Wenzel’s Manufacturing Day Sparked Students’ Interest in Metrology


Wenzel America, a leader in providing metrology and automotive styling solutions, provided another first: the first company to sponsor a Manufacturing Day for 2016. Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to shine the spotlight on 21st century manufacturing and inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

At the event, 15 students experienced a hands-on view into the world of dimensional metrology and metrology principles, including how a CT system can scan a medical implant as well as teaching them about the language of GD&T.

“Until I went to manufacturing day at Wenzel, I wasn’t even sure what a quality part inspection process really was,” one student said. “Not only did it give me a better understanding of what is involved, it also gave me an appreciation for what metrology can offer me as a career path.”

The event also gave students a rare glimpse into how the balance of strength, accuracy, and fluidity makes a CMM so good at what it does, insights they can incorporate when starting on their own unique journey into the metrology side of manufacturing.
