Alphacam “Provides The Line Of Least Resistance” For Solid Timber Specialist, Woodbase Joiners

The combination of Alphacam’s parametric function and its ability to drive 5-axis routers is the way forward for a company focusing on high end solid timber joinery.

Edgecam Makes Food Industry Scrolling Kits A Piece Of Cake

A long-established Newbury-based engineering subcontractor has invested in a DMC machining centre and Edgecam software in order to win long-term new business from a food company. Engineering Solutions & Supply Ltd were asked to manufacture complete kits of tooling to ensure that glass jars were in the right position at the right time on a conveyor system, to be filled with food products. It included feed scrolls and the associated base plates, base clamps, star heels and centre guides.

Under high pressure Stein-Moser Adjusts Waterjet Cutting System Using Laser Tracker

Quality is everything at waterjet cutting machine manufacturer Stein-Moser. Therefore a highly efficient Leica Absolute Tracker is used during the assembly and checking of the machines.

The ROMER Absolute Arm Measuring Device Ensures the Highest Quality of Modern Trams

Solaris - an ambassador of the Polish industry and its unquestionable symbol, a pioneer in its industry, currently recognised by millions of Poles who use public transport services, the manufacturer of state-of-the-art buses and trolleybuses, quite recently also invested in the manufacturing of trams. Solaris buses are known not only in Poland, but also in 24 European countries and in the United Arab Emirates. The Solaris logo, a green dachshund, represents the key features of their products: length, low floor and environmentally friendly characteristics. The ROMER Absolute Arm, a measuring machine from Hexagon Metrology, guarantees the highest quality of Solaris tram components.

Retro But Fit

How can existing machines be kept up to current standards against the background of increasing quality assurance requirements? The solution is a retrofit. Thöni Manufacturing GmbH shows you how. Almost two decades old, its coordinate measuring machine recently made the grade on an improvement course thanks to a modernisation package from Hexagon Metrology.

Lifelong Absolute Accuracy For Industrial Robots

High speed tracking is one of the most stringent requirements for robot control, machine guidance and Metrology Assisted Assembly. Robot calibration, accuracy improvement of drilling machines or automation of wingto-body assembly are just some examples of machine control applications of Leica Laser Trackers.

3D Coordinate Measuring Machines ensure the form of bathroom taps

In Turkey they relax in a hammam. The Japanese freshen up in an ofuro. In lifestyle magazines it is increasingly considered as an individual wellness oasis - we are of course talking about the bathroom. For over 100 years, Hansgrohe AG (www.hansgrohe.com) have made their contribution all over the world to the bathing culture with taps, mixers and showers that present the water the way it deserves. Behind the elegant, award-winning products are well-known designers, sophisticated technologies, the passion for water and the desire for innovation. And two DEA GLOBAL coordinate measuring machines as well. At the company headquarters in Schiltach, Germany, Hansgrohe keeps watch over form and function of bathroom taps, mixers and showers with the help of these 3D measuring machines.

Automated Inspection for the Commuters Choice in Personal Transport

Owners of Brompton’s don’t just own a bicycle; they own a product which through its designs and innovations is built to last. The ability to fold the bike into a compact unit which can easily be taken on public transport is the fundamental element of its design. With their commitment to excellence and the high quality expected by its customers the company has decided that now is the right time to invest in twenty first century measurement equipment in the form of a DEA GLOBAL Performance coordinate measuring machine (CMM).

Burr-Free First Time

Company Vorwerk check mould inserts and slides while still clamped on the machine tool using m&h’s touch probes and 3D Form Inspect software. A mould manufactured this way, with two sets of ten slides, was burr-free first time and released for volume production after the very first sample.

Economical Quality for All

By implementing a server licence for their m&h measuring software, Geberit has standardised the software of three plants in two countries. This has made the same functions available to all the people involved. The objective was to harmonise manufacturing equipment throughout all plants, make better use of licences within the group and reduce upkeep and maintenance expenses.

High-precision inspection for the European Extremely Large Telescope E-ELT

The race is on for who will manufacture 1,000 mirrors for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). Cranfield University in the UK has begun work on producing seven of the mirror segments for ‘the world’s biggest eye on the sky’ with the aid of high accuracy measurement systems from Hexagon Metrology. Built by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) the E-ELT, a ground-based telescope, will be 42m in diameter and made up of 1,000 hexagonal segments, each 1.5m wide and just 5cm thick. The E-ELT is four to five times larger and will gather 15 times more light than the largest optical telescopes operating today.

Maintenance Of Industrial Machine Installations

From the original and pioneering LTD-500 up to the modern and compact AT 401 Laser Trackers of Hexagon Metrology, allied to the great experience in advanced three dimensional measurements acquired throughout 14 years of history, Tecnimex do Brasil has become one of the major references in providing portable three dimensional metrology services in Latin America.

National Measurement Institute and Britiains Largest Applied Physics Organisation

Established at the turn of the twentieth century, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has been at the forefront of some of the world’s most important scientific breakthroughs including the development of radar and the automatic computer engine. Distinguished scientists such as Louis Essen, the inventor of the atomic clock, and Alan Turing, the computer science pioneer and Enigma machine codebreaker, spent parts of their careers working on projects at the NPL.

Portable Measuring Arm Helps Krayer GmbH Comply With ISO9001 Standards

The picturesque Lake Constance, located near the rim of the Alpine region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is home to Krayer GmbH, a middle-sized company of about 50 employees specializing in the production of 3D forming parts. The company has a rich history, dating back to 1884, when Franz-Joseph Krayer founded a modest fabrication shop in the lakeside town of Langenargen. The business has weathered two world wars and the turbulent hyper-inflation times in-between, only to see its pressing equipment completely confiscated by the allied occupying forces right after the end of WWII. However, the company rose from the ashes and expanded, quickly making up the losses.
