Example of scan from GOM scannerExact Metrology, a leading provider of 3D and CT scanning equipment and metrology services, now offers the GOM CT scanner — the most accurate industrial CT scanner currently on the market. The GOM CT scanner offers the highest accuracy and highest resolution of any 225kV system available today and Exact Metrology devised the “GOM CT Challenge” to prove this.
“If a company is considering the purchase of a CT scanner, they can call us and validate the suitability, then send us a part.  We’ll scan it and send them the images.  If they don’t believe the output is superior to other scanners in the 225kV range, we’ll send them $100…no strings attached,” said Steve Young, co-president of Exact Metrology.

Sit down area of the open houseWixom, Michigan-On July 24-25, Zimmermann Inc., the North American affiliate of Zimmermann GmbH in Germany, hosted an open house at its headquarters here for its customers and prospects in North America. Among the crowd were many major suppliers to aerospace and automotive, as well as other large part producers for the OEM, media from the industry, suppliers and other associates of Zimmermann. Machines were on display, highlighted by the company’s FZ33, a compact and highly flexible 5-axis gantry mill designed specifically for moldmaking.

Presentations were given throughout the event, which also featured displays from a number of Zimmermann business partners, including Mapal, Keller, Siemens, Zoller, Heidenhain, Fischer, Tebis, Unisorb, Weiss and Haimer.

The open house was hosted by Zimmermann GmbH President Frieder Gänzle, as well as Zimmermann, Inc. President Cornelius Kiesel and his team for North American engineering, sales and service.

Gänzle commented, “We are very committed to success in the American moldmaking market, as we have experienced good results in aerospace and other large component production for years here.” Kiesel echoed that sentiment, “Our customers are growing in number in the moldmaking industry, owing to the solid stability of our machines, with their highly flexible programming capability and swivel 5-axis head, that allow very fine finishing on the mold surfaces, as well as intricate pocket machining with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.”

One of the main suppliers to Zimmermann for CNC is Heidenhain and Gisbert Ledvon, the company’s marketing manager who attended the event, observed, “Zimmermann is a very good customer, as they work closely with us and their customers to produce CNC programs for application-specific purposes. They also put on a very fun event!”

As a testimony to the long-lasting quality of Zimmermann milling machines, a unit built over 20 years ago was also on display. This machine is currently being retrofitted for resale to an interested customer. (Interested parties may contact Cornelius Kiesel at Zimmermann for details.) The machine is well suited to the aerospace industry, where Zimmermann offers its portal milling machines for spars and stringers for all commercial aircraft currently in use.

All attendees enjoyed the food, evening entertainment and collegiality at the event.

monoliths in Peru

Exact Metrology Prepares Peru Trip

The company’s marketing manager prepares his August trip to Peru with Peruvian archeologist to collect scan data

Exact Metrology Goes to PeruJason Kleinhenz, the Exact Metrology marketing manager and a degreed engineer, is getting ready to visit Peru from August 5 to August 19. He will be assisting archeologist and teacher, Daniel Fernandez-Davila and a group of 12. Kleinhenz wants to collect scan data with the Artec scanners (sponsored and supplied by Artec) of ancient artifacts and up to three monoliths. Once the data is processed, it will be given to the local museum and the local area communities.

Daniel Fernandez-Davila teaches in Massachusetts. For 21 years, he has explored one of the most remote areas of Peru, the north high jungle of the Chacapoyas. Besides students from Wayland, Massachusetts and Kleinhenz, the team lead by Fernandez-Davila includes Rachel Lorenc and Nick Ciorogan. Lorenc is a research assistant at John Hopkins University. Ciorogan is a filmmaker working on the film “My Teacher,” which talks about how Fernandez-Davila is making an impact with his visits to Peru.

In addition to exposing students to the culture of Peru, Fernandez-Davila challenges them emotionally, mentally and physically by introducing them to a completely different way of life. As part of the trip, the team will perform philanthropic work for rural communities such as: dental work and providing school supplies.

Fernandez-Davila is excited to use Exact Metrology’s 3D scanners to preserve Peru’s archeological treasures. In the past, he could only take one photo and this worried him because the moisture of the jungle would destroy everything. This year, he decided to take action and start small. His goal is to 3D scan one large monolith with carvings. There are two other monoliths in the area that must be scanned before the rain erodes the carvings. In order to best achieve this, Fernandez-Davila declared that “I am hiring an engineer from Exact Metrology who will accompany me and digitalize the whole monolith and reveal its complex carvings with 3D portable deep laser scanners. This will allow me to create images and drawings I can give to the local museum of Leymebamba and I will also share them with the communities of peasants around the monolith.”

Exact Metrology is an ISO 9001:2008, AS9100, FFL and ITAR Certified Company.

Exact Metrology, with facilities in Cincinnati and Milwaukee and affiliated offices throughout the Midwest, is a comprehensive metrology services provider, offering customers 3D scanning, reverse engineering, quality inspection, product development CT scanning and services and 2D drawings.

GMTA Hard Scudding

GMTA Presents Profilator and its “Micro-Finishing” Technology at Motion + Power Technology Expo

GMTA Hard Scudding Micro-FinishingWith over 300 exhibiting companies, the Motion+ Power Technology Expo is the ideal show for gear, electric and fluid power industries. Taking place between October 15 and 17, GMTA is one of the exhibitors at the Cabo Center in Detroit, Michigan.

GMTA will feature its Profilator line of gear pointing, rounding, cutting, Scudding®, Hard Scudding®, deburring and polygon machine tools for North America. The highly modular machines are used for polygon and slot facing, shifter stop machining, chamfering and deburring of highly complex automotive and other powertrain gears. The “Scudding®” and the “Hard Scudding®” process sets the Profilator apart in the market because of its manufacturing efficiency. “Hard Scudding®” allows the machining of green and hardened gears on the same machine, using the same programs. Furthermore, it is a superior technology to skiving, the previous technology used in the gear industry.

GMTA Hard Scudding Micro-FinishingWhile Profilator GmbH & Co. KG introduced the concept of “Hard Scudding®” in 2015, it expanded scudding technology with “Micro-Finishing.” “Micro-Finishing” takes place after the Hard Scudding® process has been completed. The process takes a high quality “Hard Scudding®” part and improves its surface quality. Additionally, this is a completely “dry” machining process and requires no cutting fluids or MQL technology. The total cycle time for finishing a ring gear via Hard Scudding® and “Micro-Finishing” is approximately 64 seconds but the cycle time could be decreased by 10%, keeping it under one minute for all automotive gear rings.

GMTA Hard Scudding Profilator Micro-Finishing Machine “Micro-Finishing” technology is aimed at making at quieter gear and the superfinishing process reduces friction, increases pitting resistance and the life of gears. This process uses a high quality diamond plated tool, designed to remove only a small amount of part material. The resulting part greatly increases surface quality on the gear teeth.

Stop by at booth 4439 to find out more about the technologies at GMTA.
