Measure Anything 2019 Review

Posted on: October 18th, 2019 by Steven No Comments

Manchester Metrology returned to co-host ‘Measure Anything’ for the 3rd time earlier this month and much like previous years, the event was deemed a tremendous success alongside many leading metrology companies. 

Working with the likes of FARO, Alicona, Aberlink, Amfax, Optimax and NPL, Manchester Metrology oversaw the action-packed event including various technology demonstrations showcasing how industries can enable faster and more accurate 3D documentation. 

The 70+ attendees were given unique opportunities to speak with market metrology experts directly as well as insights into new ways of improving product quality during production, design and planning phases with the use of metrology technologies. These technologies were presented through live demonstrations throughout the day, with visitors keen to probe, scan and measure any parts they had brought with them. 

At Manchester Metrology’s stand, visitors were able to see the Peel 3D™ in action. This particular piece of equipment is the most straight-forward 3D scanner. It simply lets you develop high-quality 3D scans of a variety of different sized objects while keeping your project on a budget. It can scan most items directly without any preparation as it recognises the shape of objects automatically. 

Thank you to all that attended ‘Measure Anything’ and making it the success it was. We are already looking forward to hosting our next Metrology Networking Day, of which we will announce details on our website closer to the time.
