From Breda, Arkel, Bodegraven and our main office in Oirschot we are working with about 50 employees and the newest measurement equipment on high end measurement solutions.
Quality inspection, 3D scanning and (reverse) engineering have been key terms of our work for over 30 years. Accuracies starting from 1 micrometer and more are no issue at all. We work fast and have a flexible attitude to work. If desired, we can measure at your location, wherever that is. You can count on clear measurement results, with a comprehensible measurement report, tailored to your needs.

Metrology

The study of measurements, of sizes, measurement processes and measurement errors. The term comes from the Greek; metros = size; logos = word.

Productinspection – know where you stand

When manufacturing products, it is important to comply with the product specifications. Coenradie Metrology helps out many manufacturers, in various industries. With the most modern equipment and software, our highly trained employees ensure extremely accurate measurement results. You will receive these results in a clear report, supported with images which are easy to understand.

Expertise through experience and education
Our measurement specialists have a technical background and are broadly trained including AUKOM, the worldwide standard for 3D measurement technology. The Coenradie Metrology team has extensive experience in many different product areas. Thinking along with the customer is therefore a matter of course. Their knowledge guarantees a perfect translation of product specifications into concrete measurement results.

Your wishes are paramount
You are welcome in our conditioned measuring lab. We work with extremely accurate measuring equipment such as the Faro laser tracker, the 8-axis 3D ScanArm and our Leitz CMM. This coordinate measuring machine (CMM) has an accuracy of no less than 0.9 microns, with this we can meet your highest requirements. With a Mitutoyo clamping system, the most diverse products can be clamped perfectly. Because we have mobile measuring equipment, we can also measure at your site.

Reverse engineering – much more than just a 3D copy

If you want to recreate or adjust an existing object, it all starts with 3D scanning and 3D measuring. This produces a model for example that is suitable for basic 3D printing. However, this “quick & dirty” method has major drawbacks. Any and all deviations in the object are also copied, which in many cases is not the intention. It is also not possible to make modifications and variations: What you see is what you get. 

High quality results
That is why Coenradie works very differently. We start with a very accurate scan and 3D measurement of the object. The result is a point cloud consisting of millions of points. With the help of software such as Polyworks and RevEng we convert this point cloud to a mesh model, which shows an exact 3D copy of the object. We then use the mesh model as an underlay and built a 3D CAD model with our High-end CAD software – Siemens NX – this way a very tight result is achieved.

Fully customizable
This file can be used directly in numerous processing options such as milling machines or a casting process. Adjustments to the object can be easily made. It is possible to make a technical drawing with all important sizes and tolerances. Our working method gives you a 3D model that meets the intentions of the designer, in which all errors have been digitally repaired, and in which there are no limitations to making changes and further improvements.
