Quality at Mcafee

We ensure our operators have the skills and knowledge to produce high-quality products. In addition to our ISO certifications, we utilize sophisticated control devices such as Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) to ensure accurate measurements and precise machining. Our ISO manual outlines our procedures and systems that meet our customers’ requirements.

Hexagon CMM

Our Qualifications

We are qualified to meet industry-specific standards, including AS 9100 Rev. C, ISO 9001:2008, Mil. Spec. 45208A, and other military and aerospace specifications. Our team undergoes continued training in Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and other relevant procedures.

GD&T is a system that uses engineering to communicate form, size, and orientation. The system helps ensure that manufacturing occurs correctly, which improves the quality of parts. At McAfee Tool & Die we conform to ASME Y14.5-2018.

We ensure that our machinists are well-versed in the latest techniques and can consistently deliver products that meet or exceed customer expectations. At McAfee Tool & Die, quality is not just a buzzword–it’s part of our business practices. We take pride in our ability to consistently deliver high-quality products that meet our customers standards across the industries we service.

Understanding Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM)

A coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is a sophisticated device designed to measure the geometry of physical objects by detecting discrete points on their surfaces using a probe. CMMs employ various types of probes, with mechanical and laser sensors being the most common. It’s worth noting that optical and white light sensors also exist.

McAfee Tool & Die’s CMM Information and Capabilities

At McAfee, we utilize a Hexagon Global-S Green 7.10.7 Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) equipped with a motorized head and a range of probes, including a laser scanning head. Our CMM boasts full programmability from solid models and offers a generous measuring range of 700mm (X) by 1000mm (Y) by 660mm (Z). It can handle parts weighing up to 90kg.

The Purpose of Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM)

The primary function of a CMM is to measure the geometry of physical objects. This is achieved by precisely sensing discrete points on the object’s surface using a probe. By capturing this data. CMMs enable accurate dimensional analysis and object inspection.

Applications of Coordinate Measuring Machines

CMMs play a crucial role in measuring and inspecting physical objects to ensure dimensional accuracy and adherence to specifications. CMMs find application in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, and medical devices, where they are used for quality control purposes.

Reverse Engineering with CMM

In addition to their traditional applications, CMMs can also be utilized for reverse engineering. This involves recreating a part for which no drawing or specifications exist. By capturing precise measurements of the object, a CMM enables the recreation and production of the part.

Our CMM laser scanner has a form error of less than 8 microns (µm) and can capture hundreds of thousands of points per second. With this, we can capture accurate 3D scans of parts that can be used to create solid models when CAD data or drawings are not available.
