Stein-Moser adjusts waterjet cutting system using laser tracker

Quality is everything at waterjet cutting machine manufacturer Stein-Moser
Quality is everything at waterjet cutting machine manufacturer Stein-Moser. Therefore a highly efficient Leica Absolute Tracker is used during the assembly and checking of the machines. Handling pressure is part of everyday working life in Bischofshofen, Austria. Stein-Moser GmbH, which started life as a stonemasonry business, is now a leading manufacturer of waterjet cutting machines. These machines cut a variety of materials such as metal, glass, ceramics, stone or composites, delivering up to 6 litres of water per minute at a pressure of up to 4000 bar through the cutting head – the pressure is about 450 times higher than a professional espresso machine.
Stein-Moser GmbH places great emphasis on the high quality, ease of operation, efficiency and value for money of its products. To ensure the quality of its machines, Stein-Moser relies on superior components from selected suppliers. During the manufacture of a new machine, the cutting head is accurately measured and adjusted with the help of a Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 from Hexagon Metrology.

Accurate measurement: a competitive advantage
“The accurate measurement of the cutting head provides us with a competitive advantage,” says Managing Director Jürgen Moser. “By their very nature, accurately measured machines ultimately mean our customers manufacture a better quality component. To be known for quality is hugely important to us, especially nowadays when the range of applications for waterjet technology is expanding and our machines are in great demand. Therefore we supply measurement reports with all our machines.”

At Stein-Moser, the Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 replaces conventional measuring equipment such as dial gauges. “We were looking for a modern system that would speed up our measuring processes and provide more accurate measurements. At the same time, our new measuring system had to be portable and easy for our technicians to learn to operate,” says Jürgen Moser. “It did not take us very long to decide on the AT401. Four technicians perform measurements here using the tracker. They do it twice as fast as they did before.”
