Zeiss Industrial Quality Solutions has opened its latest metrology services center in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, near Chicago.

“We continue to invest in new facilities like Buffalo Grove to offer a solution-based approach for local manufacturers. This additional Midwest location offers contract measuring services, support, training and project management,” says Al Chiasson, vice president of applications, aftermarket and metrology services for Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology LLC. Zeiss offers metrology services in several regional areas including Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, Irvine, Minneapolis and Nashville.

“We have a lot of customers in the Chicago area, and we’re excited to have a local presence to support them,” says Doug Fitzgerald, business manager of metrology services. “Beyond the measuring services, this facility allows us to offer our customers in the area several types of software training, including the different Calypso levels and the powerful PiWeb reporting software that connects machines together to control and analyze quality data.”

On-site engineers onsite are trained to provide programming, consulting and specialized training. A broad range of contact and optical measurement systems and sensors are available, including the Micura, which features a larger measuring range.
