Metrology

Metrology

At GTM we design and manufacture metrology fixtures and have the capability to create programmes for our metrology fixtures.

The written programme has to pass a gauge R&R protocol, we can do this for the customer, or they can do it themselves. The part is manually loaded and then it runs through a programme which gives you the measurements for the part, this is time stamped and all the information is readily available.

The gauge R&R protocol proves the repeatability of the part. The advantage is through the use of gauge R&R protocol the OGP provides reliability, precision and accuracy with a dedicated programme for each component/part.

Mould Validation

One of our unique service offerings is our state of the art validation centre, which compliments our full suite of services.

We offer our customers a variety of options to meet their validation requirements:

Our collaborative approach allows our customers to carry out their validation process at GTM’s market leading facility with their own staff, as we make time available on site for them.
