As quality processes become more complex with more requirements from each industry, you realise that completing the tasks in-house is becoming a costly exercise and it’s slowing your production down. At this point, outsourcing your measurement is the ideal solution.
With growing production lines and a lack of inspectors and machines, quality assurance is something that is starting to be invested in more and more due to the rigorous standards that are required in industry today. There are a few reasons you would choose to outsource your measurement:
Expertise and Skills
An engineer that has been trained solely in the use of Coordinate Measuring Machines for inspection purposes is someone that has gained the skills and confidence over a number of years. This means that the benefit of having an individual or company undertake your measurement for you, means that any questions can be answered quickly and confidently, alongside any component or measurement process questions. The expertise that the operator has is a huge advantage of outsourcing your measurement.
The cost of having your own quality department full of the most up to date, ideal measurement equipment can be a costly investment. There’s the cost of the machine, the operator and the overheads for the machine to consider. If you outsource measurement to an inspection lab, they have a dedicated team that will be able to complete your measurement work efficiently and provide inspection reports with a smaller cost than having your own department completing the work.
