Zoller has joined the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research and Development (OMIC R&D) to support industry developments in advanced metals manufacturing through the combination of resources and knowledge.

Zoller has joined OMIC R&D (Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research and Development), a collaborative established with Boeing leadership. Zoller, a tool presetting, measuring, inspection and software management supplier, is contributing a Titan tool measuring machine to OMIC.

“Zoller brings weight to OMIC R&D’s inspection and measuring capabilities, bolstering the strength of our partnership model. Their voice is critical to our efforts to help manufacturers increase their ability to quickly and effectively evaluate the quality of their products,” says Craig Campbell, executive director of OMIC R&D.

OMIC R&D’s mission involves bringing together manufacturing companies and higher education. Faculty and university students undertake applied research to solve production problems while training the next generation of engineers and technologists to meet demand for skilled workers in advanced metals manufacturing.

Zoller will be bringing some of its best capabilities to OMIC R&D as it seeks to solve the industry’s challenges,” says Zoller’s Michael Gallier, regional sales manager for the Pacific Northwest. “We are committed to excellence, and it is clear that is OMIC’s focus as well. We look forward to working together with a strong, diverse group of industry and academic partners and are confident that Zoller’s contribution will impact the future of metals manufacturing.”  


  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.
