Lab Equipment and Capabilities

At Fallbrook Technologies, our dimensional metrology lab utilizes the latest and greatest measurement technology and inspection equipment for accurate dimensions. The highlights of our laboratory capabilities include:

Precision 3D Scanning:

With this technology, we can gather large amounts of data very rapidly which allows us to analyze surface profile over complex surfaces, summarize information with comprehensive CAD based color maps of the material, and quickly supply the answers you need. Internally, we utilize 3D scanning during prototyping to compare workpieces directly to model when we do not want to spend time or resources programming complex equipment. Often, engineers will review data in real-time utilizing screen sharing software to get to the heart of an issue as fast as possible.

Continuously Scanning CMM:

Unlike historically slow and inadequate touch-probe CMMs, our Zeiss CMM remains in constant contact with the part surface gathering hundreds or thousands of points while it traces. Utilizing automated programming, we are to produce identical inspections for dozens or even hundreds of part runs. The consistency, repeatability, and autonomy makes this CMM technology perfect for large inspection quantities. Additionally, the single digit micron accuracy makes it ideal for tight tolerance applications.
