 MORGAN CARS – THE TRADITIONAL CAR BUILDER WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Verisurf Software helps provide the user-friendly digital route
 Recent evolution of Morgan Cars has relied on technology advancements in metrology. Graham Chapman, Technology Manager, has deployed new measurement and inspection soft- ware to ‘digitise’ and preserve certain key characteristics of Morgan chassis and body structures.
“We needed a solution that was easy to use but provided the high-end functionality to deliver quality scans and inspection data to meet our exacting standards he said. “Morgan is a traditional methods car builder
but that does not mean we reject new tech- nologies to achieve our goals of a British Classic.”
Verisurf Software, from GTMA supplier Metrology UK, was selected as the metrolo- gy software application along with a Hexagon Romer articulating scanning arm. The software/hardware combination pro- vides Morgan with a user-friendly digital route from hand-built components and assemblies to the CAD engineering team.
