Due to the ever-changing metrology industry and new measurement products hitting the market, Status Metrology has diversified its metrology product range with Chotest.
As the sole UK distributor and partner for Chotest technology, Status, based in Derbyshire, can immediately offer a range of innovative, cutting-edge optical measurement solutions in the form of their VX8000 series of Flash Measuring Machines.
Richard Newhouse, sales and marketing director at Status Metrology said: “The Chotest VX8000 series of flash measuring machines are excellent. They’re capable of achieving fast dimensional measurement by one-key operation and they’re highly reliable and extremely user friendly – anyone can use them. We’ve tested other market-leading products and we’d say the Chotest machines are as good as, if not better, than the costlier alternatives.”
He continued: “Partnering with Chotest to bring these products to the UK as their sole distribution partner is a great move for us as a forward-thinking metrology solutions provider and a fantastic opportunity for our customers.
“Any manufacturing business that currently measures small components with comparators, micrometers, microscopes etc. can replace these instead with a Chotest machine from Status to reduce errors and significantly cut inspection times, leading to more components measured and greater profits.”
The first Chotest product from the VX8000 series that Status is able to offer is the VX8200. It features a telecentric optical lens with high depth of field: ±3μm large field without stitching; ±1.5μm high precision without stitching; ±(5+0.02L)µm large field with stitching; and ±(3+0.02L)µm high precision with stitching.
Trading for 40 years, Status is synonymous with high quality metrology services, machines, software and support. The company has been an exclusive strategic partner with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence since 1999.
Chotest is a high-tech enterprise integrating research, development, production and sales committed to the design and production of precision measuring and calibration technology.
