UK technology exclusives as OGP announces an open house not to miss
The OGP open house offers engineering and manufacturing professionals a unique opportunity to view world-leading multi-sensor metrology technology never before seen in the UK – all under one roof.
Derbyshire-based OGP UK has announced what promises to be the most insightful and in-demand open house in its history to date, with machine launches complemented by live demonstrations and hands-on challenges.
Visitors will get the first glimpse of the FlexPoint system, the only co-ordinate measurement machine featuring multiple high-accuracy sensors in a VersaFlex cluster head, for precision inspection and data reporting on intricate manufactured parts.
In another UK first, the Fusion – OGP’s most advanced, versatile and capable multi-sensor SmartScope system ever – will be on show, as will the ShapeGrabber Ai620, a metrology-class 3D scanner capable of rapidly assessing complex surfaces with a high density of data points.
OGP UK Sales Manager Graham Shaw said: “Our open houses, held at our state-of-the-art demonstration facility near Derby, are always popular events that allow us to interact with delegates in a way we aren’t typically able to.
“With so many technological advancements and UK exclusives on show, this will be one that nobody wants to miss.
“It’s also a chance for customers old and new to bring along their most complex and difficult-to-measure components, so that our experts can not only advise on the best solution but also actually demonstrate that solution in action.
“Our guarantee is that multi-sensor metrology can dramatically improve any production process in any industry.”
Regardless of the size of the manufacturing operation, multi-sensor metrology systems allow businesses to gauge the characteristics of the parts they produce quickly, repeatably and without human error.
Working with real-time, micron-accurate statistics allows operators to identify and remedy any production issues immediately, leading to less scrap and a faster throughput of high-quality, right-first-time products.
Having earned UKAS accreditation, OGP UK is able to perform acceptance and re-verification tests on optical measuring systems in accordance with ISO 10360-7, confirming that the company works to the very highest quality standards.
With unique access to machine error compensation and verification routines, its service engineers deliver holistic calibrations to maintain equipment at manufacturer specifications throughout its entire lifetime.
