Check bicycle components

Solartron Metrology offers specialized probes that are short, skinny, and built to check the awkward shapes a bicycle might have. Solartron product help high end bicycle manufacturers to solve their complex challenges. They must manufacture components that have tight tolerances with extreme performance standards to maintain their brand superiority. Critical dimensions in bicycle manufacturing can be small, awkward and difficult to measure with standard sensors, but Solartron can offer range of sensors to solve this problem:

Digital displacement Sensors (LVDT's) - excellent for checking flatness and height build.
Digital Short probes and DZ - these are great for tight spaces.
Skinny probes - for tight areas where several points need to be measured
Specialized Mini probes- can fit into bores and tight gaps that other sensor cannot.





Software engineer vacancy

Solartron Metrology is looking for a junior software developer to join the Engineering team at our Bognor Regis Head Office.

Solartron Metrology Ltd is a leading, fast paced UK manufacturer of digital measurement systems. Due to rapid organic growth, we are looking to increase our development team.

Check groove in a bore

Solartron Metrology specialty sensors such as Block Gauges provide the ability to check awkward dimensions accurately and repeatable, and with a lower cost than non-contact offerings.

Manufacturing a piston or an engine component often involves non-standard geometric features, such as groves inside a bore or cavity. They are part of high tolerance system; the inner groove must still be gauged with precise instruments. Non-contact or pencil probes are impractical in such a limited space, so here the Block gauges comes solve this problem.

Application Story


Air  Gauge

Solartron Metrology's Orbit Air Gauge Interface Module (AGM) makes connecting air gauge Measurement Probes to Orbit simple, allowing the user to mix air gauges with all of our contact and non contact sensors to fully utilise the full performance of the Orbit Digital Measurement  Network.

Application story






Solartron Metrology will take a part in the most important manufacturing event to be held in Mexico and we will represent our brand in front of more than 13000 attendees.
The "Expo Manufactura" trade show will be held in Monterrey, Mexico, on April 13-15. 




Solartron Metrology is taking part in the Ametek Virtual Trade Show.
While the value of face-to-face interactions will never go away, this year AMETEK is embracing the opportunity to inform and connect with an engaging informative virtual experience. This is making a great opportunity to feature new products, cross selling and to build relationships with customers in a new online format. The Ametek team has been devoting time and attention to creating an exciting event that is convenient for everyone to attend, will user-friendly, interactive, and an informative experience. 





A new solution for the Civil Engineering sector to increase the long service of the pencil probes. Marine grade stainless steel probes are the right choice for harsh natural environments, due to their greater resistance to pitting corrosion. Non standard material probes are ideally suited to coastal areas, for bridges and highly exposed buildings that are affected by salty wind and sea power. These probes were complemented with a moisture-proof heat-shrinkable tubing to protect the cable exit and marine grade stainless steel ball tip holders.

Application Story




Solartron Metrology is focused on improving our products to meet special customer requirements. We revealed an increase in demand on the control quality monitoring during the machining process in oily and wet environments. Solartron Metrology now offers the extra step of sealing the pencil probes at all points of ingress, for a full IP68 rating. All probes are 100% tested with up to 1 bar internal air pressure when fully submersed into the water, before this product is shipped to the customer. 







Orbit GCS is an advanced gauging tool supplied as a downloadable software pack from the Solartron website. In conjunction with the Orbit® Measurement Network, it can be used to monitor inline and post process manufacturing dimensions and record measurement data.  It now includes Diagram and Charting capabilities in which pictures or graphics can be imported and displayed on the screen.
