Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology celebrated the grand opening of the West Coast Tech Center in Irvine, California on April 6-7. Set up as a production inspection facility with metrology systems in a support role, the two-day event offered visitors demonstrations on palletizing applications and investigative metrology work. The official ribbon cutting ceremony took place April 6. "The goal in opening this 3,800 square-foot facility in Irvine, California is to get closer to our customers in this region while providing local support in growing markets," says Drew Shemenski, manager of the West Coast Tech Center. "Not only does this facility allow us to offer traditional hardware support, but it can also help us focus on a higher level connecting machines together through software to manage inspection requirements and data."
The center offers a range of metrology technology including optical, touch scanning, CT X-ray and measuring software. It also has a variety of surface form and geometry systems and in-house measuring services, software training and application support.
