El Paso, Texas - Southwest Venture Plastics (SVP), a leading custom thermoplastic injection molder with full ISO/IATF 16949 certifications, proudly announces its recent investment in cutting-edge metrology equipment: the Zeiss Mass Accura Coordinated Measuring Machine (CMM) to the Quality Department. This strategic addition to SVP's capabilities significantly bolsters its ability to cater to customers requiring pinpoint accuracy for parts of various sizes and confirms the part's conformance to specifications. With one of the largest scanning machines in El Paso, SVP can now provide customers with large part requirements a better CMM option compared having to ship the part to another service provider located outside the area.

The Zeiss Mass Accura CMM is designed to cater to the intricate needs of the plastics industry. This advanced measuring machine offers versatility, speed, and state-of-the-art technology, making it ideal for assessing complex shapes and contours.
