Tactile, optical or manual: With its comprehensive range of measuring services, Zeppelin is your flexible and competent partner when it comes to measuring series or initial sample parts.
Tactile measurement is widely regarded as the most precise measurement method on the market. To map the geometry of a component, probes smoothly slides over the component point by point and measure straightness, roundness, and flatness of lines and surfaces.
Measurement is efficient and contactless. The optical sensors of the measuring system scan the component either stationary in the laboratory or alternatively on site at the customer. This makes optical metrology much more flexible than tactile metrology.
Surface roughness plays an important role in components for highly sensitive applications. It is a key feature when it comes to preparing a subsequent coating, a joining process or the installation of dynamically loaded machine elements.
For highly loaded, weight-optimized gear parts, dimensional accuracy of the components is indispensable. This is a special requirement for tactile gear measurement, because here not only special precision is needed, but also quantity.
Dimensional inspection is an essential part of a first article inspection before the validation of the specifications for a series product, including its tolerances, is completed. This is the only way to ensure the quality of the series.
The term "reverse engineering" refers to the regeneration of component or surface contours into 3D CAD data. This saves a lot of valuable design time if the data is not yet available in the desired digitized form.
