Status is excited to announce its recent membership with the Midlands Aerospace Alliance. This news underpins the company’s commitment to further develop its specialist aerospace division and continue its growth within the sector.
The aerospace industry is highly regulated and for good reason. Components have to be manufactured within precise tolerance ranges and because of that there’s absolutely no margin for error.
Sophisticated component measurement and inspection is essential for businesses throughout the entire aerospace supply chain and if you work in the industry you will know that Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM’s) play a vital part in maintaining the high levels of quality and compliance needed to meet regulatory requirements.
Keeping your CMM machine calibrated regularly will ensure that the measurement data that you create is accurate. The definitive procedure for calibration of CMMs which is used by all CMM manufacturers is the ISO 10360 series. Most CMM machine calibration will be accomplished with the use of an artefact, but for more demanding calibration, a laser interferometer can be employed. Ultimately CMM machine calibration comes down to one thing: precision.

Even the best coordinate measuring machines can’t perform in an excellent manner unless they are fitted with the proper software. New applications are appearing on the market on a regular basis, making the metrology task easier while improving measuring speed and results.

PC-DMIS was created to simplify the inspection process when using different metrology equipment. The benefits of this program are hard to underestimate. One of them is excellent and quick alignment.
CMM software has changed the approach to coordinate measurement. The precision, the speed, and the new applications have helped coordinate measuring machines reach a new level of performance accuracy.

No matter how high in quality the measuring equipment you use seems, it needs regular calibration. Otherwise, there is a substantial danger of inaccuracy, which eventually leads to serious mistakes, botched deadlines, and extra expenses. Gauge calibration is extremely important since the precision of pressure gauge readings is the key to numerous production processes.
Topics: Air Gauges
Air gauges for measuring were invented almost 100 years ago, in 1919. Even though many other metrology devices have been created since then, the air gauge measuring instrument remains one of the most effective tools for a variety of inspection processes.
Maximum precision is the golden standard businesses strive for. Digital micrometers are created to provide the most precise information on the size of the smallest objects or the distance within something.
A digital universal calliper is an irreplaceable tool for any project which requires precise measurements. This unit doesn’t just ensure maximum precision, it eliminates the need for other measuring tools since it can deal with a variety of objects. Taking advantage of a universal digital micrometer can help any technician achieve the most accurate results in the shortest amount of time.
