DAYTON, Ohio—(March 5, 2018) With lead times shrinking and the demand for parts with multiple features and tighter tolerances growing, fabricators have little time to spare for new equipment demonstrations. Yet the need to find the right quality inspection equipment is higher than ever. That’s why ABLE Machine Tool Sales Inc., the New England distributor for Dayton, Ohio-based AIMS Metrology’s Revolution Series coordinate measuring machines (CMM), is bringing the technology to its customers’ doorsteps.
Agawam, Massachusetts-based ABLE is a full service machine tool and metrology sales company. The AMMO wagon, short for Able Mobile Metrology Office, is a specialty air ride truck and trailer loaded with equipment like AIMS’ 5-axis mobile HB, Renishaw’s Equator and other key products that can be quickly demonstrated and then packed up for the next location.
“Time is a precious commodity to our customers,” says Alan Lockery, co-owner of Able Machine Tool Sales. “Metrology equipment is a must for today’s smart factory environments. With AMMO a fabricator can walk out the door or drive to a convenient location to see these products operate without sacrificing an entire work day. It also gives them an opportunity to talk to technical experts and ask questions about their applications.”
ABLE’s AMMO will be traveling to Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Fabricators can schedule a demonstration by contacting their local ABLE sales representative.
