CMM Dimensional Inspection Services

For over 35 years, Made to Measure has performed Dimensional Inspection—originally as an in-house metrology lab—to ensure machined parts were within tolerance. Now, as an ISO 17025 certified independent metrology lab, we offer CMM measurements to ensure integrity in quality control.

We take great care in comparing the actual condition of manufactured parts, components, tooling and dies to the nominal condition as expressed in 2D drawings, 3D Models—and even the master product or tooling. The precision measurement services are we offer are referred to by many names, and all of them fall under the category of dimensional inspection, including:

• Dimensional Metrology
• Product Evaluation
• Inspection Services
• Parts Inspection

• Metrology Services
• Layout Inspection
• Validation
• CMM Inspection

• Contract Inspection
• Measuring Services
• Verification

Inspection and Measurements Methods & Approaches

We have provided dimensional inspection for companies in most industries including aerospace, medical, plastics, metal fabrication and automotive. Because all components are uniquely engineered and manufactured, Made to Measure employs many different methodologies and approaches to capture dimensional nuances of the design. Dimensional inspection services offered through our metrology lab include:

• Non-Contact Inspection
• Visual Measurement Machine (VMM)
• Laser scanning
• Visual Inspection

Capability Studies & Statistical Analysis
SPC (Statistical Process Control)
• Gage R&R
• PPAP (Production Part Approval Process, AQQP, Annuals)
• Form & Roundness Testing

Contour Analysis 2D & 3D
• Model based definition
• Part-to-CAD comparisons
• 3D best-fit

Highly Experienced & Educated Staff

At Made to Measure, we have a saying that the ruby ball is no better than the CMM it’s attached to. Furthermore, we know very well that the CMM—or any metrology equipment for that matter—is only as good as the metrologist operating it. That’s why all Made to Measure metrologists go through extensive training and certification to ensure that that we provide superior measurements and reports that are based on objective and thorough dimensional data that our customers can depend on.

All Made to Measure Metrologists are ultimately trained and/or certified in several areas of Metrology including:

  • ASME GDT&P Certification
  • GD&T Fundamentals & Advanced Principles
  • AUKOM I, II, III & GD&T Metrology Principles
  • Blueprint Reading
  • Metrology Equipment Usage
  • CMM Software
  • Solidworks

Our team is made of individuals from diverse manufacturing, quality, and engineering backgrounds. Our metrologists have extensive professional experience with mold making, tool making, mechanical engineering, and manufacturing engineering. Plus, our team can speak a total of 6 different languages—including Spanish, German, Polish, Bosnian, Korean, and Hindi.
