iGPS Speeds Up Process and Reduces Rework and Scrap

As most other systems require a significant setup time (physical instrument setup, measurement object preparation, instrument warm up), users simply pick the measurement probe of choice and start collecting data. A single iGPS installation setup serves as many users as desired, with an unlimited number of receivers. This allows shipbuilding manufacturers to easily add operators for difficult jobs, or to speed up the data collection process.

The collaboration between 7D Kinematic Metrology and the ship manufacturer confirmed that iGPS is looking at a promising future in shipbuilding industries worldwide. 7D iGPS is a robust LVM metrology solution that was originally developed for use in aerospace. In addition, the system offers superior flexibility and ease of use.
