The Challenge

"For us it’s about the quality. We need to be able to provide the customer with results we’re confident in."

In incredibly competitive industries such as aerospace, medical, and packaging, customers want instant results – but they also need results they can rely on. The Torus Group, a bespoke metrology company providing automated metrology solutions for internationally renowned names like Coca-Cola, Rolls-Royce, and GlaxoSmithKline, understand that implicitly.

Dean Richardson, an Inspection Services Engineer at Telford, UK-based Torus, said: “Our customers expect a quick turnaround – their biggest issue is ‘how quickly can we get these results back?'”

“For us it’s about the quality. We need to be able to provide the customer with results we’re confident in.” When a loyal client came forward with a metrology challenge that Torus could not resolve using its previous methods, it knew something had to change.

The OGP Solution

The group turned to world-leading multisensor measurement equipment provided by OGP UK, whose SmartScope® systems employ optimum-performance sensors and probes to complete the work of traditional coordinate measuring machines, as well as laser scanners and profile projectors, with no compromise on quality. From a single reference point the technology is able to collect detailed data and gauge the characteristics of even the most demanding components and features, and it does so faster and more reliably than anything else in the marketplace.


The Results

Owing to its versatility and affordability, an OGP SmartScope Flash 500 was the perfect solution for the Torus Group. Designed for use on the production shop floor, its advanced and automated multisensor capabilities guarantee both speed and the highest levels of measurement accuracy, contributing directly to a higher throughput.

Mr. Richardson said: “The major factor for us was that one of our long-standing customers had a very specific issue where with our previous equipment we could not access a part feature. The lighting just wasn’t good enough. The OGP in terms of the balance between speed and the lighting capabilities was perfect for that solution – it’s been a good purchase and has proven that it was the right one.” “The hardware is absolutely fantastic. We struggled with our previous equipment in the sense that we would occasionally have to go back and re-set a part of the program, but that’s not something we’ve ever had to do with the OGP.”
