Some 25 years ago, the first optical measuring system specifically designed to measure round components was launched by the Group. What started as a small additional offer to the market has turned into a comprehensive product line and the standard for the turned parts industry nowadays: the TESA-SCAN range of machines, carrying the SWISS MADE label.
Since the launch, TESA has constantly developed its metrological solution of non-contact measurement in collaboration with selected key users. The major benefit of the system that enables the inspection of all common round part geometry is the ability to perform such measurements with a combination of speed, flexibility and accuracy previously not possible. Over the years, TESA has improved these key elements and has introduced the capability of measuring standard and non-standard threads, thanks to the exclusive TESA Slewing System: an inherent flexible and indisputable competitive advantage.
At present, TESA provides their customers with a complete solution and a complementary offer of two software packages to answer individual needs:
- Following a “Just click, it’s measured”-philosophy, the TESA-REFLEX Scan program is a breakthrough in turned part inspection. The TESA-SCAN 52 machine scans the part and allows for an automatic, fast measurement without prior programming as well as an automatic recognition of your existing part programs.
- In addition, if a more sophisticated approach is required, the PRO-MEASURE software, designed for the TESA-SCAN 25, 50 and 80 machines, offers a user-friendly interface and features extended capabilities to measure advanced applications, from large transmission shafts, small turned and ground components to comprehensive threads.
The industries served by the TESA-SCAN technology today include the automotive, aerospace, fluid power, instrumentation, pharmaceutical industry and many others.
