In 1988, GAUDLITZ decided to purchase a ZEISS UMC 850 coordinate measuring machine. This machine was considerably more accurate than its predecessors. It scanned the workpiece surface continuously instead of deriving the form and location from the mean values of point-by-point measurements.
In 1995 GAUDLITZ responded to the need for faster measurements by purchasing a ZEISS machine. As a pilot customer, the company introduced the ZEISS PRISMO VAST bridge-type measuring machine to the plastics processing industry for the first time – a new development that combined measuring speed and precision.
In 2007 GAUDLITZ then became a pilot customer of ZEISS for the second time: the ZEISS METROTOM 1500 computer tomograph enabled the destruction-free measurement of workpieces from the outside and inside.
