Improving transducer and gauging probe accuracy and reliability

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

The accuracy and reliability of our transducers and gauging probes are critical to our customers. The performance of their products relies on our provision of precision measurement technology, meaning that, ultimately, their brand reputation is in our hands



Investing in the quality of our premium transducers and gauging probes

This responsibility is why we invest continually in Solartron technology and manufacturing facilities and in constantly improving the quality of our top-of-the-line transducers and gauging probes. It is this commitment to excellence that allows customers to trust our precision sensors and makes us a world leader in our field.

As part of this investment programme, and following a number of major product launches, we have recently invested in a range of advanced machinery at our manufacturing facilities. This investment includes the purchase of lathe technology from EMCO, one of the leading manufacturers of machine tools in Europe, and advanced grinder and rumbler technology.

In addition, we have invested in the full refurbishment of our cutting-edge Kadia honing machinery. This advanced honing technology is used for the precision-machining of bores and is extremely precise and reliable.


A commitment to manufacturing and measurement excellence

Solartron Metrology’s focus on maintaining and improving the standard of our machinery and manufacturing processes helps to ensure that every single transducer and gauging probe that we manufacture and supply to our customers is of the highest quality.

Our standing as a leading supplier of premium transducers and gauging probes rests on this dedication to excellence. Our premium sensors are a cost-effective and cost-saving investment for manufacturing businesses across the industry spectrum


A new cleaning system to support our dedication to sensor quality

To further support our dedication to market-leading transducers and gauging probe accuracy and reliability, and to operating in an environmentally responsible manner, we have also invested in a new, state-of-the-art aqueous cleaning system.

This environmentally friendly cleaning system ensures that machined parts are completely clean before being assembled into transducers and gauging probes. This helps to ensure that our transducers and gauging probes perform to the highest standard.

Investing in our company and our customers

By regularly investing in our manufacturing processes and improving the accuracy and reliability of our transducer and gauging probes, we give ourselves the means not only to lead our field, but also to provide our customers with the advanced technology and quality of service that are integral to their success.
