Given the extremely harsh environments Underwater Lights products are used in, the company oversees a rigorous quality control regime. In addition to strict goods inward checks and continuous in-process production monitoring, each finished product undergoes a meticulous final inspection routine. To ensure the continued quality of the company's output Underwater Lights recently invested in an Xtreme Coordinate Measuring Machine.
Air bearings' demanding applications and high precision nature means that their component parts have exacting dimensional tolerances. To enable strict adherence to the quality standards required by a new contract, Westwind instigated a search for an advanced Coordinate Measuring Machine. The key requirements were for high operational speeds and large granite beds that could accommodate multiple parts for automated batch measurement. The CNC version of Aberlink's Axiom too satisfied all criteria.
