Successful Application Story

An automotive, quality control, tech center located in Auburn Hills, Michigan contacted Grand Rapids Metrology through our customer service portal and set up an appointment to discuss their measurement needs. The company is internationally known and is responsible for producing automotive parts and vehicles while reducing the chance for error that would lead to vehicle recalls.

Before GRM, the customer utilized hard wired wheel weighers that were old and required a high cost for repairs. Being mobile was impossible with their previous system and the company desired a portable scale. Grand Rapids Metrology brought in two wireless wheel weighers to demonstrate how this quality scale system could benefit and operate in the company’s location. The customer was impressed with the capabilities and unique custom solution GRM provided.

After the implementation, the company was now truly portable which was their goal from the beginning. They are more efficient in production and more sustainable as their new quality system utilized solar power. The safety hazard that was present in the beginning (glossy, slippery floors where truck ramps were located) were now no longer an issue as GRM provided roll-out mats for vehicles of numerous sizes. Lastly, the wireless indicators used in this process created a data string that their IT department uses to import live weights from the indicator. The company is very pleased with GRM’s innovation in products and services and plans to implement this system in their plants throughout the globe.
