Nasmyth Ferndown, part of the global engineering Nasmyth Group, has made a major investment in new equipment which will significantly enhance its component inspection and design process.

The new Hexagon Absolute laser arm will improve the efficiency of the inspection process by approximately 50%. Providing much greater accuracy across more dimensions supported by the RS5 Laser Scanning/Probe kit, compared to traditional equipment, enables a more accurate comparison with drawing requirements. The software can also automatically produce full-dimensional reports, saving a great deal of time compared to the current manual creation of such reports. This new equipment will also help Nasmyth Ferndown to further enhance its international reputation for the reverse engineering of legacy components for the aviation industry.

For aircraft dating back to the 1950s, where drawings are not available, the only way to remake a particular part is to physically redesign it from a sample. This process will now be significantly easier with the introduction of the latest scanning equipment. Nasmyth Ferndown is a dynamic and forward-thinking engineering support partner for many of the world’s leading OEMs across a range of complex sectors.
