicle, for instance, in a few hours with accuracy of about .001″-.004″. The laser scanner produces a 3D mesh that can be compared against a CAD model for inspection or turned into a surface or solid model for many downstream applications.

Detailed inspection reports can be customized or automatically generated by software used with all measuring tools.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

The Phase II UTG-2800 allows our team to measure accurately and quickly any metal or nonmetallic materials with top/bottom surfaces that are parallel. The instrument can be calibrated to output useful measurements once material type is accounted for.
