Société Giennoise de Chaudronnerie (SGC) is based in the central Loire Valley region of France and specialises in precision sheet metalwork. The company services a wide range of industry sectors including HVAC, aerospace, household and industrial appliances, automotive, defence and lighting. The company offers both small and large volume manufacturing to its customers with production methods including punching and shearing, laser cutting, pressing, bending, deburring and surface treatment.

It was customer demand for 3D quality control reports to ensure the accuracy of parts which led SGC to seek an alternative to the basic measuring tools such as calipers they were using for inspection. Since installing the Planar with Opti-Scan 3D, SGC’s customers have renewed their contracts.

“Now we can certify to our customers that our parts are very accurate.”
