First Article Inspection

First article inspection and individual part measurement for industry

The sampling of components from any kind of manufacturing is one of our strengths. Our trained employees are specialists in geometric product specifications (GPS for short). In addition to quality, the lead time for a measurement is the most important factor in initial sampling. Today the measurement programs and reports are prepared offline in advance. When the components arrive for initial sampling, they are digitized immediately, and the report can be created within a few hours.

  • Digitization of the components with CT, fully automatic evaluation overnight, report generation (ISIR initial sample test report, VDA report, Gage R&R, MFU machine capability) including internal quality inspection and dispatch by e-mail or web server in the morning.
  • Material and shape independent and is non-destructive.
  • Experience in plastics and mold making.
  • Storage of components is possible.

Areas of application

  • Prototype approval and serial tool approval
  • VDA cover sheet sampling
  • Tool relocation
  • Revalidation of components and production processes
  • Parallel measurement of different individual parts on several identical machines and thus complete sample measurement in a short lead time is possible.
  • Multi-sensor technology up to a size of 500x500x300 mm enables inspection with optical and tactile sensors (Application examples: large circuit boards, embossed parts, Punched parts such as stator sheets or rotor sheets).


  • Tactile measuring devices
  • Optical metrology
  • Computer tomography
  • Tool measurement with high-precision machines such as the "Leitz PMM"
  • Fast measuring machines with rotary, swivel units and high-precision devices with a rigid probe system - all equipped with scanning sensors.
  • Reporting in customer templates, Excel VDA, IQS

Advantages and application possibilities

Drawings with several thousand features in the shortest possible time.

Subsequent sampling can be carried out quickly according to the program template.

Advantage through parallel operation at several evaluation stations.

Knowledge of various standards such as ISO8015, ISO14405, ASME and others.
