The world is expanding and becoming even more connected. New markets are opening and environmental pressure is being put on governments and multi-national companies. As a result it is changing the way components and products are manufactured. There is no place to hide and lack of knowledge is not taken lightly, especially when there are many tools that are now available that will aid companies in their manufacturing processes.
A metrology technology explosion is occurring. Companies must be ready for a metrology revolution on the shop floor. 10 years ago, metrologists gathered over a beer to talk about the digital thread. Five years ago, they were pitching fast, easy-to-use scanners with a PowerPoint deck. Now those digital solutions are no longer dreams. By putting intelligence inside scanning systems and their associated software, shop floor personnel can operate a scanner after watching just a few videos.
Metrology and quality are now an integral part of an organisation and provide opportunities for sales, training, implementation, support and professional services as well as product development in the manufacturing space.
To enable manufacturing companies to efficiently create, manage and monitor all quality requirements across manufactured components and products Apex Metrology Solutions SA is supplying bespoke solutions using the latest quality management and scanning software and equipment technologies. They offer a wide range of products and services – from ZG 3D scanners and CAD software to contract measurement and scanning, CMM refurbishment and spares.
