Quality Control at West Engineering

ZEISS Coordinate Measuring Machine

When it comes to quality, West Engineering is committed to data-driven production. That means that we use the latest technologies in order to inspect not only our equipment, but also the products we manufacture in order to ensure they meet quality standards. One piece of quality inspection equipment that we employ is a ZEISS Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).

Coordinate Measuring Machines–an overview

As demands on performance and quality become higher and higher, so too do the demands for better industrial metrology equipment. Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) are built and designed to make precise measurements no matter the environment they’re in. 

CMMs measure the geometries of physical objects using a probing system that detects points on their surfaces. There are several different types of CMMs, distinguished by the axes that their systems can move along, their sizes, and their applications. Some common examples include:

  • Bridge 
  • Gantry
  • Cantilever
  • Horizontal Arm
  • Optical

Some CMMs are also portable, making them a versatile quality inspection device for use in many industrial environments.

How West Engineering uses our ZEISS CMMs

At West Engineering, we have ZEISS CMMs. ZEISS is a leading company in designing and manufacturing CMMs and and other metrology solutions for a wide range of suppliers in the automotive industry. They are a trusted source of many different types of metrology equipment for customers in a variety of industries and across four countries. 

Our ZEISS Coordinate measuring machine is user-friendly, while still relying on the most up-to-date measuring software. This machine can rapidly deliver reliable measurements, ensuring that products or equipment is up to standard. These measurements allow us to ensure that the products we manufacture for you have tight tolerance and accurate dimensions. Our CMM also helps us ensure that our equipment is up to code as well, meeting our stringent quality production requirements.
