Case Study TenCate France

The final control

A member of the TenCate Advanced Composites group, TenCate Advanced Armor Europe implements unique armouring, ballistics and personal protection solutions using composites and ceramics technology. TenCate Advanced Armor Europe manufactures and assembles flat and curved plates for armour products for individuals, planes, helicopters, vehicles and ships within the European Union for military purposes and global policing applications.

The ROMER Absolute measuring arm can be used to measure the length, width, height and centre distance positions of the parts manufactured by TenCate. These consist of a combination of textiles and very robust ceramics used for armour plating, for example for the floor of a helicopter or a plane. Measuring fastening points and dimensions is crucial to ensuring that these parts are perfectly adapted to their environment.

According to Mr Pierre, inspector and deputy workshop manager, “the arm provides the customer with a guarantee of the quality of these parts. In the past, we used a slide calliper which didn’t offer the required level of precision. Today, we are able to provide the exact part requested by the customer. The ROMER arm enables us to consolidate the progress made in production quality by means of inspection.” Inspecting the kits makes it possible to take corrective action immediately if necessary. The arm is used in the final parts inspection as well as when receiving parts to identify any suspected anomaly. The...
