A First at the Trade Fair Control: France with Joint Booth in Stuttgart / Germany
The French industry for measuring and inspection systems excels by a large variety of products intended for numerous applications such as civil engineering, aircraft industry, chemical industry, food industry, as well as the energy and transport sector – selling markets for this industry. The essential market leaders in this field are international groups such as Itron, Schlumberger, Zodiac Aerospace or other major French groups such as Thales and Safran. Nonetheless, the industry also includes many independent micro as well as small and medium-sized companies: Many of them boast a specific know-how enabling them to become established in France and abroad. In general, these companies are specialising in top activities and established in niche markets.
Mesure Systems 3D – Three-dimensional Inspection Systems in the Production Line
For example: Mesure Systems 3D. The company has many customers from the high-tech industry: Airbus, Audi, Boeing, Bombardier, Porsche, Volkswagen, Skoda, and Siemens. MS3D develops and installs solutions for non-contact three-dimensional inspection of geometric compliance. For large batches of industrial components, these inspections are effected directly in the production line with very short cycle times.
STIL – Highly Efficient Optical Instruments
The STIL Company exhibits in Stuttgart, too. It is a global player in the field of chromatic confocal sensing. STIL has developed two product families of point sensors (CHR and CCS) and one family of line sensors (MPLS) on the basis of chromatic confocal imaging. The high-resolution non-contact sensors of STIL meet the requirements of metrological applications irrespective of whether microtopography, analysis of geometries and textures, roughness measurements, or Reverse Engineering are concerned. STIL offers self-contained chromatic confocal sensors as well as a "turn-key" 3D measuring station (product designation "Micromesure") which is fitted with a highly precise sensing system and a sophisticated software.
