Removing the “Programming” from Part Inspection Programs

Production bottlenecks happen. Picture a funnel filled with small pebbles. When the pebbles enter the neck of the funnel, they jam together and very few escape. Just like the pebbles in a funnel, when one production station produces more than a subsequent station,...

Deciding Between a Non-Contact Metrology Platform and a Traditional CMM

Understanding the features of a non-contact metrology platform versus a traditional contact coordinate measuring machine (CMM) can help manufacturers choose the right equipment for inspection. By investing in the right inspection technology, manufacturers can improve...

Speed Wins in Contact vs. Non-Contact Surface Profiling

In surface morphology inspection, non-contact optical methodologies provide the same measurement results as a conventional contact profiler, but in a fraction of time. ​Surface finish quality matters in many industries, especially when consumer health and costly...

Benefits of Consolidating Metrology Operations into One System

Automated metrology platforms not only ensure high quality finished goods, these high speed solutions also lower total cost per part by consolidating multiple metrology operations into one system. ​High volume part manufacturers often have diverse process flows, and...
