Dimensional Inspection

The need for Dimensional Inspection can be varied. Your in-house capacity may be full. You may not have the necessary equipment. You could be seeking an independent inspection of your part. 

Our combination of experience, knowledge and the latest technology enable us to solve your most complex inspection needs. Our first article, batch and production inspection experience has been applied to a wide range of industries and processes including:

  • Castings

  • Forgings

  • Plastic Injection moulded parts

  • Fixtures & dedicated gauging

  • Precision machined parts

  • Complex surfaces

  • Sheet metal

Our dimensional inspection service provides a reliable, fast and economical solution to your inspection problems.


Reverse Engineering

If you have neither CAD nor drawings for your part, try our reverse engineering service. By combining our CMM & CAD capabilities we can digitise your part and create 2D and 3D CAD models or blueprint drawings to suit your needs.


Inspection Reports

AB Technology provides inspection reports that are easy to read, interpret and analyse. We match the layouts of our reports to the individual needs of each customer.  Results can be generated in a number of formats including CAD, Excel, Word and ASCII.  Reports are available as paper copy or via e-mail.  


Results Analysis

If your part is incorrect and the CMM inspection results do not provide a clear indication as to what the underlying cause is, our specialist software tools can help. We can evaluate the actual part measurements, individually or as whole, against the nominal part description using powerful best fitting routines. Typically errors revealed include part twisting, shrinkage and errors in datum features.


Process Control

If you need to quantify the capability of your manufacturing process we can help. We have experience in conducting 'SPC', 'Gauge R+R', Capability Studies and First Article Inspection Reports.


CMM Off Line Programming

Our state of the art, CAD based , off line CMM programming software enables us to create inspection programs prior to your part being available. When your part becomes available the inspection program is ready to run. You can run these programs on our CMM or your own. With either option you will benefit from reduced lead-times and maximise your productivity.


CMM Programming & Training

The purpose of our programming and training service is to help you get the most out of your CMM.  Use our programming knowledge, which has been developed over many years and a wide range of industries, to your benefit. We will work with you to enhance your existing programs, measuring techniques, reports and programming knowledge or deliver a turnkey solution - which ever suits your needs. Our native language support includes Quindos, MM4, MeasureMax+, DMIS, PC-DMIS and Modus.



All equipment is calibrated and traceable to national standards. Accuracy and reliability tests are carried out regularly. Our Giddings and Lewis RS30 High Accuracy Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) has a measuring range of 1000mm x 750mm x 650mm and a volumetric accuracy of 0.007mm.
