Measurement for manufacturers

Implementing best practice measurement process to drive efficiencies in manufacturing

We offer a service that embeds the capabilities and skills required to design and implement validated measurement and inspection processes in a way that meets customer requirements and optimises value to the manufacturer.

Measurement and inspection processes can help manufacturing companies drive efficiencies, optimise business performance and be fully compliant with relevant regulations. However, companies do not always have access to the skills and expertise to implement and manage these processes with confidence. As a result, many are missing out on the opportunities to apply measurement processes that drive innovation and continuous improvement across their business.

Companies working with our measurement experts can increase business and operational performance, driving up revenue, minimising waste and reducing defects and errors. In turn, this can provide their customers with the confidence that all products and services fully meet specified requirements.

Dimensional measurements

Without highly-accurate dimensional measurement we cannot have confidence in the interchangeability of parts and components, which can impact safety as well as harming global trade. To ensure parts perform as expected, they need to comply with design specifications. We can help you by providing access to a comprehensive suite of independent, high-quality measurement and inspection capabilities.
