Duplicate CMM Doubles Large Part Inspection Capacity

Trace-A-Matic Corporation has installed a new Hexagon Global Advantage CMM (coordinate measuring machine) in Plant 5 at their Brookfield, Wisconsin, USA location. The bridge-style CMM is optimized to measure large dimensional components having complex geometries with accuracy and speed. It is capable of gauging machined parts up to 2000 mm  x 3300 mm  x 1500 mm at a maximum weight of 6500 Kg pounds. The company has the identical CMM model in use at its Plant 2 facility. The new installation provides full-contact analog scanning capability and doubles large part inspection capacity to support the company’s Wisconsin operations.

“Large machined parts require large measurement solutions,”  Shawn Lang, Vice President of Engineering at Trace-A-Matic, said in a statement. “Quality, precision, and timely turnaround are a top priority. The newly added CMM provides capacity and makes our inspection operations even more efficient.”

Trace-A-Matic machines precision parts and assemblies for manufacturers in the aerospace, defense & military, food processing & pharmaceutical, heavy equipment, medical equipment, mining, oil & gas, power generation, transportation, and general industrial markets. The company’s state-of-the-art facilities use the latest CNC manufacturing technologies to produce complex and intricate components that meet or exceed the most critical tolerances. They machine parts from castings, weldments, forgings, tubing and bar stock that range in weight from 1 pound to 15,000 pounds.

Trace-A-Matic was established in 1968 and has evolved into a multi-facility operation with locations in Brookfield, Wisconsin and Houston, Texas serving the US and international customers.
