Dimensional Metrology

Aerosud Dimensional Metrology is focused on providing accurate metrology services.

Our Dimensional Metrology division is in the process of acquiring SANAS accreditation and approvals for dimensional instrument calibration.

Metrology applications in the industrial sector increasingly demand pinpoint accuracy.

​With these high standards non-negotiable we offer dimensional inspection with accuracy and repeatability from 3μm.  A fixed measurement length of up to 8 meter and unlimited size portable measurement with laser scanning capability.

Derick Bruce

Derick Bruce is a research and development engineer who joined Aerosud’s Research and Development department in January 2019.


His journey with Aerosud initially started in 2018 as he conducted his final year research and thesis as an engineering student. After completing his B.Eng Mechanical engineering degree at the North-West University, passing his thesis (Cum Laude), he joined the Research and Development team in January 2019.

Quality control formed part of his responsibilities since the beginning of his career, first at Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and later at Metrology.


Currently, his primary objective is to align and maintain Aerosud’s metrology operations with the ISO standard.

Mark Botha

I have 5 years of experience in quality assurance and have been involved in Metrology for 4 years. As an experienced Metrologist in the Automotive and Aviation field, I have had the great opportunity to practice work using casting, machined, sheet metal, and plastic components for fixtures and R&D projects, verifying fixtures, first-off projects, and inspection of product testing.


I worked with Aerosud for the past 3 years before finally joining the team in Jan 2021. I took the role of a Metrologist, being responsible for machine programming, quality assistance, and key feedback.


I am also proficient in Catia/CAD in designing, reverse engineering, and manipulation of CAD for ease of use for CMM programming.

Janneke Gouws

Started with training at Aerosud in 2020 in the Metrology team.

I become a Coordinate Measuring Machine Operator and Junior metrologist assistant in 2021. I am eager to learn more and have a passion for working in Metrology.
