Acu-Gage Systems has announced that Enigma Interconnect has installed an automated 24” x 24” Acu-Gage System at its corporate manufacturing operation in Burnaby, BC. The Acu-Gage is configured with automated edge detection, full 3-Axis motion control, programmable illumination, AutoFocus, programmable zoom, and Windows based programming software. Enigma’s Acu-Gage will provide improved capability and throughput in providing first article inspection and process control data for a variety of industry applications.
John Parsons, engineering manager for Enigma Interconnect says, “The addition of the Acu-Gage automated CMM is a necessity that allows Enigma to provide our more demanding customers with the level of FAI reporting they require. The Acu-Gage allows us to take measurements and validate them against applicable tolerances much quicker than could be accomplished by hand. In some cases, these measurements are impossible for us to make using conventional hand measuring tools. We expect the Acu-Gage to be invaluable as a process set-up and monitoring tool.”
Jack Kane, Acu-Gage Systems president, said, “We are very excited and pleased to announce the addition of the Acu-Gage System to the Enigma quality program. Enigma is clearly a leader in the Canadian circuit board market, and we are honored to be partnering with them to foster their continued success. In fact, we share some common clients in the aerospace industry, and I am certain that the Acu-Gage System will be very productive asset for the Enigma team for many years to come.”
