2023 represents a milestone year for metrology specialist Aberlink. Not only does it commemorate 30 years in business for the Eastcombe, Gloucestershire-based company – it also marks the launch of a powerful, but simple to use manual coordinate measuring machine – the Fulcrum.
When Redruth, Cornwall-based DP Engineering was looking to upgrade its inspection capability for a medical sector contract it turned to its established CMM supplier Aberlink for a comprehensive solution.
It’s always good to see Aberlink developing new technology. The Eastcombe, Gloucestershire metrology specialist designs, manufactures and assembles all its products in-house, exporting around 70% of its wares around the globe. Dave Tudor headed off to the Cotswolds to find out more about its two latest innovations – the Extol and Horizon coordinate measuring machines.
The current global Covid-19 pandemic has caused a monumental shift in manufacturing, both in the way parts are produced but also the processes to produce them. As more companies turn their focus to the medical industry, quality assurance has taken on an increased level of importance. One such manufacturing company involved in this radical challenge is NPI Solutions.
Due to many years of continuous, impressive growth, Aberlink’s exclusive American importer, Masters Precision Inc. (an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited company) has recently opened a new, technology rich and fully equipped CMM and metrology showroom near Chicago in the US.
