|Analysis of European Dimensional Metrology Equipment Market, Forecast to 2022|
|Internet of Things and Advancements in Technical Capabilities will Open a Plethora of Opportunities for Inline as well as Portable/Handheld Metrology in the Future|
Traditionally, dimensional metrology was viewed as just another measurement inspection activity in manufacturing. However, with advances in technology and with the evolution of smart factory, the past decade has seen a drastic revolution in dimensional metrology equipment. Different categories within the dimensional metrology equipment market are Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM), Optical Digitizers & Scanners (ODS), Vision Measuring Machines (VMM), Form Measuring Machines (FMM), Measurement Gages (MG) and Calipers & Micrometres (C&M).
End users in this competitive market demand advanced metrology services in order to minimize errors and improve product quality and lifecycle. Hence, dimensional measuring techniques are becoming more sophisticated. Additionally, manufacturers in the end-user industries such as automotive and aerospace demand stringent quality inspections and have incorporated dimensional metrology equipment as a key enabler for improved productivity.
