Successful Application Story
A long-term customer reached out to Grand Rapids Metrology in need of a replacement for an old belt scale that had failed. This large company manufactured automotive parts, such as crank shafts, and utilized GRM’s calibration services for many years.
This particular company had their belt scale enclosed in a tunnel, causing GRM to have to get inside in order to take a look at the problem. When inside, we determined the measurements, belt speeds, and the kind of resolution that was desired. After the installation of the new belt scale that moved across up to 200 feet per minute, the customer saw drastic improvements. They were able to immediately notice an increase in quality in their operations and their final products.
This solution is now serviced annually by Grand Rapids Metrology. Our relationship with the customer was strong before the installation of this custom solution and will continue to be so as GRM has looked into numerous applications for the organization since then.
