Automated Precision Services Division Expands to New Building

Automated Precision Inc. Services Division answered the strong demand to expand its footprint by purchasing and moving into a new building in Newport News, Virginia and boasts 14,000 square feet of office and calibration laboratory space.

Calibrations for API Laser Trackers were routinely performed at the Newport News facility since 2012, but with the newer Omnitrac 2 laser tracker models increasing demand, additional capacity was required to service these advanced measurement instruments with continued excellent service. The capacity of the old facility did not allow for concurrent contract metrology and product testing in parallel to the laser tracker calibration and repair activities.

As an additional benefit, API now has room for its expanding team.  API maintains a complete business staff including sales, marketing and administrative personnel, and has been recruiting additional Application Engineers to better support service customers.

Besides Laser Tracker Calibration and Repair services in the new facility, API will also offer customer training, contract measurement services, laser scanning and modeling, as well as robot performance testing.  API provides calibration of customer’s multi-axis CNC machines and offsite process using API’s volumetric error compensation (VEC) methodology.

Automated Precision’s is hosting an open house at its new facility on April 6th . The event will feature a number of speakers making informative presentations on laser trackers, machine tool health, and some interesting application stories.
