ABTech took the opportunity to show a live demonstration of the MicroFormTM roundness gage at the Quality Expo in Forth Worth, Texas from March 14th to March 15th, 2012. During this demonstration, it was made evident that the MicroFormTM gage provides speed and ease while getting ultra-precision form measurement results. Who can benefit from this [Read More]

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch toured ABTech’s facility and met with ABTech employees in August of 2009. Governor Lynch expressed his pride in how our small NH business has successfully delivered critical systems worldwide and pledged his assistance at the state level. ABTech President Kenneth Abbott welcomed Governor Lynch and explained how ABTech designs, engineers, [Read More]

ABTech introduced the all-new MicroForm™ gage May 10-12th at the 2011 Optifab Conference and Exhibition in Rochester, New York, and September 20-22nd at the 2011 Quality Expo in Chicago, Illinois. Demonstrations of the ultra-precision form measurement capabilities were performed including runout, roundness, flatness, parallelism, concentricity, and squareness along with the industry-specific custom wedge (ETV) option.

Jeanne Shaheen, United States Senator since 2009 and former governor of New Hampshire [1997 – 2003] recently met with ABTech employees and other state and local leaders during a tour of our facility. ABTech President Kenneth Abbott welcomed Senator Shaheen and had the opportunity to explain how ABTech engineers, machines, assembles, and tests custom ultra-precision [Read More]

NASA scientists challenged ABTech to develop a multifunctional machine that would act as a grinding lathe, an indexing tool for raster grinding, and an assembly station—all in one. The machine would safely and quickly produce optics for their long-delayed NuSTAR X-ray telescope. ABTech met the challenge and delivered the machines to Columbia University’s Nevis Astrophysics [Read More]

OptiPro Systems, a well-respected optical machine manufacturer, came to ABTech with a concept and left with a complete motion system. They first approached ABTech to supply just air-bearing stages for their prototype metrology station. Using their concept as the framework, we applied our expertise in multi-axis motion and our understanding of geometric measurement principles to [Read More]

  A leading manufacturer of OEM automotive parts contracted ABTech to design and manufacture a turnkey work cell to solve an international sourcing logistics problem. Increasingly tighter part tolerances on transmission parts were becoming more difficult to achieve through typical off-shore sourcing channels. ABTech was called upon to develop a combination metrology and machining system [Read More]

ABTech designed a set of three high-speed air-bearing spindles which were synchronized for the 3-dimensional image scanning and inline inspection of the European high-speed rail system. These spindles are mounted on a dedicated rail car traveling at 75 mph creating a 3-D image every 10 cm   (less than 4″) of the rail to inspect the [Read More]

The engineers at the University of California’s Lawrence Livermore Labs needed a target assembly station with a position accuracy of 4 millionths of an inch—that’s 0.000,0004 of an inch (or 0.01 micron)—and ABTech delivered. The compact and mechanically elegant system we designed and manufactured incorporates six ABTech air-bearings, including three motorized air-bearing linear slides, two [Read More]

Thanks a lot for your help. Your rapid, informative correspondence was invaluable. Hopefully I won't be bothering you with any further questions, but it's good to know you're willing.
