Precision Manufacturing

Kern Evo

Kern Evo

Provides the capability to produce micro scale features using conventional machining methods combined with high precision tooling and linear actuation.
 
Precision Manufacturing Centres - Battenfield

Battenfeld Microsystem 50

Enables us to produce high precision injection moulded parts, down to 1mg in weight, and to use a large range of materials, including some not conventionally used in injection moulding. The integrated quality inspection camera and robot handling ensures compliance of all parts.
 
Precision Manufacturing Centre Labs - Envisiontec (217)

EnvisionTec Perfactory

Based on the principle of photo polymerisation, the Perfactory system creates precision micro 3D resin components through rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing approaches
 
Zeiss Nvision 40

Zeiss Nvision40

This state-of-the-art system delivers the capability for nanometre resolution material processing, enabling us to perform nano-scale machining and material deposition, with the ability to visually monitor the entire process in real-time.
 
Precision Manufacturing Centre Labs - Sodick (43)

Sodick AP200L

This machine is capable of producing high aspect ratio features 30μm x 100μm or greater. Manufacture of dies and mould tools, critical fine tolerance parts and calibration artefacts. High tolerance components and can machine up to ±7° taper
 

Precision Verification

precision-016036

Zeiss F25 and O-Inspect

Provides the capability to produce micro scale features using conventional machining methods combined with high precision tooling and linear actuation.
 
p3-imgf

Vishay Model P3 Strain Indicator

This portable machine enables us to perform semi-destructive residual stress measurements on any component. This provides us with the ability to accurately measure the residual stress variation/distribution on the component, from the surface to any pre-defined depth.
 
Hitachi SEM

Hitachi S2600N SEM

The Hitachi SEM enables us to provide product inspection and evaluation utilising up to the 300,000 times magnification and “natural state” capabilities, removing the need for sputter coating of non-conductive parts.
 
Zeiss Stemi 2000

Zeiss Stemi-2000

This high quality stereo-microscope, linked to a PC via a dedicated CCD camera, enables us to provide quick and accurate first-stage analysis of products and components.
 

Precision Assembly

Klocke Nanotechnik

Klocke Nanotechnik

Provides the capability to produce micro scale features using conventional machining methods combined with high precision tooling and linear actuation.
