Defense Industry Realities

Accurate production of defense applications, both mechanical and electronic, is life-critical. Not only are military operators at risk, but so is the success of the entire mission. Meeting stated standards for production quality and safety is a major challenge, but failing to do so can’t be an option.

Strict Governmental Standards

Defense manufacturers have no shortage of documented standards to adhere to: ISO 9001, AS9100 and its derivatives, ITAR compliant and more. The most accurate and reliable defense metrology solutions are needed to make sure that each component is fully in compliance.

Budgetary Restrictions

Strict budgets are nothing new to defense manufacturers, but that doesn’t mean standards can be allowed to slip. Manufacturers face a tough challenge: maintaining the highest level of accuracy, while still producing quickly, efficiently and at a lower overall cost.
