Add Surface Profile Measurement (GD&T) Services

In the manufacturing process, many products require components crafted with extreme precision. This can be difficult to achieve in the case of highly complex surfaces. Luckily, there are ways of achieving this high level of accuracy with Cross Precision Measurement services.

Through utilizing Surface Profile Measurement (or Profile of a Surface), we can measure the profile of a component or part’s surface in accordance with a CAD model or an engineering drawing. This allows us to control slight changes in the component’s surface through using a virtual surface and working from that.

Profile of a surface can be used to replace form controls (flatness, cylindricity, circularity, and straightness), orientation controls (parallelism, perpendicularity, and angularity), and create a 3-dimensional equivalent of line profile tolerances.

At Cross Precision Measurement, we can add profile of a surface services to any existing inspection process we’re performing for your operation. It can easily be integrated with a number of other inspection services and performed to ensure your components are as close to model as possible (while also increasing manufacturing speed). Contact us today to learn more or to add surface profile measurement (profile of a surface) services to your next inspection.

Are You Sure Your Readings Are Accurate?

Being able to trust your readings is a necessary component to a successful production process. If your readings are off, you could be losing valuable time and money without realizing it. That’s where Cross Inspection services come in.

We work with all of our customers individually to design custom inspection services based on their unique needs and production processes. No matter what you’re producing, you need to be able to rely on your process and your products. Cross Inspection services for manufacturers is designed to provide just that. With Cross, you can trust your readings and your product.
