HOMMEL-ETAMIC - the brand for industrial measurement technology

Presentation of the comprehensive metrology product portfolio at the Control trade fair from May 3 to 6 in Stuttgart.

Jenoptik's industrial metrology portfolio will in future be presented under the familiar brand name HOMMEL ETAMIC with a new market presence, enabling a more focused approach to customers.

HOMMEL ETAMIC offers complete metrology solutions for industrial manufacturing processes. The product portfolio remains unchanged and includes high-precision production metrology for the inspection of roughness, contours, form and the determination of dimensions in every phase of the production process as well as in measuring rooms. The metrology specialist accesses the entire metrology technology spectrum – tactile, optical and pneumatic. Comprehensive services such as consulting, training and service including long-term maintenance contracts round off HOMMEL-ETAMIC's offering. This also includes the calibration laboratory for rough standards, stylus instruments, form standards and contour and cam standards, which was established in 1980 and has been continuously expanded.

The product portfolio remains under the product brands known in the market:

  • Visionline for optical surface inspection
  • Formline for form and roughness measurement
  • Waveline for roughness and contour measurement
  • Gageline for dimensional, pneumatic measurements
  • Opticline for non-contact measurement of complex workpieces

HOMMEL ETAMIC is the brand for industrial metrology, combining more than 100 years of experience in high-precision production metrology. HOMMEL ETAMIC originated from the Hommelwerke, founded in 1876, and from the French metrology company ETAMIC, founded in 1947. Hommelwerke has belonged to Jenoptik since 2000, and Etamic since 2007. As part of Jenoptik Group both companies were merged.

Today, HOMMEL ETAMIC has more than 400 employees* worldwide and, in addition to its headquarters in Villingen-Schwenningen (Germany), it is present in Bayeux (France), Rochester Hills (USA), Saltillo (Mexico), as well as in Asia in Shanghai (China) and in Bangalore (India).

The product portfolio and current innovations (link to product press release) will be presented together with Jenoptik products at the Control trade fair in Stuttgart from May 3 to 6 at booth 3501 in hall 3.

About HOMMEL ETAMIC

As a leading manufacturer and system supplier, HOMMEL ETAMIC offers a broad portfolio of measurement technology for manufacturing processes. These include high-precision contact and non-contact manufacturing metrology for pneumatic, tactile or optical inspection of roughness, contours, shape and the determination of dimensions in every phase of the manufacturing process as well as in the measuring room. They analyze the surface, shape and dimensions of your workpieces - in every phase of the manufacturing process, during final inspection or in the measuring room. In the process, the systems provide you with precise measurement data within the shortest possible time. Comprehensive services such as consulting, training, and service, including long-term maintenance contracts, round off the Metrology offering.

HOMMEL ETAMIC has been DAkkS-certified

HOMMEL ETAMIC audits diameter and length dimensions on the optical shaft measurement systems of Opticline

HOMMEL ETAMIC has been DAkkS-certified as the world's first DKD calibration laboratory for optical shaft measuring systems. The accreditation certificate confirms the highest quality level of metrological traceability to national reference standards of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) for diameter and length measurements on the Opticline- shaft measuring systems. The calibration certificates issued by HOMMEL ETAMIC's calibration laboratory for optical metrology are internationally recognized and audit-proof.

With the service certified by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS), HOMMEL ETAMIC is responding to the strong demand in the market. "Calibration is the basic prerequisite for international trade," says Dr. Raimund Volk, head of the calibration laboratory. "Many users of our measuring systems for optical inspection have reported high demand, so we have already allocated the first appointments." Automotive suppliers in particular have a duty to demonstrate optimum measurement results: With the "IATF 16949" guideline, the international automotive association requires DAkkS calibration of the measuring devices used. Across industries, internal company quality guidelines also stipulate audit-proof calibration certificates.

After-sales service: independent documentation of measurement results

HOMMEL ETAMIC will integrate the calibration of Opticline equipment into its after-sales service. "It always makes sense to calibrate the equipment directly after maintenance," says Dr. Raimund Volk. "The service employee is already on site for the maintenance. And he can rule out some of the possible causes of measurement deviations even before the traceability."

The calibration laboratory staff act independently when issuing official calibration certificates. They are solely committed to the highest possible quality standard of traceability to internationally recognized reference measurements. In an elaborate approval procedure lasting almost two years, all employees were trained and checked by PTB auditors on behalf of the DAkkS. In addition, the calibration laboratories are subject to continuous controls.

The DAkkS-DKD calibration laboratory of JENOPTIK Industrial Metrology Germany GmbH operates under the HOMMEL ETAMIC brand following the new strategic orientation of the JENOPTIK Group. The calibration laboratory, which was founded in 1980, is a member of the German Calibration Service

(DKD) and is allowed to display the DKD logo on the calibration certificate. It covers the measurands roughness, stylus instruments, form, contour and now also shaft measuring instruments.
