Marposs (Auburn Hills, MI), which specializes in measurement, inspection and test technologies, has announced its real-time Remote Testing and Acceptance Service. The company says it’s enabling customers to participate in live testing, review and acceptance of their machines/gauges/applications without having to travel, enabling work to continue in an efficient manner while saving time and money.
“The manufacturing industry is often criticized for a lack of modernization,” said Matteo Zoin, Marposs, head of marketing and new market development. “With the pandemic preventing the ability to meet in-person, companies must adopt new technologies. We are living in a challenging time and to stay competitive requires aggressively moving into the digital space.”
Tests for North American customers are run at Marposs’ Technology Labs in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Fremont, California, or at the company’s headquarters in Europe. The sessions livestreamed through the Zoom Conference platform are supported by video cameras and wireless equipment to ensure a highly detailed and accurate experience. Customers can provide immediate feedback and any requested alterations can be made in real-time.
