On 15 October, Zeiss officially opened its new test lab for Industrial Measuring Technology in the city of Garching (near Munich). Around 50 invited guests, customers and representatives from the local business and political community attended the event at the new facilities north of Munich which encompass around 920 m2. Guests had the unique opportunity to learn about the diverse solutions offered by Zeiss thanks to the numerous discussions and speeches given by specialists.

Attila Szentes, Head of Carl Zeiss 3D Metrology Services GmbH in Munich, explained the reasons for the move: “Our former facilities in Eching had become too small for our needs. Thus we’re proud to be opening a new test lab here in Garching. Our test lab is conveniently situated in the greater Munich area. As a solutions provider, this affords us the opportunity to be nearer to our customers. Our goal is to better understand the challenges our customers face regarding measuring technology and to align the appropriate service to our customers’ needs as best as possible.” Customers include key accounts from the automotive industry as well as numerous mid-sized companies from e.g. the aerospace, mechanical engineering and medical technology industries.

A total of 18 employees work in Garching. In addition to office space, the site has over four test labs, including a cleanroom. Zeiss is well-positioned to perform numerous measuring and structural tasks directly in the test lab using its coordination and multi-sensor machines like the Prismo, the DuraMax, the Contura, the O-Inspect, a Metrotom computer tomograph and additional types of contact and optical measuring machines.

“Quite often our customers come directly to our measuring house with their components, and we work together to find a solution for their requirements. Our application technicians and engineers are in regular contact with our customers to share ideas and, when necessary, they head directly to the customer’s site,” explained Brand Manager Matthias Schneider. In addition to its sharp customer focus, the new test lab in Garching also serves as a training and demo facility to optimally support employees from Sales and to enable easy access for machine customers.
