INCREASING IMPORTANCE OF METROLOGY

In today's technical environment, the precise measurement of plant and production equipment has become an industry standard - and rightly so. Because optimally aligned machines are the prerequisite for minimal wear, efficient production processes and greater safety against failure.

METALOCK SERVICE

NEW – ENGINEERING AND METROLOGY FROM ONE SINGLE SOURCE

At Metalock, we now offer you both the metrology services and – if necessary – the subsequent machining or repair work of your plant machinery, conveniently from one single source. With this integrated solution, we simplify the project process for you, increase the efficiency of the machining process and provide you with precise documentation. In addition, the wear status of machines can be timely recorded by means of regular surveys and potential defects remedied early on.

Whether during the machining or repair of a system, to prevent wear and tear or in the case of customized retrofitting of machines – with our three measuring devices, the Laser Tracker, the Laser Scan Arm and the Laser Scanner, we implement versatile measuring tasks for you.

You need a system measurement with subsequent processing? You want to determine the degree of wear of your components? Describe briefly your concerns and we will send you an offer without obligation.

HOW YOU BENEFIT

Attractive overall Package

Machining and metrology by one single service provider – you benefit from clear communication channels and responsibilities, high quality assurance and positive cost effects.

Reliable Quality Management

Our metrology services follow highest standards. Our measuring equipment is recertified every year and used exclusively by experienced engineers.

Precise Documentation

On the basis of our measurement results, we provide you with a comprehensive and detailed documentation of the machining task we performed. This exact reference makes it easier for you to plan and evaluate future projects.

Efficient Process Management

Whether for preparation, as control during the machining process or as a reference for future projects – with exact measurement results, work processes can be planned and executed purposefully without unnecessary loss of time.

Quick Defect Analysis

With so-called reference networks we are able to quickly adapt to your specific environment in your production plant, and then capture your individual status quo with less effort.

VERSATILE APPLICATIONS

Reference Networks

From a long-term perspective, reference networks offer many benefits. They make it easier to initiate the measurement process for future tasks and thus save a lot of time. E. g. in rolling stands, reference networks are well suited to minimize the recurring expenses of machining operations.

Target-Performance Comparison

How did the component deform in the course of production? Are the deviations worrying? The comparison of a current measurement with the original CAD model quickly gives precise answers as to whether the production is still within tolerances or whether it requires repair.

Alignment & Adjustment

Whether setting up a processing machine, checking after a crash, as a routine check or when integrating new machines - with the Laser Tracker or the Laser Scan Arm, parallelism and axes can be determined with millimeter precision and then precisely aligned or adjusted.

Deformation Analysis

A collision or other external influences have led to a deformation of machine parts? If you compare current measurement results with previous reference data, the damaged areas can be precisely identified and then processed in a targeted manner.

Measurement of Components

The machine is not running smoothly, but you do not know exactly which element is responsible? A measurement of the individual components quickly provides clarity. Such metrological checks using a Laser Tracker or Laser Scan Arm are also suitable for incoming goods inspection.

As-Built-Documentation

In particular, large, complex systems can be measured in detail with relatively little effort thanks to the Laser Scanner. For example, these measurement results can be a helpful preparation for the planned relocation of a complete production plant or for future change measures.

Integration of new System Components

A metrological collision investigation in integration processes is an important preparatory process, for example when new machines are integrated into a plant. Thus, not only the ideal location, but also the right path to the factory floor can be reliably determined.

Made to Measure

The results of laser scans offer a variety of uses. Among other things, they can serve as a template for any kind of customization. Common examples include custom-made protective covers for transporting sensitive components or custom-made tool boxes.

Digitalization

The measurement of machine components or general components by means of laser scanning forms a precise basis for the digitization of these objects. Thus, optimizations or additional components can first be tested in the digital environment and then efficiently realized on the basis of these findings.

Contactless Inspection

Certain conditions and materials require non-contact inspections. A typical example of this are clean room areas. With the aid of the Laser Scanner for large objects and the Laser Scan Arm for smaller components, necessary inspections can be carried out easily without surface contact.

Reverse Engineering

A typical application of laser metrology is reverse engineering. With our various measuring devices, larger and smaller individual parts can be measured and examined separately in order to better understand the overall system. Even CAD models can be created subsequently.

Virtual Tours

The combination of various laser scan images can be used to create comprehensive 360-degree tours through entire production facilities. These are suitable, for example, for redevelopment planning. The responsible planning officer can thus comfortably "enter" the 3D system at any time from his desk and save time-consuming on-site visits.
