Accuracy is very important here at Ajax we are one of very few companies in the UK who own a Renishaw XL80 laser measurement machine. It can measure down to a Nano of movement which is a 1,000 ‘th of a Micron which is 1,000 ‘th of a Millimetre. We then use this data to calibrate the machine down to very high accuracy. We can do this on your site if required and re do this on an annual basis to keep your machine accurate. Our normal results get machines over the entire working envelope down to less than +/- 0.002 most of our competitors are way over this and cannot test it or prove it.
