Exact Metrology recently held two open houses, one at its facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, which was attended by over 100 local area companies, and one at its Brookfield, Wisconsin, location which was attended by 70 area companies. The latter even was co-hosted with Exact’s partners, EnvisionTEC, Hexagon Metrology, PolyWorks, 3D Systems and ETI.

Hosted by Exact Co-President Steve Young, the Cincinnati event included product demonstrations of the various metrology equipment brands offered by Exact as well as the testing procedures provided as a service. Highlight of the event was the company’s new partner, EnvisionTEC, a builder of 3D printing equipment for myriad industries, for whom Exact was recently named Midwest dealer.

A variety of scanning equipment was demonstrated at the Brookfield facility. One highlight of the open house, according to Exact, was the new Leica BLK360 imaging laser scanner, a 360-degree scanner that enables high-resolution scans for a full dome in less than 3 minutes. While demonstration pieces were available to scan, attendees were able to bring in their own parts to demonstrate live 3D scanning on the screen.

EnvisionTEC was also present at the Brookfield open house.

The Brookfield open house’s agenda consisted of four breakout sessions led by experts in 3D metrology and scanning technology. During one presentation, Jason Reno of PolyWorks talked about what to expect in the industry for 2017. Another session was given by Dave Meyers, a professor affiliated with Effective Training Inc.; he instructed the audience on the use of GD&T Training (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing). Greg George, Corey Mayeda and Mike Tsand from 3D Systems led a discussion on their company’s DesignX and Geomagic software.
