Why Compromise With Metrology and Quality Assurance?

When it comes to metrology and quality assurance, delivering consistent results to meet standards often requires making several difficult choices. Depending on what these are, it’s highly likely that you’re going to have to compromise on something you don’t want to. Here at Status, we don’t believe in compromise.

Take a closer look at the infographic below that dives into several choices faced and how Status ensures you don’t have to make the choice.


Do I choose a solution that’s affordable over the capabilities it delivers?

Our used CMM machines are fully refurbished, retrofitted with the latest technology and repainted. Not only are our used machines available for a fraction of the cost of a new machine but they often match and sometimes exceed the performance of the latest showroom offerings.

Do I choose a new machine over a used machine because of the warranty?

With Status, this is a choice you don’t have to make. All of our machines, new or used, come with a 12 month warranty as standard (unusual for most used CMM providers).


Do I choose a software solution that saves time or gives me greater control over my measurements?

Thanks to our strategic partners, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, we’re experts in the World’s greatest CMM software – PC-DMIS. Implementing PC-DMIS will give you greater measurement control while also saving time, cutting costs and improving your productivity.

Do I choose new software that will boost productivity or stick with my current solution due to my existing measurement programs?

While PC-DMIS is proven to save time and boost quality department productivity, many are afraid to make the leap due to the fear of losing access to existing measurement programs. However, we utilise a unique interface that enables backwards compatibility to the main measurement programs, giving you peace of mind when you switch.


Do I choose to train CMM operators in-house or externally?

Our CMM and PC-DMIS training solutions are extremely flexible. We’re able to carry out training sessions at your premises or at our state-of-the-art training facilities which features a Global Performance 7-10-5 machine, running PC-DMIS 2020 and two other labs with a further 3 high-quality machines.

Do I choose a sub-contract measurement service that’s quicker or one that’s more accurate?

With two UKAS accredited laboratories and being located just off the M1, Junction 25, we can consistently meet the most rigorous of schedules and deadlines, time and again, with the highest degrees of accuracy.
