Handheld Quality Assurance: The Latest Metals Identification Trend

Not only does incorrect material impact metal fabrication and final finish processes that delay job delivery, it can place your shop at risk to premature component failure and potential disaster in mission critical applications. But now there is a new way for shops to effectively identify alloy grade, confirm elemental composition, and further streamline metals verification for greater quality control and assurance.

One Step Closer to the Factory of the Future

As the Factory of the Future learns how to manufacture parts as seamlessly as possible, portable metrology is making major inroads for machine control in large robots used for assembly operations that previously involved very expensive fixed tooling, multiple operators, and many days to accomplish these tasks. 

Cutting Through Surface Noise: Easy Cylinder Head Inspection

This high-intensity, multidirectional lighting camera technology makes easy imaging of challenging part features on machined heads to provide a clear advantage for this automotive supplier.

Under the Radar

With a need to focus on monitoring process quality during the manufacturing process, this laser radar system provides a unique alternative to the shortcomings of the traditional inspection methods.

Never Too Dense

Advanced scanning technology can now perform 3D analysis of a scanned turbine blade, automatic pour porosity volume analysis on an aluminum casting, 3D measurements with nominal-actual CAD comparisons on a machined aluminum cylinder head – and more.
