WorkNC Opens Doors For Collet Amblard

WorkNC has opened the door to new markets for a manufacturer of precision machine components and the production of pre-assembled units.  

5 Axis Edgecam and Javelin Pave The Way For AI-Met's Nuclear Diversification

Five-axis machining, and full traceability of parts, are combining to help an oil and gas specialist diversify into the nuclear market.

Hydroelectric Turbine

Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 with SpatialAnalyzer

Based at Sion in the Swiss mountains, HYDRO Exploitation SA is a service provider that specialises in the operation of electrical installations and hydroelectric facilities.

Replacement Of The Stator In A Hydroelectric Plant Turbine

​The Francis Style hydroelectric turbines, in simple terms, are driven by water falling from a great height which turns the blades of an impeller at great speed, transforming potential energy into kinetic energy. The impeller is joined to a spindle by means of an axle. The spindle turns inside a stator transforming the kinetic energy of the impeller into electricity.

The Future of Energy

The Hexagon Metrology laser tracker inspects the construction of the huge magnets of a nuclear fusion reactor.

Laser Tracker opens door to New Business Areas

Entrepreneurial acting means setting the course for new business opportunities. In industrial companies, the success of such plans stands and falls with identifying the right equipment. That’s why Basque engineering company Ingemat added a Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 to their tools.

Handheld Probing Solution Keeps Wind Turbines Turning

Globally, wind power generation increased more than fivefold since the year 2000. With the global trend toward limiting CO2 emissions and numerous governmental programs subsidizing or financing wind power generation, its share of global power generation is set to experience substantial growth in the foreseeable future.

Hexagon Metrology Boosts Blade Production

The company C.M. Menegazzi was established in 1982 and is still led by its founder Umberto Menegazzi, who has been joined by sons Roberto and Luca, respectively responsible for the accounts/sales and technical areas of the business. The use of state-of-the-art design and production technologies has always been key to C.M. Menegazzi’s operations: in the early ‘80s its main business was the direct copymilling of aeronautic parts and turbine blades, as well as parts of small, medium and large moulds. Shortly afterwards, with the adoption of CAD/CAM systems, processes began to be based on mathematical models.

Inspection and Auto Inspection with The ROMER Absolute Arm

Four buildings covering a total surface area of 20,000 m², four assembly halls each measuring 1,200 m² sitting on a site covering 35,000 m²... The Gonzales group, founded in 1971, has forged a solid reputation through its know-how, flexibility and reactivity as well as the quality of the services it provides. A designer and manufacturer of top-quality industrial equipment for major national and international customers, the company has successfully developed its know-how and reached the very summit of technicality in its specific fields of activity which include, among others, mechanised welding; the welding of steel, stainless steel and aluminium; precision mechanics; and large-scale machining. With a wide range of activities, Gonzales is present in all the sectors of industry, such as the tyre industry, the aerospace industry, the electric and hydroelectric sectors, the railway industry, etc.

Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 Ensures Efficiency of Hydroelectric Power Stations

Vorarlberger Illwerke operates ten hydroelectric power stations in the Montafon alpine valley in Austrian state of Vorarlberg and produces valuable peak-load and regulating energy. The company regularly investigates the efficiency of its turbines so that the power of the water can be converted into electricity as efficiently as possible. The base data for these investigations are created using a laser tracker system from Leica Geosystems.

Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 for inspection of Large Volume Wind Energy Components

In industry sectors where work pieces are large and heavy, mobility is everything for a measurement system. When accuracy and easy handling are the other functional requirements, there is no way around a portable CMM. Spanish machining company Lakber came to this conclusion and uses a high-end Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 and a Leica T-Probe

Mobile measuring device from Hexagon Metrology Supports the Production of Electric Power Generators

We rely on energy for many purposes, and the fact is that natural energy resources are becoming ever scarcer. Renewable energy sources are worth investing in and supporting for the future, this is what DONAKO strives for as a manufacturer of electrical machine sub-assemblies, with world energy industry leaders among its clients. In its aim to produce perfected components and with its future-oriented outlook, DONAKO has decided to put its trust in a mobile measurement solution from Hexagon Metrology – the ROMER Absolute Arm. Thanks to this solution, improved quality of the production process has become a reality.

Portable Measuring Arm Ensures the Performance of Photovoltaic Modules

Europe‘s number 1 circuit board manufacturer, Austrian company AT&S, has developed a new type of solar module with a particularly high efficiency rating. A ROMER Absolute Arm is helping to make the most of the performance capabilities of the modules.

Probing Away Set-Up Times

Using Touch Probes and Software from M&H, Havlat in Zittau is able to significantly reduce set-up times and achieve secure, consistent manufacturing.

Scientists use 3D measuring technology to research production methods for metal components

Generally speaking, the city of Bremen is known for its famous Town Musicians. However, passionate engineers know that Distortion Engineering is the new brand of this Hanseatic City. The term was coined by the University of Bremen where in 2001 the special research programme 570 was created with the same name, which attracts funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG). The Bremen Institute for Metrology, Automation and Quality Science (BIMAQ) takes an active part in the programme. The Institute uses a Leitz Reference to try and find out the causes of distortion in typical automotive components. Another BIMAQ project is dedicated to wind power: it is intended that measurements of largevolume gear components provide valuable information for production optimisation.
