MAPLE GROVE, MN-Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology celebrated the official grand opening of the West Coast Tech Center (WCTC) in Irvine, CA, on Tuesday, April 6, and Wednesday, April 7. Set up as a production inspection facility with metrology systems running in a process support role, the two-day metrology event offered visitors a unique experience. Part measurement on our systems was displayed in a real-time production environment, and we demonstrated high-throughput palletizing applications, and illustrated in-depth investigative metrology work. Engaging technology conversations, product demos, tours and catered food and refreshments were continuous throughout the two-day grand opening. An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday evening.

“The goal in opening this 3,800 square-foot facility in Irvine, California is to get closer to our customers in this region while providing local support in growing markets,” says Drew Shemenski, manager of the West Coast Tech Center. “Not only does this facility allow us to offer traditional hardware support, but it can also help us focus on a higher level connecting machines together through software to manage inspection requirements and data.”

There is a wide range of metrology technology on hand at the Irvine center: optical, touch scanning, CT X-ray, and measuring software. The Metrotom 800 is an X-ray based computed tomography system specifically designed for 3-D metrology of small, complex, low-density parts made of plastic, composite materials or ceramic. The O-Inspect is a multisensor system that features both tactile and optical scanning and provides flexibility for measuring parts that approach the micro range of size.

The location and contact information for the new Tech Center is:
18 Goodyear, Suite 105
Irvine, CA 92618
Phone: (800) 327-9735
