With a portable CMM arm (PCMM) and laptop on the shop floor, parts can be scanned with the data points sent upstream for instant analysis, comparison to the CAD file, the CAM program, comparable machines in the shop producing the same or similar parts and other actions in an information stream.

Industry 4.0 Through the “Eyes” of Metrology

High-precision 3D laser and now CT scanning bring all the “big data” directly from shop floor to top floor Read, compare … reset Enter "metrology" Not altering, enhancing

Industry 4.0. Big data. The Internet of Things (IoT). What does it all mean, and how will it affect the daily operation of manufacturers?

Production management has always relied on data; whether at OEMs, in contract manufacturing, or at job shops, there’s always a need to review the information on production. From analyzing the piece part consistency across a batch run to taking CMM measurements and comparing part dimensions to the drawing or CAD file, with subsequent adjustme
