VMS Vertex – Not Your Run of the Mill Measuring System


The Best Product in the Metrology Field

Height gauges are an indispensable instrument for quality control in many industries but not all Height Gauges offer unique features like the VMS Vertex, that is designed and manufactured in the heart of Derbyshire UK. We highlight the key features and the  exceptional qualities of the VMS Vertex that delivers exquisite results.

Non-error mapping – Unique, patented and effective. The VMS Vertex has been designed to precise measurements. Our manufacturing process meet specification without the need for computer correction.  No extra billing for error-map running, no time delays just accurate results.

Costs can be incurred for calibration and services on error mapped.

Air bearing carriages – Most digital height gauges components are designed with ball bearings to assist with smooth movement; however, issues can occur if particles are ingressed during movement causing inaccurate measurement results. The patented Vertex VMS is one of a kind with air bearing carriages at the base and the Z axis as well as the counterbalance system. The air bearings ensure frictionless fluid movement during on all measuring surfaces.

Pneumatic locking system – This is an ingenious design which controls the air bearings during measurement. The locking system offers extreme versatility and accuracy during component inspection.
