Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology services provider, is adding a new facility. With existing facilities in Brookfield, Wisconsin; Cincinnati, Ohio; and one upcoming in Texas, the company will have a center in Moline, Illinois. The new location was scheduled to open March 1, 2020. The need for a new space arose from the increasing number of clients in the area.
The Moline location will serve as a training, support, contract measurement, and sales center. Training will be provided on software packages such as 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 for industries such as aerospace, archeology, medical, dental, tooling, and foundry. 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 a CMM. The Romer portable measuring arms, manufactured by Hexagon Metrology, 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. Lastly, 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 that will be 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.
Exact Metrology is ISO AS9100 certified along with being FFL and ITAR registered.
