Measurement

We specialize in the measurement, alignment and analysis of machinery and plant, including machinery of any size, assembly lines, structures, cranes, tanks, silos, tools, fixtures etc. Whether you need to verify the surface of a press tool or align the components of massive  mining equipment the DMS has the hardware, software and experience to get the job done.   Machinery and plant can be checked for:

  • Comparison to 3D CAD
  • Comparison to 2D Drawings
  • Position
  • Perpendicularity 
  • Angularity
  • Surface Profile
  • Circular Runout
  • Total Runout
  • Concentricity
  • Parallelism
  • Orientation
  • Shape
  • Level to Gravity
  • Flatness 
  • Straightness
  • Clyindricity
  • Circularity

Alignment

Precision alignment of machinery is performed during equipment installation, maintenance/repair and upgrading.  Depending on the type of alignment required any number of precision instruments could be used including laser trackers, total stations, photogrammetry or precision levels. The real time measurement capabilities of these systems allows for fast and accurate (down to 0.025mm) alignment of components. Machinery can be aligned in real-time to ensure level to gravity, flatness, straightness, clyindricity, circularity, parallelism, perpendicularity, angularity, surface profile, circular runout, total runout, and concentricit.

Dimensional Metrology Services has extensive experience in precision alignment including automotive and aerospace jigs and fixtures and assembly tools, shipbuilding, antennas, rail (trains and bogies), conveyors, cranes, machinery, mining equipment, plastic, paper and steel mills to name but a few.
