Trend Technologies Opens New Metrology Laboratory

New Metrology Laboratory Opens in our Ireland Facilty

A new in-house metrology laboratory has opened at our manufacturing facility in Mullingar. The temperature controlled facility has been equipped with the latest Global Performance coordinate measuring machine (CMM) by Hexagon Metrology, an OGP SmartScope, CubePro 3D printer, and a large range of other measuring equipment.

The CMM and related measuring equipment will be used as part of our product validation process to ensure products are manufactured to specification in order to meet customer’s exacting dimensional requirements. The 3D printer provides us with the capability to design and manufacture support fixtures required for component anchoring to ensure dimensional precision.

Trend Technologies Global Director of Corporate Quality, Marie O’Toole said “The Global Performance CMM combined with 3D printer are welcome additions to our metrology laboratory. We have a deep understanding of the medical and automotive markets, and the need to meet exacting product requirements and comply with international standards and regulatory guidelines. Having the laboratory in-house is a huge benefit to our customers, as it means we can perform all inspections in a timely manner. This supports and enhances the NPI process and ensures speed to market for new products, while guaranteeing their dimensional conformance.”

In addition to product validation, Trend Technologies has expertise in product design and development, tooling and automation, project management, supply chain management, and also offers a range of post-moulding services.
