SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Inspection and Measurement
Looking to step up your best practices for verification of the molds and parts you manufacture? Check out our slideshow for highlights of some of the latest inspection and measurement equipment introduced in the last year.
Inspection and measurement equipment, from the humble micrometer to the most sophisticated scanners, probes and coordinate measurement machines, is critical to the success of every mold and every component in that mold down to the smallest item. That’s why we see continued advancement in these technologies and innumerable introductions of inspection and measurement devices at trade events like IMTS, NPE, K, the Amerimold Expo, and others around the globe. It’s also why the latest products covered by MMT are being reviewed here in this week’s Technology Showcase.
