General Manufacturing Realities

No two machining applications are the same. From standard lathes and milling machines to multiple access machines, cutters and lasers, each manufacturing tool comes with its own challenges for traceability and repeatability. What’s more, these measurements must be accurate, consistent and fast.

Efficiency Pressures

Faced with budgets and high demand, manufacturers attempt to reduce costs by speeding up production cycles and increasing throughput. However, this can lead to mistakes that have serious consequences, since error-ridden products require costly reproduction.

Industry Variations

Factory-floor applications of nearly every shape, size and space play a major role in countless industries. These industries measure diverse factors like roundness, roughness, hardness, length—or even multiple factors throughout the production process. Without an integrated, full-scope metrology solution, critical errors are possible.
