New CMM for IV Techmould measurement room

IV Techmould invest in a brand new CMM machine for the Quality department measurement room. The old one was sold as part of the sale of IV Techmould tool shop. IV Techmould Quality Manager Mrs. Grace Hou comment on the new CMM.
“We had an agreement with the new owner of the tool shop that we could continue to use the CMM but in praxis it didn’t work well so we decided investing in a new CMM. The CMM we chose was a Hexagon Explorer 07.10.05 equipped with a powerful measuring software and a probe system with a motorized indexable head”. With this new CMM IV Techmould can handle all common measurement task. Mrs. Grace Hou continue to say that “With the new CMM we can measure some dimensions which Smartscope can’t and make the measurement result more accurate with a tolerance level at 0.005mm. So the CMM will complement our 3 OGP Smartscope and our 3D scanner well. It will be used both for full measurements, FAI and production process control. It also add both capability and capacity in all aspects of our quality work” The new CMM was installed in February and now in March our team has been at supplier for extensive training on operating the CMM so it will be in full used from March 27th.

New Vision Inspection system

As part of our continues improvement work at IV Techmould we invests in a Vision Inspection machine (CCD) to inspect part quality for parts that we paint and then laser etch symbols on. The machine will be onsite in beginning of April and be integrated to our laser etching line to ensure a 100% objective inspection of the product quality as part of our production line. This will also reduce the number of operators needed.
