Precision Industry
Maximum  accuracy - this is the key issue for everything in the precision industry. Here highly accurate, complex parts are manufactured. Every sub-micron counts. For us as well. As accuracy is our business. The manufacture of precision parts for the automotive, horology and aerospace industries is supported by coordinate measuring machines from Leitz and DEA.

And high accuracy is not only necessary for components. Portable laser tracker systems from Leica Geosystems guarantee, for instance, the exact movement of robots.





ISP Salzbergen GmbH & Co. KG
The testing institute

The internationally-operating ISP testing institute has been able to reduce the high-accuracy wear measurement procedure for engine components from two full days to just a few hours. The basis for these enormous time savings is high-accuracy Leitz range coordinate measuring machine (CMM) technology and utilisation of the QUINDOS Wear software ...
