Services Overview

Have you ever dealt with the following issues?

  • The object is so large that it cannot be measured with an existing measurement machine.

    You do not have the right equipment in-house to scan or measure the target object or structure.

  • It costs a lot of money to acquire a measurement machine, software, and operators.

    You do not have the expensive, difficult metrology software for processing 3D point data.

  • I want to manufacture a sample based on a drawing.

    You want a parametric CAD model of an as-built part but no time to scan and design.

  • Although we have a measurement machine, we did not have a good command of it.

    You have a laser scanner or tracker but none of your employees can utilize it.

Leave your metrology projects to the pros at Nabeya Manufacturing!

With our proven track record of more than 6,000 projects completed, our 20 metrology engineers have the experience and technology to finish your projects under budget, before deadline.

  • We, JMS (Japan Measurement Service), are a group of laser measurement professionals recommended by Hexagon and Faro.

    We can scan objects of any size -- from bearings to ballparks!

  • An operator carries a measurement machine. We will provide you with the necessary data.

    We can 3D scan and CAD model outdoor structures of any size and complexity.

  • For even parts without drawings, it is possible to create CAD data.

    We can reverse engineer complex assemblies from as-built parts.

  • Each staff member is a measurement expert!

    Our engineers can handle any project.

Past projects include automobile welding lines, tunnels, railroad bridges, museums pieces, medical equipment and more. We can provide accurate measurement data and parametric models up to 0.01mm at ranges of more than 100m. We can export data to all major CAD formats.

One question we always get asked at job sites is "how much did all your gear cost?" Any one of our devices might cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, but that belies the total cost of entry. One also must consider the software licenses and maintenance fees, as well as personnel costs. That is why clients from all industries count on JMS for total manufacturing solutions.

If you have any of the following problems…

  • No budget for purchasing metrology equipment.
  • No capacity to hire or train metrology engineers.
  • The target is not viable for transport.

…then call on JMS for your metrology solutions. Don't waste time and money -- let us review your specs and provide you with a free estimate right away.

Other metrology services typically offer only scanning or measurement. At JMS, we can fabricate replacement parts, repair and re-align jigs and much, much more.

Mastery of specialized software applications is essential in order to utilize laser trackers and scanners. We have a full suite of applications including CATIA5, Solidworks, Geomagic Design X, SpatialAnalyzer, CAM2, Polyworks and more. The green image on the far left shows raw scan data. The blue image in the center is a CAD model. The photo on the right is a 3D printed replica of the original object.
