Quality assurance in the shipping industry

Optical and tactile measurement with the Shapetracer

Heavy motors & propellers

For high-precision measurement of large and heavy parts in the marine industry, such as engines or propellers, the Support Center for Ship Repair at Mokpo National Maritime University from South Korea relies on a holistic measurement solution from WENZEL.

WENZEL's long-standing partner for the region iMeasure Co, LTD once again proved to be a reliable solution provider. The Support Center produces large processing repair facilities and measuring machines, which are necessary for the repair of ships and ship components. It forms the basis for ship repairs by small and medium-sized shipbuilding and marine equipment companies in the region. iMeasure's first contact with the customer took place at the SIMTOS 2018 exhibition in Seoul. Researchers at Mokpo National Maritime University were looking for machines to start the ship repair support center and a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) LH 1210 with optical and tactile sensors. Trust was quickly built in the long-standing know-how of iMeasure's metrology experts and the quality of the WENZEL CMMs.

Mokpo National Maritime University is a world-class university. Graduates are well trained for the maritime logistics, shipbuilding and maritime IT industries.

Everything from one source

iMeasure was able to convince above all with the universal application possibilities of the LH series from WENZEL for tactile and optical measurement and the complete service. Due to the wide product range, WENZEL offers measurement solutions as a full service provider. With the "one-stop service", the specialists involved for hardware, software and service are brought together and can coordinate very well with each other. There are no delays or higher costs for the customer. The transparency of the quotation price also strengthened trust right from the start.

The SHAPETRACER 3D line scanner from WENZEL in combination with the LH 1210 coordinate measuring machine forms the ideal tool for capturing and processing point clouds. The measuring solution is ideally suited for the acquisition and processing of surfaces and contours of workpieces. The WENZEL SHAPETRACER is controlled by the WM | PointMaster software package and operates at an extremely fast scanning speed of up to 48,000 points per second and an accuracy of 20 μm.

Due to the advantages described, the measurement solution from WENZEL prevailed over well-known competitors. The project for the Support Center for Ship Repair at Mokpo National Maritime University was finally finalized in October 2020. Meanwhile, iMeasure has even opened an office at the support center. The support center in Mokpo has already gained some additional overseas repair services through the new measurement solution.
