A high-speed, non-contact metrology and inspection platform for processing complex geometries faster than a traditional CMM.

Improve Accuracy

ZeroTouch uses a unique 5-axis architecture and best-in-class sensors, improving measurement quality.

Increase Throughput

ZeroTouch captures complex dimensional measurements in minutes. 

Advances Production

ZeroTouch rapidly performs multiple measurements simultaneously. 

A robust, non-contact metrology platform, ZeroTouch rapidly captures millions of data points to create a high-precision 3D point cloud, enabling rapid measurement of complex part geometries and precise inspection of the most intricate parts with low GRR.

Minimize Tolerance Stack Error

ZeroTouch’s unique planar air bearing design minimizes tolerance stack error. By providing extremely smooth, high-speed motion of precision stages, this near-zero friction design ensures more consistent performance, minimizing mechanical wear and improving GRR.

Advanced Analytics Integration

Through industry proven and recognized analytics software, parts can be analyzed by comparing point cloud scans with nominal CAD models and GD&T controls. Statistical process control (SPC) data can drive warnings to reduce variability and scrap.

Graphical Part Inspection Planning

Graphical, menu-driven part inspection planning tools eliminate the need for specialized programming. Plans can be launched easily by recalling the program from MES, or via an optional barcode reader.

Removing the "Programming" from Part Inspections

Production bottlenecks happen. When one station produces more than subsequent stations, the production line slows down. For the manufacturing industry, metrology is a bottleneck. But does it have to be?

3D Printed vs Machined Fixtures and ZeroTouch®

The popular narrative around 3D printing generally focuses on rapid prototyping and end-use products, overshadowing one of the greatest benefits to metrology: Creating inspection fixtures.

Speed Wins in Contact vs. Non-Contact Surface Profiling

When efficiency matters in surface morphology inspection, non-contact, optical methodologies provide the same measurement results as a conventional contact profiler but in a fraction of time.
