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.”
