Restructuring of Inspection Department

Lattimer have just completed a major restructuring of our inspection department with the introduction of a new Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and Standards Room for gauge calibrations.

The CMM purchased is a top of the range Zeiss Contura RDS with a measuring range of X 700mm, Y 1000mm and Z 600mm. This machine increases our measuring capabilities allowing us to measure larger, more complex products, faster and more accurately and gives us the ability to report measured data in a more user friendly manner.

The Calypso measuring software supplied enables programming to be undertaken with or without the use of CAD data, a two way STEP converter allows Lattimer to create 3D Geometry from solid parts which can then be converted and used with our Solidworks design software helping speed up product development.

The machine is fitted with a tool change rack to enable measuring programs to run automatically without the requirement for manual intervention, speeding up measuring times and increasing throughput.

This significant investment further demonstrates Lattimer’s total commitment to the supply of quality products to our customers.
