MACH 2018 has proven a resounding success for metrology innovators Measurement Solutions with the company selling several Metrascan 3D Inspection Systems throughout the week, as well as a host of other 3D scanning, measurement and inspection technology. Four Metrascan units have been sold to major UK automotive OEM’s and a leading F1 team.
Lead generation at MACH was extraordinarily high for Measurement Solutions and the Metrascan certainly proved a crowd pleaser among show visitors. However, the high-end inspection equipment isn’t exclusive to high-end OEMs and F1 teams; as Area Sales Manager, Mr Deryck Lamb says: “We sold one Metrascan 3D Inspection System with a Handyprobe portable CMM to Stevenage Sheet Metal, a subcontract automotive sheet metal manufacturer. The six figure order was placed on the fourth day of the show to significantly improve component quality and conformity to Stevenage Sheet Metal’s impeccable standards.”
The 50 employee Hertfordshire manufacturer has facilities that include CAD Design Services, CNC bending & punching, laser cutting, painting and powder coating, shearing, graining and welding. Stevenage Sheet Metal showed an interest in scanning technology two years ago. However, the Metrascan 3D technology has only been available in the UK for the last 18 months; and as soon as the Letchworth company seen the Metrascan at Chasestead, a supply chain partner, a decision to investigate further was made. Stevenage Sheet Metal visited MACH, received a demonstration and the decision was instantly made.
