White Drive Products, a leading hydraulic component manufacturer, recently chose Coherix’s ShaPix metrology solution to be the catalyst in their continuous pursuit of producing Best-in-Class quality hydraulic motors. With the ShaPix solution, White Drive Products has a complete understanding of the surfaces of their motors and can proactively take their products to the next level of efficiency and reliability.
Barry Rolley, Project Manager of WH Manufacturing (fabrications process facility of White Drive Products) states, “We did a thorough evaluation of surface measurement technology available in the industry today and found that the Coherix ShaPix technology - with its micron level visualization of precision machined surfaces - was the best choice. After receiving a live ShaPix 1500 demonstration and seeing the level of precision, field of measurement, acquisition / processing speed and non-contact methods, we knew this was the right system. We are now able to understand our parts and manufacturing processes better. WH’s ultimate goal is to provide our customers with high quality products that are more efficient, more powerful and more reliable than our competitors. - Coherix is helping us do that.”
Per Coherix Project Manager, Frank White, "White Drive Products is both serious and proactive in their quest for making perfect products and the ShaPix data and analysis capabilities will help them achieve their goal. As one of our first customers in the hydraulic motor manufacturing industry, we are excited to help them understand their parts, improve their process and ultimately increase productivity.”
