Automotive Non-Destructive Testing

Using state-of-the-art technology to conduct metrology, digitalization, 3D engineering and tooling maintenance services for the automotive industry.

Non-destructive testing, using technology such as 3D scanners, laser trackers, portable CMMs and metrology software, is becoming increasingly useful to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 operators in the transport and industrial sectors.

Such technology can save time and expense at all stages of production, from the initial development phases through quality control in manufacturing, to type approval and compliance with legal specifications.

With our highly trained professionals and innovative technology, SGS has become one of the world’s leading providers of portable metrology testing services, with particular expertise in the area of 3D industrial measurements.
