Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology services provider, will be adding a new facility to existing facilities in Brookfield, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, Ohio and an upcoming one in Texas. The company has announced it will open an addition center in Moline, Illinois set to open March 1, 2020. The need for the additional facility has arisen from an increasing number of clients in the area.
The new Moline facility will serve as a training, support, contract measurement and sales center. Training will be provided on software packages including PolyWorks, Geomagic and PC-DMIS. The Polyworks software suite maximizes productivity, quality, and profit, while integrating 3D measurement technologies into an industrial manufacturing process. Geomagic is a leading provider of 3D software that creates digital models of physical objects across industries.
Provided by Exact Metrology through Hexagon Metrology, PC-DMIS offers the most popular dimensional metrology software package. Hardware classes will be offered for Romer, Leica Tracker, Surphaser, Leica RTC 360 and CMM’s. Manufactured by Hexagon Metrology, the Romer portable measuring arms offer reliable 3D measurements. Leica Laser Trackers are ideal for measuring medium to large parts and providing a portable solution for large-scale inspection and assembly applications. The Surphaser line provides short, medium and long range models for use in reverse engineering, dimensional control, historical preservation, architecture and forensics. Leica RTC empowers users to document and capture environments in 3D, improving efficiency and productivity through fast, simple-to-use, accurate and portable hardware and software. Exact Metrology will also offer a complete range of portable Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) and custom classes for any measurement needed. Day classes and half day classes will be available.
Contract services offered include CMM measurement, custom programming, inspection and reverse engineering. Inspection is important because when a part is defined by millions of points, users can see subtle deviations, slight variations and fine details, thus ensuring that a part or mold meets certain specifications. 3D inspection is recommended for first article inspections, first-off inspections (sampling), in-process inspections, die tryouts, tool and die duplication and statistical sampling. Reverse engineering is not only used for product design but also for legacy part repair and re-manufacturing, product benchmarking, documentation and archival, site planning, defect/deterioration documentation, medical devices and custom-fit products.
Commenting on the importance of this opening, Joe Wright of Exact Metrology said, “Exact Metrology can add support and service to our customers in western Illinois and Iowa. We hope to keep growing the customer base in this area.” Exact Metrology is an ISO AS9100 Certified along with being FFL and ITAR Registered.
