Case Study


Apacor was facing inconsistent measurements between operators. “We also had trouble measuring more complex elements of our components, such as internal diameters, and we needed accurate measurements to ensure what we were measuring was correct.” - Jamie Doran, Production Manager at Apacor.

About The Company  - Acapor

Apacor is a pre-analytical medical diagnostics manufacturer that uses state-of-the-art quality control and robotics technology to supply high-quality components to a range of medical and veterinary companies throughout the world.

The Challenge

Apacor acquired a SmartScope Flash 200 multisensor metrology system from OGP® UK, which enhanced their capability to measure intricate and complex components with increased speed, accuracy, and consistency.

As a manufacturer of critical intricate components, Apacor needed their measurement data to be precise, reliable, and consistent. They sought to upgrade their measurement equipment to the latest technology to enhance their inspection process.

Jamie Doran, Production Manager at Apacor, explained, “The main challenge we were facing before the OGP machine was inconsistent measurements between operators. We also had trouble measuring more complex elements of our components, such as internal diameters, and we needed accurate measurements to ensure what we were measuring was correct.”

The OGP Solution - Flash 200

Apacor procured a SmartScope Flash 200 multisensor measurement system from OGP UK to ensure the precise, dependable, and consistent quality of their components.

The SmartScope Flash 200 is a unique, high-capacity benchtop multisensor measurement system designed to perform well in demanding manufacturing environments. Its sturdy construction provides stability and high accuracy, even under challenging conditions.

We approached a few different companies when looking into optical measurement technology,” said Doran. “We looked at the SmartScope Flash 200 from OGP UK which was perfect for our needs. The bed size perfectly fits all of our components and the lighting features have allowed us to measure diameters and measurements that we couldn’t measure with just a vernier.

The Results

By investing in a multisensor metrology system from OGP, Apacor has significantly improved their inspection processes and integrated the latest metrology software advancements. This upgrade allows Apacor to meet their industry's strict requirements when measuring their intricate components.
Doran noted, “The SmartScope Flash 200 has exceeded our requirements. The OGP machine gives us the ability to meet the requirements and regulations we have to adhere to and ensures that our products are of the highest quality. We originally brought it in to measure components for tools we receive to ensure they are within specifications. But we are now implementing it into our QC department to quality check our own components.

I would definitely recommend OGP to other businesses for optical measurement, not just because of the quality of the machines but the service as well. The training was fantastic. The OGP UK team went through how to set up a program and the general uses of the machine.
