We now have a standard procedure for the inspection and testing of all nonstandard bespoke gauges:

  • Approved latest technical drawing showing the dimensions for inspection
  • An approved method of inspection and calibration
  • A fully detailed certificate of calibration
  • Retained raw data from the inspection process
  • A bespoke calibration management software with access for each client and a Data base of all certificates and methods of calibration.

We also calibrate and certify a wide variation of standard gauges including;

  • Go no-go gauges
  • Plug gauges
  • Pin Gauges
  • In-production checking gauges.

Through our metrology workshops at the very beginning of your new project, the Verus Precision design team will work with you and our metrology Engineers, to develop initial concepts and single station prototypes along with extensive and detailed project schedules. This process ensures a fast design and development cycle and an optimised final Inspection fixture solution.

Our Design team specialise in bespoke Metrology Inspection Fixtures for CMM and Vision systems and also verus Fixtures-1-300x200Hybrid Inspection Fixtures for use on Vision System CMMs with touch trigger capability. The Metrology Fixture can range from single station to large repeat multi-station solutions.

Our Fixtures are designed to reduce operator interaction and to allow the maximum number of measurements to be taken with the minimum number of setups. In most cases we can develop a single fixture that will allow all dimensions to be taken on any component.

We develop the concept design into final high cavitation multi-station fixtures with full 2D technical drawing and 3D models for client approval and manufacture.

  • Digital concepts
  • 2D manufacturing drawings
  • 3D model assemblies
  • Single station prototype development
  • Multi station / hybrid metrology inspection fixtures design and manufactured
  • Detailed Project schedules updated and communicated weekly to clients
  • Designed by metrology engineers for metrology engineers.



As toolmakers we pride ourselves on the quality, precision, functionality and finish of the Metrology inspection Fixtures we supply.

To ensure the fastest turn around and maximum capacity we maintain a high quality audited and approved subcontractor list. We work closely with each of our local approved subcontractors to develop close working relationships and an innovative mutually respected process of continual improvement.

This process results in the highest quality of manufacture and metrology fixture solutions that are second to none in the market.

Utilizing a full spectrum of subcontractors we have capacity and capabilities to manufacture the largest multi-station Metrology fixtures to highly complex single station inspection solutions for large or small components.

  • Highest Quality of Manufacture
  • Audited and Approved Subcontractors
  • Innovative and responsive
  • Large capacity and wide range of capabilities
  • Fast turnaround times



We strongly believe in delivering a Metrology Inspection fixture that will perform and function to the highest standards. To support this, we perform gauge R+R on all the Metrology Inspection fixtures we provide.

Once the gauge R+R has been completed, the results are loaded in to our statistical software package. Only once it has passed our strict criteria is the Metrology fixture released for delivery.

Along with the gauge R+R report, our fixtures can be shipped with a programme ready to be loaded to your CMM or Vision system metrology machine. Onsite support can also be provided for installation and Qualification.

Tests and validations of the programme can be completed and sent to you before shipping to ensure no delay in the Inspection fixture deployment.

We also Recommend Metrology Inspection Fixtures are returned for requalification on an annual basis depending on levels of use. The metrology fixtures will be inspected checked for wear and tear and a new gauge R+R carried out to re-qualify.

  • Gauge R+R carried out on all Bespoke Metrology Inspection Fixtures
  • CMM and Vision system programmes provided
  • Onsite installation and qualification
  • Ongoing support maintenance and Annual Re-qualification.


 MOLDFLOW ANALYSIS (Fill, Pack and Warp)

Flow analysis includes the filling and packing stages of the injection moulding process.

These stages produce some of the most important results for evaluating a product design for injection moulding manufacturing.

Warpage results can be used to identify areas of excessive warpage and shrinkage, referencing product drawings and tolerances, it is possible to take point to point measurements from the analysis results to ensure the critical dimensions will be within tolerance after moulding.

•     Moldflow Fill time: velocity profiles and shot size (machine specific)

•      Freeze time: time to freeze the runner, gate and part

•      Pack time & pressure: packing phase profiles (machine specific)

•      Venting requirements

•      Weld line locations

•      Volumetric shrinkage: shrinkage values for various part geometries

•      Shear rate: shear rates generated during filling and packing

•      Pressure at V/P change over

•      Injection pressure: pressure rates experienced during filling and packing

Reports and results can be tailored to specific requests for part troubleshooting.



Cooling analysis is used to evaluate and optimise cooling lane design. Working in partnership with the mould tool designer, multiple cooling designs can be analysed. This is critical to the overall process as cooling design will have an effect on part filling, freeze times, warpage and the overall cycle time.

•      Variation in coolant temperature

•      Flow rate in each cooling circuit

•      Reynolds number in each cooling circuit

•      Pressure drop along each cooling circuit

•      Surface temperature distribution: top and bottom sides of inserts and parting planes

•      Distribution of average plastic temperature at ejection time

•      Distribution of maximum plastic temperature at ejection time

•      Cavity surface temperature distribution

•      Insert temperatures

Reports and results can be tailored to specific requests for part troubleshooting.


MOLDFLOW ANALYSIS (Core Deflection & Twin Shot Moulding)

Core shift is a frequent problem with long, slender, and not necessarily thin-walled products, such as vials, test tubes, pen barrels. It is often experienced in moulds for thin-walled containers.

Core shift can result in undesirable variations in wall thickness which will affect the final shape and mechanical performance of the part. The core shift simulation provides detailed information about the movement of the mould core and its interaction with the polymer flow process as the plastic is being injected.

The overmoulding analysis consists of a 2-step process where a normal Fill+Pack analysis is performed on the first cavity (first component stage), which is then followed by a Fill+Pack analysis on the overmoulding cavity (overmoulding stage). The consecutive overmoulding stage on the second cavity uses a different material from the first analysis, and the first component temperatures are used as the initial temperatures.

•      Core deflection

•      Final core shift

•      Stress in the core

•      Re-melt zones

•      Pre-mould temperature during over moulding

•      Insert over moulding

•      Warpage of the overmoulded assembly

Reports and results can be tailored to specific requests for part troubleshooting.
