Dimensional Metrology

Aerosud Dimensional Metrology is focussed on providing accurate metrology services for the manufacturing sector.

The team consists of 5 metrologist’s with 65 years accumulative industry experience.

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.
