When the Bielsko-Biała factory opened in 2012, plant managers drew on their own experience when it came time to select the coordinate and surface measuring systems. In 2001, the company introduced a ZEISS PRISMO ultra coordinate measuring machine at its site in nearby Czechowice-Dziedzice. Word of the high precision and reliability of this system quickly spread throughout the company. Another advantage of the ZEISS PRISMO, DURAMAX and ACCURA II: the contact sensor scans and quickly captures the entire geometry of the part. Since the introduction of the SURFCOM 5000 surface measuring instrument a few months ago, the company has been able to measure roughness of less than 0.1 micrometer. If any problems occur, the measuring technicians can contact ZEISS service staff in Poland around the clock, who are just 50 kilometers away.
