Jamco Aerospace is a manufacturer of complex, structural components typically used in the aerospace industry. The company is a full-service machining and airframe sub-assembly facility. Some of their larger customers include Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems and the US government. In 2006 Jamco decided they needed more efficient quality inspection equipment Their existing CMM and manual gauges were no longer effective; they needed a new CMM with better measuring technology.
“I have been involved in this business for over 40 years and the manufacturing base in the US has grown increasingly smaller and more competitive,” says Dr. Jack Lee, CEO of Jamco. “The scanning inspection technology is spreading fast and I believe the key is to improve quality throughout the entire manufacturing process, otherwise the final inspection is completely worthless.”
