Technical Excellence – Measuring Performance

Nordell offer additional value added quality management capabilities where required.


Our Vision Measuring (VMM) and Co-Ordinate measuring (CMM) machines allow us to check exact measurements on some of the most complex parts ensuring we always manufacture parts to your specification. Nordell archive real time data to provide us performance data over time.


VMM ( Vision Measuring Machines)


VMM are a Non-contact type of measuring machine which use Optics as the source of inspection. Typically small light weight components with high accuracy are the best applications for such devices.


The Nordell VMM gives us Statistical Process Control. *Statistical Process Control (SPC) is an industry-standard methodology for measuring and controlling quality during the manufacturing process. Quality data in the form of Product or Process measurements are obtained in real-time during manufacturing.


The VMM provides repeatability of measurements to 1 micron. This information is used to manage our tooling preventative maintenance programme ensuring your tool is always kept in peak condition and parts always conform to your specification keeping any complaints and waste to a minimum.


CMM (Co-Ordinate measuring)


The Nordell coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is a device that measures the geometry of physical objects by sensing discrete points on the surface of the object with a probe. Various types of probes are used in CMMs, including mechanical, optical, laser, and white light. Depending on the machine, the probe position may be manually controlled by an operator or it may be computer controlled. CMMs typically specify a probe’s position in terms of its displacement from a reference position in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system.


Like our VMM, the CMM provides measurements to 1 micron accuracy and is typically used on larger parts.
