Dimensional Inspection

Dimensional Inspection Services

Dimensional Inspection (also known as: metrology services, validation, verification, product evaluation, contract inspection and layout inspection) is performed to compare the actual condition of a manufactured part or component to the nominal condition as defined by engineering drawings and blueprints, metal or film templates (decreasingly), digital files and 3D CAD models (increasingly), or even a master tool or part.

As there are many ways to establish product definition or to define design, there are even more ways to measure and inspect the actual product manufactured. Being fully cognizant of this, Q-PLUS has amassed and developed an impressive array of state-of-the-art measuring instruments, equipment and technology.
