Q-PLUS is located at 13765 Alton Parkway, Unit E, Irvine, California in the heart of the larger Irvine Spectrum business park, part of what has become known as the Tech Coast. Our expansive facility is amply equipped and staffed to support the broad range of services we offer and products we sell. Our sealed laboratory is isolated from the rest of our facilities and fully environmentally controlled via dedicated control systems. Much of our customer's work is proprietary in nature. Accordingly, all associated confidentiality requirements are strictly adhered to. The security of our customers' interests is given the very highest priority.
Our laboratory employs a vast spectrum of available and proprietary technologies including numerous manual and automatic CMMs, many with multi-sensor capabilities, and high-resolution mass scanning. Sensoring includes many contact and non-contact methods including variable pressure touch-trigger and continuous contact probes, vision with advanced edge detection and articulated lighting, laser, white-light fringe pattern, ultrasonic, hall-effect, and variable reluctance transducer. We can measure with resolutions below .000001 of an inch, lengths over 30 feet long, parts weighing over 1 ton, data collection at rates in the thousands of points per second, on materials ranging from paper to manmade sapphire.

March 2017: Did you know that Q-PLUS Labs has significant CT Scanning capabilities, specifically tailored to your application? For dimensional inspection, testing, or reverse engineering, our lab has the expertise to accurately measure large or small sized parts and assemblies. We provide high quality CT Scanning data, post processed into the information or results that you need (such as inspection reports or 3D CAD models). We are experienced in tackling projects with parts or assemblies containing many internal features, even those where nondestructive inspection is mandatory in order to gain access for conventional measurement or for other uses such as imaging and failure analysis.

January 2017: Q-PLUS Labs expands its extensive nano measurement capabilities with the introduction of a new laser confocal microscope for non-contact measurement. Using supremely high accuracy laser scanning, this system is extremely versatile and able to perform color profilometry as well as precise measurements down to .5 nanometers (500 picometers)! The system's speed of data acquisition has an incredibly fast response time and can characterize surfaces for accurate measurement results with high-resolution and low noise on a variety of objects, even almost to the "equator" on difficult to measure spherical shapes!
