Roush Yates Engines of Mooresville, North Carolina, and Nikon Metrology of Brighton, Michigan, announced a multi-year technical partnership program.

With the new agreement, Nikon will provide precision equipment and metrology solutions to the engine builder.

“We are very excited to be partnering with one of the most respected engine builders in the motorsports industry,” Nikon Metrology Marketing and Communications Manager Andy Stults said. “Roush Yates Engines provide the highest performance and most reliable engines for teams at the racetrack, as their winning record proves.”

Nikon’s LC15Dx laser scanner provides a 3D visualization of dimensional quality using color mapping. Nikon’s ESP3 technology also maintains accuracy, speed and data quality by adapting the laser settings in real-time, which is said to improve efficiency and part quality data accuracy.

The iNEXIV vision system was also added to the Roush Yates Engines lineup of inspection equipment. This CNC video measuring system is ideal for both large and tall mechanical parts and uneven surfaces, in addition to providing a broader XYZ measurement range, which is said to be suitable for analyzing complex geometry engine components.

“These advanced capabilities allow our team the ability to measure and analyze a larger array of parts, each with varying geometry and materials, with a single piece of equipment,” Roush Yates Engines Quality Manager Chad Johnson said.
