(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati) -- Exact Metrology, a leading provider of 3D and CT scanning equipment and metrology services, now offers the GOM CT scanner—the most accurate industrial CT scanner currently on the market. The GOM CT scanner offers the highest accuracy and highest resolution of any 225kV system available today, and Exact Metrology devised the “GOM CT Challenge” to prove this.

“If a company is considering the purchase of a CT scanner, they can call us and validate the suitability, then send us a part,” says Steve Young, co-president of Exact Metrology. “We’ll scan it and send them the images. If they don’t believe the output is superior to other scanners in the 225kV range, we’ll send them $100... no strings attached.”

(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati) -- The Cincinnati Reds celebrated their 150th anniversary as the nation’s first all-professional baseball team by dedicating a pavilion outside the ballpark on May 5, 2019.

Local Cincinnati artist, Tom Tsuchiya, created relief figures of the members of the 1869 team that adorn a gazebo highlighting the site. It includes 12 bronze busts of 10 players, the club president and secretary. Tom also designed the player statues around the Great American Ball Park. The figures enshrined include Asa Brainard, pitcher/outfield; Doug Allison, catcher; Charlie Gould, first base; Charlie Sweasy, second base; Fred Waterman, third base; George Wright, shortstop; Andy Leonard, left field; Harry Wright, center field/pitcher (team captain); Cal McVey, right field; William “Dick” Hurley, substitute; Aaron Champion, club president; and John Joyce, secretary.

(Exact Metrology: Cincinnati) -- On March 28, 2019, Exact Metrology was among several companies who came to Latonia Elementary Career Day. This event was meant to introduce students to a variety of careers in health, law, manufacturing, engineering, technology, and other fields.

Fifth-grade students spent three weeks researching different careers that interested them. They learned information concerning future salary, education, and job skills. Then, students had the opportunity to speak with professionals in their chosen fields and ask questions.

Chris Lafferty, a specialist in Artec 3D's, professional-grade handheld 3D scanners and software, attended on behalf of Exact Metrology. Together with Jason Kleinhenz, marketing manager at Exact Metrology, they met with students to teach them about metrology using the Artec Leo and Geomagic Design X.

Artec Leo is the first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing with an integrated touch panel viewer. This frees users from being tied to a computer for data capture. Users can scan the object and see the 3D replica being built in real time on the screen. The 3D model can be rotated to check that all areas have been captured. The final 3D model can be directly exported to Geomagic Design X.

EVCO Plastics is an injection molding company that produces parts for myriad industries, including powered sports equipment, lawn and garden devices, agricultural and construction machinery, and medical and packaging machinery. Owing to the volume of work, coupled with the challenges of collecting and processing point-cloud data in the lab, the company turned to its supplier partner, Exact Metrology, for assistance.

Part of the EVCO strategy, according to Rich Duval, who heads the EVCO metrology lab, is “to have the ability to take a part, scan it, compare it to the CAD/CAM files, as early as possible in the process, and to allow the customer to observe how the plastic product compares to the solid model.” Duval also notes that by using scanning technology and reverse engineering, the EVCO metrology team has been able to re-create the surface of tooling where solid models don’t exist and provide these data to a tool shop for steel revisions.

EVCO’s metrology team had been researching earlier-generation scanning but saw the more advanced Romer and other brands of scanning arms in the Exact Metrology product offering.

(Exact Metrology: Brookfield, WI) -- On Sept. 16, 2015, for approximately three hours, Exact Metrology technicians performed a 3D scan of the huge South Lion that guards the entrance to the world-famous Chicago Art Institute. The subsequent STL file is being used by Chicago-based Met-L-Flo to generate 300 3D-printed miniature lions, to be displayed and provided to visitors at the upcoming FABTECH show in Chicago, Nov. 9-12, 2015.

Using their Surphaser and ARTEC scanners, Exact technicians built a 3D image, which was displayed on a huge monitor for passersby to see. As part of this event, which was sponsored by FABTECH show management, FMA president and CEO Ed Youdell introduced Exact president Dean Solberg and Met-L-Flo president Carl Dekker, who both detailed the work their companies were doing to complete this unique and interesting project.
