May 20th 2019 marks the day of celebration for World Metrology Day – it’s an annual celebration of the signature of the Metre Convention in 1875 by representatives of seventeen nations. The Convention set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial, commercial and societal applications.

We take Metrology seriously and this is reflected on our vast array of precision Metrology/Engineering Tools on our website, which can be found by clicking here.

We had some exciting news this week as our Operations Manager, Jo Kuhn (now Jo Shepherd), got married and has tied the knot!

From everyone at the Allendale Group, a huge congratulations to Jo and Jonny. We hope you live happily ever after and enjoyed your very special day.

Our customer has done a fantastic job on building his CNC Mill which includes our M-DRO 470mm (18 1/2 inch) Reading Length Linear Optical Encoder with 1um Resolution and has kindly sent us a video of it in action.

To make the Encoder coolant proof (IP57 rated as standard), he has modified the cover of the Optical Encoder by protection adding a brush seal so coolant and swarf do not get anywhere near the M-DRO Optical scale. It has been working perfectly and our customer is in the process of removing the 2:1 pulleys and going direct drive.

More details about the custom built CNC Mill:

• 4000 rpm

• 750mm per min

• 10mm depth of Cut

• Using Adaptive Clearing

We have started to roll out our new ROC Case tags which will feature on all of our Aluminium Flight Cases. But do you know how ROC Cases got its name?

Our ROC Cases were named after a mythical giant gird that was so strong, it could pick up and carry off elephants. Our Flight Cases are durable and can be used in many different applications, such as carrying tools, display cases, storing large/small items and lots more. Browse our full range of ROC Cases by clicking here.

Our customer has purchased our SPE Cases for a very unique application – he’s using our cases to make a prototype unit which sprays water jets at their horse when it kicks the stable door.

We don’t have pictures of the ready-made prototype in action, however, our customer did send us these pictures of how it will look from the inside and the outside. It’s a great way of using our Sealed ABS Plastic Enclosures and its fair to say this is a unique way of utilizing them. Great idea!
