ISO 9002 quality systems accreditation has always been a key objective for the business and the achievement of the accreditation in 1998 was a major milestone, but new market opportunities demanded not only strong quality systems, but also the equipment necessary to assure product quality. This meant moving into the adoption of automatic coordinate measuring machine (CMM) technology.
On this occasion a Brown & Sharpe Global 7.10.7 CMM was selected and after installation and initial training by Hi-Tech Metrology, the fully automatic CMM has now started producing quantifiable improvements in product quality and conformance. The Brown & Sharpe Global Performance from Hi-Tech Metrology provides an excellent solution for their close tolerance parts and sophisticated measurement tasks whilst also providing integration with their own 3D CAD systems.
Kewder now has the necessary confidence and the certainty that components machined will meet and exceed their stringent world-class requirements to deliver quality outcomes for all of their customers.
