25 students from the University of the Basque Country visited on 19th and 20th of November the Trimek facilities located in Altube (Álava). The company, which manufactures equipment for dimensional control and provides advanced services for industrial metrology, welcome these students of Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering in order to help them to expand their theoretical knowledge imparted in classroom about dimensional metrology, subject which they are currently studying in their second year.
As part of the Metrological Unit of Innovalia, along with Unimetrik and Datapixel, Trimek offers a wide range of products and solutions focused on quality control and inspection online. During the visit, the engineers acquired knowledge at firsthand about the M3 Portable system that scans, measures, and shares 3D information and distributes it efficiently, working on the production line itself. As well as conventional equipment, they could see how to handle easily and intuitively the M3 software, a comprehensive solution for scanning and information management quality.
According to Naiara Ortega, lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering who accompanied the students, “this practice improves the vision that students have about the dimensional metrology work which actually takes place in a real facility, outside the university world.”
The visit has been coordinated by Mikel Cortabitarte, Commercial Manager at Innovalia Metrology, which noted the necessity for students to see firsthand the field of dimensional metrology. “Although it seems to be a “dark” area, there have been significant progress in the last fifteen years which have enabled metrology to provide of a significant added value.”
