The UK has always been a leader in a range of heavy industries, in particular those associated with transport such as shipbuilding, train manufacture and trucks. Other areas of heavy industry include military applications and power generation. Our reputation for providing solutions and services that are accurate and reliable has enabled us to work with many of the leading companies in the heavy industry sectors, including companies as diverse as Bombardier, Leyland Trucks, Vestas, Dresser Rand and many of the leading suppliers to the Ministry of Defence.

We have established ourselves as a performing and trusted provider of 3D measurement solutions, that can be used for applications such as ;

- Quality Control/inspection

- Aerodynamics/stress analysis

- Reverse engineering

- MRO and damage assessment

- Prototype, tooling and mold adjustment

- Design and engineering of components and assemblies

Assessing Assembly Conditions for Manufacturing Processes

Applications within heavy industry and large scale manufacturing often involve complex and often critical assemblies, so it is vital to be able to assess the “as-built” condition of each component in order to perform adequate simulations and fully understand the status of an assemmbly. Knowledge of how an assembly goes together and the position of each part relative to others throughout the assembly process can enable design adjustments such that the need for new adjustment parts can be determined.

Our range of measurement systems, including portable CMM and scanning devices, provide operators with a variety of easy-to-use and cost-effective tools for assessing components and assemblies.

Maintenance and Repair Operations (MRO)

Reactors and turbines are costly, essential pieces of equipment that have to undergo regular maintenance. The high cost of such equipment justifies repairs which are often complex due to problems such as deterioration or wear-and-tear

To determine the level and extent of repairs required, warping or loss of material due to wear can be measured precisely with our range of high accuracy measurement and scanning devices.

Part-to-CAD Inspection / Product Compliance

All parts on a production line are subject to 3-dimensional verification from time to time throughout the manufacturing process. In large scale applications, quality control is extremely comprehensive, often involving 100% inspection of all parts that can involve the measurement of many hundreds of features, especially on free-form or complex shapes.

The need to measure efficiently is vital to ensure timely manufacture and assembly of complex assemblies. We are able to provide a wide range of products and services to assist with your inspection demands, including portable 3D CMM and scanning systems for large scale measurement applications.

Testing and Adjustment of Design Tooling

At the start of a new production line, design tools (moulds, jigs and assembly tooling) must be periodically inspected, adjusted and calibrated as part of the on-going preventive maintenance and to ensure traceability.

Our range of portable 3D measurement systems play a major role in ensuring that you deliver the expected levels of performance. Our photogrammetry systems provide unrivalled accuracy and ease of use for large measuring applications.
