ON-SITE IN SITU INSPECTION
Hofmann Engineering is committed to the highest quality and has a focus on pushing the boundaries of existing technology.
Quality can only be achieved if it can be measured accurately. On-site, in situ metrology methods are a cost effective and efficient option to measure wear, problem solve and measure up for a new replacement part.
Hofmann Engineering have invested in a variety of equipment including Portable Coordinate Measuring Machines (PCMMs), laser scanners and laser trackers.
The PCMMs achieve an accuracy of 20µm (0.001”) and run a number of different software applications for general inspection and a unique gear inspection software.
The laser scanner attaches to the head of the PCMMs and produces a laser scanned point cloud from which a model can be created.
The laser trackers have a 320m radial measuring envelope producing micron accuracy on large parts such as mill heads, gearbox casing and slew gears.
With such a range of metrology equipment, Hofmann Engineering has an accurate metrology solution for each situation.
