"Having previously used an older, slower CMM, due to the increasing volume of work passing through our busy Inspection Department, we became aware that we needed to invest in a faster, easier to programme machine."
Due to its exceptional speed, the Zenith Too has removed any potential for bottle-necks from our inspection function".
Senior Development Engineer at Melett's.
"Melett Limited has built its reputation on the quality of our products. The ever growing demand for our parts and assemblies has resulted in increasing levels of inspection throughput.
“Many turbocharger components have extremely demanding tolerances, and given our volume of inspection work, our main considerations when searching for a suitable CMM were accuracy and speed of use. Although, as our proposed CMM was going to be used by multiple operators, our eventual choice needed to be easy to operate.
“To enable a suitable machine to be sourced, we had demonstrations of several CMMs, and although cost was not the main issue, we considered that Aberlink’s Axiom Too’s had by far the best performance to price ratio. In fact, it become apparent despite the Aberlink machine being the least expensive option, it had a higher specification than most of the alternatives and provided the accuracy and speed that we needed.
“Following our Axiom Too training course, our inspection personnel have quickly become extremely proficient in the operation of Aberlink’s easy to use 3D software, and are now able to undertake even the most complex of measuring routines.
“As we have created programmes for many of our components, when the need arises, we are able to recall the relevant programme, load multiple parts on to the Axiom and undertake inspection routines in a fully automated CNC mode. When required, Aberlink’s software also allows us to generate comprehensive inspection reports.
