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.
