At Pentaxia we are constantly striving to improve our capabilities and investing in equipment is just one of the ways we do this. In recent weeks we have taken receipt of a Hexagon DEA Global CMM system (with 3m table). Supplied locally by Status Metrology who are based just a short distance away in Sandiacre, it gave us a great opportunity to work with and support another business in the East Midlands.
The team from Status have worked tirelessly to ensure the CMM delivers exactly what we need it to do. They have delivered extensive PC-Dmis Level 1 & 2 training to our inspection team to ensure we maximise the full potential of this new equipment. Both Chris and Richard did an excellent job delivering the training in our incredibly busy Inspection department whilst also adhering to our Covid-safe procedures.
Our new CMM system will allow us to carry out automated in-depth inspections of components up to 3 metres long, 1 metre tall and 1.2 metres high. This significant investment has been driven by sector specific customer demand, especially in the defence and aerospace sectors.
It will enable our inspection facility to further increase capacity and is a welcomed addition to the team!
