Successful Application Story

After coming into contact with an aerospace parts manufacturer, Grand Rapids Metrology introduced the company to our capabilities regarding vision systems. The company has operations throughout the nation including Muskegon, Michigan. Before Grand Rapids Metrology’s intervention, the customer used optical comparators to inspect their parts as well as hand tools and hard gauges. The company knew about the abilities of a vision system, but once one was brought to their facility for a demonstration, it was clear that this equipment would complement their operations.

After they purchased numerous vision systems from GRM, the customer saw that this new process greatly reduced the time it took to inspect parts, which was a huge advantage. Likewise, being able to overlay the drawing of the parts with the parts themselves increased accuracy. Everything was also now stored electronically on their network which allowed them to use any one of their machines to inspect and measure parts at any time.

Grand Rapids Metrology has continued to sell vision systems to this customer and annually certify their metrology equipment. They have been very pleased with the products and calibration services we have provided them. Although challenges arose throughout our relationship, by collaborating we have been able to work together and overcome these obstacles.
