High quality probes for a wide range of testing situations
Design and manufacture
The probes and fixtures shown below are attached to a Texture Analyser to allow a particular action or test to be performed.
They are in everyday operation worldwide, testing a wide range of products, materials and properties in both Research and Quality Laboratories, as well as being integrated into many production lines.
Only the finest quality materials and the best quality finishes are used in the manufacture of our probes and attachments; food quality or better Stainless Steels (polished and mirror finish), aerospace quality aluminium alloys (micro finished and hard anodised) and ICI or GE engineering plastics.
Every probe and attachment is rigorously inspected for dimensional accuracy, profile and finish during manufacture, again both during and after assembly and finally before despatch to the customer. Where applicable optical inspection is also utilised.
Above all, we listen to you, the user, and constantly work to improve our products to suit your requirements. We are always enthusiastic to hear from users with suggestions on how we could improve or extend our range of accessories. In house mechanical, electronic and software engineers also provide us with the ability to design bespoke probes and fixtures to solve new testing requirements or according to customer specification.
As a Texture Measurement professional, you may notice with some amusement how frequently the inventions and innovations of Stable Micro Systems are copied by our imitators. However, such imitations often lose the subtlety and elegance of the original design and in all cases lack the application background and development understanding required for successful implementation.
Since 2007, all original probes and fixtures have been filed as Community Registered Designs.
