Like the technologies that underpin their business, the services provided at Verus Metrology Partners are constantly improving and evolving.
One such service is their Sub-Contract Metrology offering, which provides a tailored inspection service, giving clients access to the experience, knowledge and technology of Verus experts on a sub-contract basis.
The company have recently revised this service to ensure that it is of optimum value for clients.
Sub-Contract Metrology is an aspect of the business that is in sharp focus as clients increasingly look for sub-contracted services – be that Dimensional Inspection, a Validation Metrology Service, Calibration & Certification or use of Inspection Machines.
SPENDING LESS CAN MEASURE UP
As part of the revision of Sub-Contract Metrology, Verus have introduced a new pricing structure based on a half-day or daily rate rather than on the number of dimensions measured.
They have also introduced price discounts on a sliding scale, applicable to all projects completed during each 30-day period throughout the year.
- A discount of 5% will be applied on the 3rd day of each project
- A discount of 10% will be applied on the 5th day of each project
- A discount of 15% will be applied on the 10th day of each project
“The new structure is more cost-effective for our customers,” says Jon Stabler, Metrology Applications Manager, who is based at Verus’ offices in the UK. “We are noticing an increased need for Sub-Contract Metrology because clients don’t have the capacity to do it themselves; perhaps because someone is sick, a machine is down or because they have an overflow of work they need to get through. Our approach is to work with clients on a partnership basis to the point that we often operate as an external department for them.
“Our clients also often need to get a second opinion. If they have parts from a supplier that they measure internally but believe might have an issue; they send it to us to get an independent check in a lab environment by OEM-certified engineers.
“Under Sub-Contract Metrology, we also do First Article Inspection Reports (FAIRs) – where a customer wants to make a part, we measure the first article that they have created so they know it is fine to start manufacturing in bulk,” says Jon.
“One of the key advantages for a client in choosing Verus Metrology Partners for Sub-Contract Metrology is that we offer a quick turnaround with high-quality reports at a very good price,” says Hazel Rooney, Metrology Manager, based in Ireland.
Sub-Contract Metrology services are available to customers under four headings:
The company provide a tailored sub-contract inspection service where experts from the Verus metrology team can provide clients with a range of specific services on a sub-contracting basis – from initial sample inspection reports (ISIR) and tool validation to measurement procedure creation and on-site metrology support.
