Southwest Venture Plastics Invest In CMM To Better Serve Customers

Southwest Venture Plastics (SVP), a leading custom thermoplastic injection molder with full ISO/IATF 16949 certifications, has announced its recent investment in cutting-edge metrology equipment: the Zeiss Mass Accura Coordinated Measuring Machine (CMM) to the Quality Department. This strategic addition to SVP’s capabilities significantly bolsters its ability to cater to customers requiring pinpoint accuracy for parts of various sizes and confirms the part’s conformance to specifications. With the large scanning machines SVP can now provide customers with large part requirements a better CMM option compared having to ship the part to an external service provider.

The Zeiss Mass Accura CMM is designed to cater to the intricate needs of the plastics industry. This advanced measuring machine offers versatility, speed, and state-of-the-art technology, making it ideal for assessing complex shapes and contours. Notably, its high-speed scanning capabilities enable rapid data capture, especially for clients with multi-tool packages.

What sets the Zeiss Mass Accura CMM apart is its integration with the latest Calypso software. Calypso is a versatile platform accommodating various measurement techniques, including touch-trigger probing, and optical measurement. This integration streamlines the process by seamlessly importing CAD (Computer-Aided Design) models, thereby reducing programming time and minimizing errors. Operators benefit from real-time visualization, allowing instant identification of any deviations from design specifications or quality issues.
