  • Third Dimension Wins Second Coveted Queen's Award

    Third Dimension, the leading supplier of precision feature measurement solutions, is today (21 April 2017) celebrating being named winner of the Queen’s Award for Innovation - the UK’s highest accolade for business success - for GapGun, its best-selling handheld, laser-based optical measurement device.

  • Third Dimension launches pivotal new GapGun solution for fast, accurate and centred countersink measurement

    Third Dimension has launched an all new countersink measurement solution for its GapGun range. The first of its kind on the market, it can calculate the dimensions of a countersink hole to accurately predict the flushness of fasteners once fitted. What’s more, it can operate in real time on the production lines of aircraft, cars and vans, and also in the energy and marine markets.

    The patent-protected GapGun Countersink Inspection System enables the prediction of fastener flushness much faster and more accurately than mechanical gauge, with the addition of a fully auditable data trail. Tolerance bands can be pre-set, the measurement is recorded against these and then the result can be read onscreen or automatically sent to a PC to enable comparison and analysis.

  • THIRD DIMENSION LAUNCH NEW RANGE OF VIOLET LASER SENSOR HEADS

    Violet laser sensor heads extend the range of materials which can be measured by Third Dimension’s GapGun Pro and Vectro systems. Auto-makers now have a single tool for all inline gap and flush measurements, including light clusters, chrome headlights, tail lights, and all other common automotive surface finishes.

    GapGun Pro and Vectro systems replace manual, contact gauges for reliable data quality and traceability.

    Francois Froment, Third Dimension’s Head of Sales, reports high levels of early interest in the product: “I have taken the Violet Laser to automotive customers in the UK, Germany, Sweden and Belgium. There has been tremendous interest, with quality managers and production engineers alike seeing the potential for saving time and improving their manufacturing processes. This is definitely the most efficient solution in the market today.”

    The violet laser sensor heads equip end-users including OEMs, Tier 1s and Tier 2s, with the highest measurement resolution system with unrivalled usability. Due to its highly ergonomic and lightweight design, the GapGun Pro is widely accepted by operators.

    Violet laser sensor heads are a straightforward upgrade for existing GapGun Pro and Vectro customers, as they use the same VChange mechanism and do not require additional software licencing.

    Proven to work on all common automotive finishes, the violet sensor heads have now been tested in more than ten automotive factories across four continents.

  • LOCKHEED MARTIN PRESENTATION SHOWCASES GAPGUN HELPING WITH QUALITY INSPECTION OF F-35 JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER

    Lockheed Martin explained how seam validation - the process of measuring the gap and mismatch between body panels – has become a networked process meaning seam types can be measured at a faster rate, repeatedly delivering significant improvements in time saving and reducing the risk of human error.

    Quick and easy to use, GapGun takes measurements throughout Lockheed’s production line, so problems can be headed off before they arise, thereby speeding up and streamlining the production process.
