Non-Contact Measurement at ALSTOM

ALSTOM in Salzgitter, Germany, is one of the leading suppliers of complete railway solutions and delivers motor units, wagons and locomotives as well as state-of-the-art control and monitoring systems. In order to achieve a higher fitting accuracy in the production of front FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) hoods and in car lining, Alstom makes use of the non-contact measurement system DPA from AICON. Alstom particularly appreciates the unlimited mobility of the system and its flexible application possibilities.


Quality Control on a Large Scale

Gas turbines with dimensions of up to 13 meters in length, 5 meters in height and weighing up to 400 tons: components of this magnitude are the core business of the Siemens factory in Berlin-Moabit. From here, the high-tech components are delivered to power plants around the world where they must meet the highest requirements. Extremely high combustion temperatures, large centrifugal forces as well as vibrations and transient loads - the gas turbines are exposed to highly demanding operating conditions. Exact dimensional accuracy is therefore of prime importance in the production of gas turbines and their components. Steel components must be machined evenly in order to ensure maximum stability. The data for the CAD comparison is obtained with AICON's MoveInspect DPA.


3D Measuring in Window Production for Luxury Yachts

The manufacturing of windows for top of the range yachts is very demanding as the windows are curved around multiple axis with changing radius. For measuring the shape and dimensions of a window frame, the mobile 3D industrial 3D measuring system DPA is the ideal solution and it has proven its suitability in practice.
