Inspection Services

Quality is the foundation of Protofab Engineering, which is why we invest in a wide range of inspection equipment and strategically train and test our inspection staff to run and understand all aspects of the various equipment. We are pleased to provide full inspection services to ensure parts accurately meet your specifications.

First Article Inspection

When requested Protofab Engineering will perform a detailed analysis of your print and number all dimensions and specification. We will then complete a full inspection of the parts and provide you with all dimension measurements on a First Article Inspection form. (AS 9102 inspection format can be used if requested)

Vision System

Our OGP Smartscope systems give us the ability accurately measure extremely small parts. By utilizing Measure-X and Zone-3 software we have the ability to quickly and accurately inspect parts.


Our Brown and Sharp Coordinate Machines are CNC controlled and inspect parts by making contact with the part using a touch probe. The PCDMIS software we use, allows our inspectors to program the CMMs to not only inspect tight tolerance dimensions, but also use the part’s model to accurately inspect complex features and the profiles of complex surfaces.
