    Improving measurement certainty by 50%

    MECH Metrology has invested in a Trimos Horizon Premium Length measuring machine from the Bowers Group, which has increased capacity for in-house calibration services and improved measurement certainty by 50%. In addition to enabling the business to calibrate plug gauges traceable to UKAS standards, the Trimos Horizon Premium is used to calibrate thread, plug and ring gauges, plain plug gauges and other equipment.

    Previously, the testing of screw ring gauges and internal threads would have been subcontracted out, but the Trimos Horizon Premium has brought this work in-house and improved output and efficiency at Fareham based MECH Metrology. Mr Russell Johnston, Owner of MECH Metrology, said: “There are 3 key reasons why we chose to invest in the Trimos Horizon Premium; capability, capacity and accuracy. We can now calibrate more equipment in-house than ever, at an even higher level of accuracy. I would estimate that the Trimos has improved our certainty of measurement by 50%. Speed of process has also improved significantly, so we can get more work done in less time.”

    “Customers are increasingly looking for a one-stop solution which we can offer with confidence” explains Russell. “Following a request from a customer, we simply take the item off the shelf and send it straight into the lab for calibration before it goes out the door. It is a perfectly streamlined process. Our calibration management system ensures that equipment is recalled for calibration promptly, customers have access to online certification information, and all data is electronically held.”

    Mr Craig George, Technical Sales Engineer at MECH Metrology, said: “We were driven to invest in the Trimos Horizon when we couldn’t carry out some of the calibration requests we received internally. We did not want to continue to subcontract them out, so the Trimos Horizon has solved this issue for us. It allows us to carry out far more of our calibration services in-house, without having to subcontract out the items we didn’t have the capacity for.”

    “The return on investment for the Horizon has been very quick due to the demand we have experienced for calibration services. We now have a bigger capacity for work, and we can comfortably achieve the necessary UKAS accreditation required to meet standards.”
