Portable Measurement Capability Provides ‘On the Go’ Inspection Services
Based in Aurangabad city in Western India, the Measurewel Group is one of the leading professional providers of dimensional inspection, calibration and engineering services. Since its inception in 2007, the company has regularly provided services to a wide range of sectors including automotive, aerospace, power and energy, steel manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. Over the years, Measurewel has continually expanded its range of capabilities, allowing it to diversify and offer what is now a comprehensive ‘one-stop-shop’ for all kinds of measurement services.
Along with an in-house coordinate measuring machine (CMM) inspection facility, the company provides on-site inspection services using portable systems like measuring arms and laser trackers. Measurewel specialises in reverse engineering using 3D scanning and has a well-equipped NABL-certified calibration lab. They also have a technical training centre where metrology professionals can learn more about the latest technology and software.
“We are three directors and we came together in 2007 to start Measurewel Technovision Pvt Ltd here in Aurangabad,” explains Measurewel CEO Suhas Bhoge. “We have more than 18 years’ experience in operations engineering, manufacturing and quality departments. Initially we started off with a calibration lab and later added a stationary CMM. Through 2013, the business continued to grow with just two machines. At that time, we were the only metrology services provider in the city and with our continued expertise and excellence, Measurewel’s location is now called the Metrology Park.”
“At Measurewel, it’s not just about inspection; we have an interest in our customer’s success. Using the latest inspection technology, we offer prompt measurement services at competitive prices. Our company’s focus and commitment are always on customer satisfaction and working together to provide the optimum solution to change the face of measurement and to continue to revolutionise quality processes and systems.”
A Growing Business
The business was gaining momentum and receiving increasing requests for the inspection of parts. The rising number of components passing through the company’s busy QA department motivated them to look for an advanced portable measuring solution. After considering other similar capacity products, Measurewel decided that an Absolute Arm with integrated laser scanner from Hexagon was the ideal CMM for their needs. They’ve since been impressed with the robust reliability of an arm that offers scanning accuracy to within just 50 microns and has never demanded any service or maintenance in its six years of use at Measurewel.
The businesses requirement to continuously move its measuring systems to customer locations has shown the Absolute Arm to be a very user-friendly option. With this new improved portable measurement capability, the company began supporting industries outside the Aurangabad region, in areas such as Pune, Ahmed Nagar, Nasik, Nagpur and other parts of the country.
“We work on a concept of ‘pin-to-plane’, says Sanjay Yeola. Measurewel Director. “That means that we can measure parts from as small as a pin to as large as a plane.
