Portable Metrology

Handheld Scanning & Portable Measurement Technologies

For many years, Measurement Solutions has been a traditional metrology solution provider, offering CMM's and CMM software. However, the metrology industry is moving fast, so we have re-structured our company to create business units that are dedicated to specific market sectors and application requirements.

Portable Metrology

The metrology industry has seen rapid changes in technology over recent years, no more so than in portable measuring solutions.

With the advent of portable measuring arms over 20 years ago, engineers have been able to take measurement out of the measuring room and onto the shop floor. In recent years, we have seen the advent of hand-held systems that are equal to, if not more accurate than, portable arm solutions. The all-new HandySCAN BLACK is a typical example, where hand-held 3D scanning has now surpassed the speed, accuracy and portability of a traditional measuring arm. 

The Portable Metrology of Measurement Solutions focuses primarily on the latest portable measurement solutions, providing an array of 3D measurement and scanning systems for a wide range of applications.

Activities focus exclusively on sales and support of portable measuring systems for industrial applications, such as the market-leading HandySCAN BLACK  and MetraSCAN3D solutions from Creaform, providing customers with a wide range of metrology, inspection, product design, and reverse engineering solutions, with the flexibility to operate with all types of CAD and inspection software.

Our specialist sales and applications engineers bring a high degree of technical knowledge through their experience in a wide range of manufacturing and design sectors. With existing customers as diverse as Jaguar Land Rover, Airbus, Dyson, Toyota, Natural History Museum, JCB, Rolls Royce, Ministry of Defence, plus several F1 teams, we are sure to have a portable scanning or measurement solution for all of your inspection and reverse engineering needs.
