Assisting in quest for highest quality

NEMA Ltd, a manufacturer of motors, actuators and electromechanical assemblies, has invested in the latest Keyence IM series measurement system.
Andy Wilding, managing director at NEMA Ltd, says: “Aiming for, and indeed maintaining, the highest possible standards is an absolute necessity for us. We were committed to investing heavily in our inspection facilities, and had already identified areas where we felt improvements could be made.”

Companies involved in the aerospace industry face very stringent inspection requirements. These needs can be time consuming, putting a bottleneck on production, reducing productivity and, ultimately, costing money. In some cases, they may even provide a barrier to dealing with some of the larger tier-one companies.
With the IM series, more accurate measurements can be made and, in a short space of time, bottlenecks can be eliminated and costs reduced, says the company.
“With new equipment and a controlled environment, we felt the IM series was a key device for us to acquire,” continues Wilding. “In a nutshell: it matched our needs perfectly.”
The IM series image dimension measurement system was selected because of its range of specialist measurement tools, its built-in dimensional reporting feature and its speed of operation, among other criteria. These features all play a role in NEMA’s design, development and repair of electric motors and electro-mechanical assemblies. In addition, the image-measurement system allows NEMA personnel to measure more accurately than before.
“This Keyence device has proved essential to satisfy the needs of our varied customer base, which includes a number of tier-one aerospace companies,” concludes Wilding.
