Originally, Metronor was designed for modern automotive production which explains why the features of our range of portable CMMs are so well-suited for geometry assurance for the automotive industry – such as large measurement volume, accuracy, deep probing, high portability and simultaneous measurement of multiple points.
TOOL CERTIFICATION, BUILDING, REPEATABILITY AND INSPECTION
Almost every automotive manufacturer in the world is using our systems for various applications. Our systems for BIW tooling facilitate tool certification, tool building, tool repeatability, fast repair during line stops and inspections of sheet-metal tooling. Other applications include car quality analysis and assembly troubleshooting.
Truck and bus manufacturers benefit from Metronor’s portable CMM systems that are ideally suited for large-volume operations such as inspection of the tooling, chassis, cabins and frames.
You can launch your product months ahead of schedule and with the highest quality by having a successful tool certification process. This process should include verifying tool to CAD, verifying repeatability of part-in-tool and finally, verifying part-in-tool to CAD. But the question is whether you have found the right tool for such a task – A measurement system that covers the large volume required, with the ability to measure deep hidden points, should be rugged, portable and suitable for on-site operation. Precisely what Metronor’s CMM systems offer.
The DUO is the best solution for tool certification. With a measurement range up to 15m, accuracy within 0.1mm even in frame station range, excellent ruggedness and portability, you’ll be able to secure tool and part geometry and minimize any process influences. Unlike laser trackers and articulated arms, Metronor DUO stands out for its deep probing and almost unlimited measurement range.
PROTOTYPING & TRIAL PRODUCTION
Portability, ease-of-use, efficiency, and with the adequate measurement range and accuracy; Metronor’s portable CMM is exactly the tool to immediately find and secure the geometry problems of jigs, fixtures and sheet-metal in tool on site. Many complex problems are readily solved by feature-based probing.
ON-LINE CHASSIS MEASUREMENT
The quality of the chassis is especially important for producing good trucks and busses. The geometry of each chassis should be measured and recorded during the production. Challenges arise when the part is say 12m in length and you have to finish all the measurements within a few minutes due to the pressure of the production cycle. A Metronor SOLO is the ideal solution for measurements of chassis, frames and cabins. Its measurement range is up to 25m, whilst easy to use and of quick operation.
