Karl Hoch GmbH makes long-term investment with the purchase of a CONTURA G2 aktiv with the latest scanning technology
Measuring turned parts on a CONTURA G2 aktiv coordinate measuring machines at Karl Hock GmbH in Denzlingen.

Germany based Karl Hoch GmbH recently purchased a state-of-the-art CONTURA® G2 aktiv coordinate measuring machine from Carl Zeiss Industrielle Messtechnik GmbH. It was determined that this measuring machine would be more beneficial over the long term from an economical and applications point of view than an upgrade of the companyâs ECLIPSE measuring machine.Two metrologists at Karl Hoch GmbH have been working with a CONTURA G2 aktiv measuring machine with a VAST® XT scanning sensor since February 2007. The machine operators are particularly pleased with the repeatability of the measuring results with CONTURA G2 aktiv. âWe quickly and reliably receive reproducible results with the scanning technology. I have more trust in the measuring results than ever and that helps us when we have to quickly analyze the deviations in production,â says Thomas Hoch, Quality Assurance Officer at the mid-sized company. President Otto Hoch is also enthusiastic about the new possibilities offered by scanning in conjunction with CALPYSO®: âIn a short time, we can now effectively measure form and position in one pass, as well as complex 2D and 3D contours.â
