Exact Metrology recently celebrated the opening of their newest location in Moline, Illinois with a ribbon cutting ceremony. On September 29, 2020, members of the Quad Cities Chamber joined Exact Metrology for the ceremony to officially welcome the company at their new location.

The Quad Cities Chamber is a diverse group of influential business leaders in Western Illinois and Eastern Iowa that work to advance local businesses through advocacy, business connections, financial assistance, business intelligence, promotions, regional marketing, placemaking and leadership development.

Present at the event were Larry Makoben, Jan Mohr, Tushar Patel, Brian Williams, Scott Naumann, Amanda Hess, Ron Crouch, Mark Carlson and Terri Smith. Also present was the mayor of Moline, Stephanie Acri. The team at Exact Metrology included co-president Dean Solberg, general manager Joe Wright and applications engineers Patrick Wigans and Kris Bowers. Besides attending the ribbon cutting ceremony, the guests received a tour of the facility and witnessed product demonstrations.

Dean, Joe, Patrick and Kris scanned a sample part using the Hexagon Absolute Arm 8525 and the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960. The Hexagon Absolute Arm 7-axis delivers tactile probing and laser scanning in a uniquely ergonomic package. It is ideal for high-end portable measurement applications. The articulating arm offers ease of movement and ease of measurement. The Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 is a robust, all-in-one laser tracker that fits in a single flight case and offers high-speed dynamic measurement as standard. Besides offering six degrees of freedom (6DoF), the tracker offers probing, scanning, automated inspection and reflector measurement. The AT960 laser tracker can be easily transported, unpacked quickly and powered up in minutes to deliver high-performance measurement almost anywhere. Dynamic features and flexible functionality give users absolute speed, accuracy and portability.

Speaking about this event, Dean Solberg said, “We were pleased to have members of Quad Cities Chamber visit us at our new location and we’re happy to be part of the local business community. Our hope is to develop a strong collaboration within this community.”
