Facilities

Q-PLUS Labs 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.

Technologies

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 man-made sapphire.
