Mexico Technical Center (Juárez)

Delphi Mexico Technical Center Dimensional Measurement Laboratory

The Dimensional Measurement Laboratory at the Delphi Mexico Technical Center (MTC) is a state-of-the-art dimensional inspection facility designed to help engineering teams meet industry certification standards and customer product specification objectives. Delphi's team of highly trained and experienced technicians uses advanced, high-tech equipment to provide accurate and precise data for prototype and production component inspection.

The laboratory is a certified temperature and humidity controlled room. It specializes in services for automotive industry component development, but also offers the flexibility to support a wide range of non-automotive product programs.

Delphi's MTC Dimensional Measurement Laboratory ensures complete confidentiality in all test activities and will provide highly reliable data. Delphi offers the flexibility to meet the requirements of customers around the world. Services are conducted to meet program schedules and cost objectives as well as customer specific documentation for prototype submissions.
