Vanderveer Industrial Plastics has recently expanded its abilities within the Quality Control Department by adding a third Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).
How this benefits our Quality Department
With each CMM we have added, we have gained additional:
- High Precision and Accuracy
- Accurate dimensions can be obtained just by knowing the coordinates and distance between two reference points.
- Robustness against external force and error accumulation
Brief Background of the CMM
A typical CMM is composed of three orthogonal axes, X, Y and Z operating in a three-dimensional coordinate system. Each axis has a scale system that indicates the position of that axis. The machine will read the input from the touch probe, as directed by the operator or computer program. The machine then utilizes the X, Y; Z coordinates of each of these discrete points to determine size and position with micrometer precision. The touch probe allows for the automatic generation of a measured point on the component surface while simultaneously and automatically recording the XYZ position in space of the point taken.
Not only is Vanderveer Industrial Plastics a premier source for high-performance thermoplastics and all fabrication and machining needs, but also a top facility when it comes to Quality Control. With our AS 9100 Certification, you can rest assured that the parts you order, are the parts you receive.
