In the automotive industry, 3D multisensor measuring machines are used to measure e.g. crankshafts, camshafts, transmission shafts, drive shafts or steering shafts.


The cost and delivery pressure in the automotive and components industry is unparalleled. The critical parameters for competitiveness today more than ever are the production processes and the workmanship. Schneider Messtechnik helps you to optimise both areas. With easily operated and flexibly deployable machines. With the highest measuring precision and software tools that quickly, reliably and selectively identify faulty components. The result: Minimised risk of complaints, consistently high production quality. Day in, day out. 24 hours a day.

Precision for your pole position:

State-of-the-art, efficient drive units nowadays consist of many complex, highly precise individual parts. This places stringent requirements upon measurement processes – requirements that only well-conceived measuring instruments can fulfil. Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik is a manufacturer of sophisticated measuring products that excel in this respect because they offer outstanding flexibility with regard to material, shape and size, as well as maximum efficiency. It thus comes as no surprise that even Formula 1 relies on precision products made by Schneider.

Pole position in every race:

Optical, tactile or multisensor, 2D, 2,5D or 3D: Practically all our products are proven in the automotive industry. Our PMS-Series for horizontal or WMM-Series for vertical workpiece clamping offer you high-precision 3D multisensor measuring machines. The measurement as such becomes incidental – i.a. also for rotationally symmetrical parts such as crankshafts, camshafts, transmission shafts, drive shafts or steering shafts.
Your benefits: The geometries of crankshafts and camshafts can be measured completely without having to use additional measuring equipment. Additional flexible clamping systems allow a very wide variety of shapes and sizes to be easily clamped and measured.
