New measuring capacity
– With the new machine investment, we handle longer objects in the measuring lab and become a one stop supplier. We also accept more jobs from other labs and reduce our lead times. It is actually quite rare among measuring labs to be able to calibrate these long objects, says Torbjörn Karlsson, Metrology Laboratory & Calibration, LEAX Quality.
The new equipment measures objects up to 1,500 millimeters. Previous equipment set the limit at 600. The mix of customers (industry, medicine, aviation, offshore, power plants) makes LEAX Quality's measurement lab a versatile service provider.
– Now, for example, we measure longer adjustment dimensions, gauge blocks, tubular inside micrometers and on request we can supplement the equipment for larger dimensions of screw rings, plain cylindrical gauges and setting rings. Jobs we previously received inquiries about but were forced to say no to.
