Before purchasing a Vici machine, we had to use a variety of different machines, like a tridimensional, a profilometer or a roundness tester. Today, once we have created the program, the machine quickly provides all the results necessary.
Basically, we have to check material sent by our suppliers.
Once we have created the program with the VICIVISION machine, it’s a matter of seconds.
Interpump Group is the world’s largest producer of high-pressure piston pumps and leader in the hydraulics market.
The group has 8,000 employees and boasts a turnover of more than 1.3 billion Euro.
The piston pumps we produce are fruit of careful systematic experimentation and research in design.
Pioneering technology, highly automated production processes and elevated quality standards distinguish our products, making them authentic masterpieces of technology.
Over the years we have invested in lathes that can turn parts up to 1,200mm long, and with machines like these it was obligatory to invest in testing systems for the parts.
The main benefits of this machine are speed – inspections are much faster than previous manual systems – and an objective inspection of all the details, regardless of who is actually checking the part.
This machine is essential for our work because all the operators know that they can trust the results.

Achieving production confidence through measurement | Technoset Ltd
Confidence is a critical and often-cited concept in manufacturing. As businesses strive to prosper in a crowded and highly competitive marketplace, they need certainty that their processes will consistently and efficiently deliver right-first-time parts, so that order books remain full and customers keep coming back. Technoset knows that as well as anyone. For more than 40 years, the Rugby-based company has specialised in creating highly complex, precision machined components on its multi-axis turning and milling centres, using both common and exotic metals. And thanks to VICIVISION UK, they were able to achieve this through high-precision non-contact shaft measurement machines. Offering manufacturers advanced solutions for turned components, with machines that deliver rapid measurement through dual video and light projection technology.

Case study Firearms. Focus: Measuring Gun Barrel
Sig Sauer Inc.
Gun barrels are high production parts that require precision measurements.
Traditional methods, such as hand gaging, are subject to inaccuracies and variable repeteability, depending on an inspector technique and individual skill set.
Hard gaging require set-up time and is limited to specific parts. In order to speed up production and achieve the necessary accuracies, an authomated inspection system is required.
