“Our quality strategy is based on the assumption that process-control requirements will increase in the future,” says Cindy Porter, corporate director of quality for McGregor Metalworking Companies, Springfield, OH, commenting on the firm’s latest acquisition: a Brown & Sharpe Global Advantage DCC vertical coordinate-measuring machine. The company recently installed the machine, with a measuring envelope of 59 by 87 by 39 in., to take speed and accuracy (2.5 microns) to a new level, basing its investment decision not only on current requirements but on future needs.
