Automated Metrology

Automating measurement lowers operating costs, supports consistent throughput, improves lean manufacturing capabilities and improves product quality. Here are some different levels of metrology automation that might be a fit for your shop.

The LK 20.12.10 ceramic-bridge coordinate measuring machine and the smaller LK 8.7.6 CMM are housed in a temperature-controlled room held at 20 ± 1 deg C in the Laser Scanning contract inspection and reverse engineering facility. Parts delivered for inspection are acclimatized in the same room for 24 hours to reduce measurement uncertainty.

Under Contract: Automated CMM Operations
A manual inspection process using an arm is almost impossible to replicate, so shops hire Laser Scanning to run automated CMM programs for them that are highly repeatable.

Automated Optical CMM with Cobot
The optical µCMM from Bruker Alicona can measure extremely tight tolerances with high accuracy using a six-axis cobot arm to automatically pick, place, measure and sort (ok/not ok) parts in production.

Quality Management Software Moves Toward Quality 4.0
Inspection Manager from High QA automatically extracts GD&T requirements from 2D drawings and 3D models, digitizes prints with automatic ballooning, creates inspection plan reports and stores all the information and measurement tools in a centralized database.

Measurement Software for a Smarter Factory
PC-DMIS 2019 R2 measurement software from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence improves user convenience and productivity when intuitively creating measurement routines or executing them in the factory.
