1 min read

Innovation has been at the heart of Aberlink’s success since its incorporation in 1993, and it's no wonder as they celebrate 30 years in business in July 2023.

Their tagline, 'Innovative Metrology', has been a driving force behind their patent protected product development for the last three decades.

Aberlink's best-selling Axiom coordinate measuring machine (CMM) was just the beginning, as they have since established themselves as a global provider of affordable CMMs and optical measuring systems known for their quality, accuracy, robustness, speed, and ease of use.

Their products are widely used in high-demand industries such as aerospace, automotive/autosport, electronics, oil and medical sectors, where precision is paramount.

Not only have they gained a reputation in the UK, but their products are now sold in virtually every country throughout the industrialized world, with 75% of their total output being exported. Aberlink has established an extensive network of overseas agents to provide excellent levels of service and training to match the quality of their products.

Behind their success is Aberlink's steadfast commitment to research and development, which has led to a steady stream of commercially successful product launches. Their innovative approach to metrology, use of advanced materials, and understanding of design-for-manufacturing principles have resulted in class-leading performance.

Their skilled workforce is committed to producing the highest quality products possible, catering to the world's most demanding consumers - Quality Professionals.

Aberlink's fully self-contained business model has enabled them to provide remarkable value for money. By machining all the components for their machines themselves, they understand the manufacturing process fully and can design for manufacture accordingly. This ensures reliable products with no redundant costs, as all assembly is performed on-site in Gloucestershire, where the software is also written in-house.

To mark their 30th anniversary, Aberlink is offering a ‘limited edition Axiom CMM’ with a colour scheme that pays homage to the original best-selling CMM, the Axiom.

Aberlink's remarkable achievements over the last 30 years is a true British manufacturing success story, and only strengthened by their continued commitment to innovation.
