Trenton is a manufacturing facility focusing mainly on manufacturing parts for machines and tractors used for agriculture. Trenton’s Giordano Cecchini explained the benefit of having VICIVISION measuring machine involved in the process of producing parts at their facility.
“A company like Trenton, with its good reputation, is a real landmark in this area. Most of the manufacturing is done in-house, and we take care of many different client requests,” said Cecchini.
Using VICIVISON Measuring Machines enables them to be one step ahead in a competitive market. Cecchini said. “In terms of production and quality, we always try to have the best equipment available, and this machine can be used to carry out inspection on an entire line.”
The accuracy and simplicity of the VICIVISION Measuring Machine allows Trenton to better prioritize its time to more important tasks for its operational needs. Trenton uses an M2018 Techno with a Touchprobe to measure the many different parts they make in their manufacturing line.
“We can produce parts up to 1500 mm in length and inspect them on the Vici machine using the Touchprobe to measure keyway slots and planes. This machine measures parts 2000mm in length, and 180mm in width, giving Trenton the versatility they need in measuring the mechanical components they create,” Cecchini said.

Investing in a VICIVISION machine comes from the company’s decision to combine quantity and quality within production. That’s the focus that makes Trenton a cutting-edge company, capable of manufacturing many parts, from facing and centering to grinding.
Catching inaccuracies early can reduce the amount of waste, therefore saving a significant amount of time and money. Trenton’s Quality Control team said that it helps to know that they are starting production off on the right foot, especially with such a short setup time.”
They also explained that users can measure a part in 93 seconds, and the results indicate the validity of the part being measured. The tolerances for each measurement are defined by either a green or red line indicating the accuracy of the measurements for the product produced. Catching inaccuracies early can reduce the amount of waste, therefore saving a significant amount of time and money.
Trenton has had the Measuring Machine for a year, and over time they have created many new programs giving them the ability to increase the number of parts that are inspected. This intuitive machine allows for innovation in the process of the entire production, and with new technologies, it means that Trenton is better able to anticipate its customer’s needs.
As Trenton continues to manufacture the many different parts in their production line, they know the decision to have this Measuring Machine involved in the process is a great investment that ensures efficiency and accuracy in making quality products.
