“The entire team is professional, courteous, knowledgeable and most importantly skilled at
what they are selling. When I am ready to upgrade my equipment, I come to them with a
host of questions and what ifs. They are always quick to respond, patient and put my mind
at ease about the technology associated with each purchase.I have been a satisfied
customer for more than 5 years and recently purchased our second InspecVision system
to keep up with John Deere’s demand for quality. With our 2 InspecVision systems, we
continue to be confident in the parts we send out and use at John Deere.”

“I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for products and services.
The InspecVision is a great tool in which we have really put to use in the last year. In
moving to a new facility, we were tasked with having to re-validate every flat part made.
We have also introduced new product within our facility and every flat part has also been
verified with the InspecVision. In other words, this is a piece of equipment that is used
every day.

We chose the largest model (P360.50) with dual cameras, so we are able to measure
longer parts, up to 118” in length. This reduces the amount of time that we would spend
“scanning” and merging the parts in our inspection process. The greatest benefits for us
are the accuracy, the user interface, and the speed in which we can inspect parts.
As far as support, the training provided by Colin Hart was exceptional. He understands the
product inside and out and is able to answer any question thrown his way. Also, he is
always helpful over the phone. Whether it is getting through and understanding a software
upgrade or working through an issue or new inspection technique, we have always been
satisfied when we hang up the phone.”

“We have over 16 CNC turret punching machines, 2 turret/laser combo machines and a
free standing laser machine. We use the InspecVision machine to verify the output from
all these machines!"

“It takes just a fraction of a second for the overhead digital camera to take a picture of the
part and a few minutes for the Planar software to compare the measured data against the
Catia CAD model from which the CNC routing cycle was derived.”

“A recent RCR Laser quality assurance initiative has resulted in the commission of a
valuable piece of equipment, the Planar 65.25 Component Measuring Machine (CMM).
This latest development in CMM technology allows for accurate component measurement
to within 0.025mm.

RCR Laser primarily uses this unit for checking ‘firstoff’ components and for bulk
production control checks. One of the features that contribute to better customer service is
the ability to quickly reverse engineer components from customer samples, resulting in
faster turn around of customer requests.

High accuracy of the unit allows for more precise control of laser calibration and drive

tuning maintenance. Overall this CMM provides more consistently accurate parts
production and lower instances of non-conformance.”

"The Planar machine has reduced our inspection time by 80%. We inspect about 90% more
parts than before and the payback was around 2 years. The support has been immediate 
and perfect. We have recommended the Planar machine to other sheet metal manufacturers 
in our area. It is very easy to maintain, has a very low fault rate and works well in factory 
floor conditions."

"The Opti-Scan has a good price to performance ratio, it is very fast to check the dimensional 
quality of a component and the system is extremely easy to use! Using the 3D deviation map 
you can easily and quickly see where you have too much or too little material, and how you 
can correct the errors."

"The Planar machine has enabled us to provide a much more rigorous inspection process than
we could offer in the past...it has proved to be a valuable asset and has provided us with
increased opportunities. In addition to inspecting parts we are also able to use the machine to
create a DXF file from either a finished part or from a drawing.

Our staff have found the machine to be quite simple to use and support has always been
excellent...we would recommend the Planar machine to another company."

"We were measuring by hand before and this was really time consuming, it was also too inaccurate, slow and not traceable. [The Planar System is] a lot simpler and quicker than before, we save 10-15 minutes per component and our results are now traceable.

The percentage of parts measured has increased. Even freeform geometries that could not have been measured before are now measured. Machine operators and metal sheet workers typically use the machine...we trained the workers internally and we can say that the 2D measuring machine and software is easy to use."

"At Hatco we have state of the art Lasers and Turrets for cutting and punching metal, state of the art bending and forming equipment and we are always working towards higher quality levels in our products and more efficiency in the process. We have accomplished both with MMT's InspecVision. We now have the same level of state of the art inspection equipment and it has helped improve our efficiency.

Our old vision system took on average 3 to 4 minutes to complete an inspection and our new InspecVision will do the same inspection in a matter of seconds saving valuable time for production. We also have an added capability that we never had before, we now have the ability to measure 3D parts. This has added tremendous capability to our 1st piece inspection procedure. Overall I am extremely satisfied and very happy that we made a choice to go with MMT [US Distributor] and their high quality equipment."

"We ordered a new inspection device from MMT [US Distributor] in 2009 and to date, couldn’t be happier. The new InspecVision P220.50 has provided our team of engineers and manufacturing personnel with a highly integrated system of perfecting and double checking every product we produce. The computerized technology on our specific piece of equipment is allowing us to not only guarantee satisfaction with our finished product, it makes everyone at our company proud to offer the products we offer.”

"Before using the Planar machine we used traditional measuring instruments like gauges. Compared to our old inspection method the Planar machine was not difficult to justify...the Planar machine is easy to use...and our inspection time has reduced by 50-70%.”
