MPPS invests in portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM)

02/11/2015

After upgrading its CAD solid modelling design systems, MPPS has invested in a ROMER Absolute Arm – portable coordinate measuring machine and DezignWorks software. With this equipment we can measure existing components and assemblies, link into our SolidWorks CAD system to produce component and drawings for record purposes and for replacement part manufacture. Where redesign or modify items are needed the data captured is used in the CAD system in producing modified designs and detailed manufacturing drawings. The ROMER CMM can also be used for inspection of new or modified items prior to final assembly providing data for comparison with design drawings.

In the first month of use, the CMM and software has been used both in-house and at customer sites, demonstrating significant savings in the time needed to measure items and produce technical design and inspection documentation. This investment in modern computer aided design and measuring systems is part of MPPS future plans to expand its capabilities in the design and delivery of individual components, assemblies, machine modifications and complete production systems.
