GTMA measurement specialist Bowers Group has helped precision engineering company Bernard Holmes Precision Ltd succeed in its aim for zero customer rejects.
Bernard Holmes specialises in both CNC and conventional machining in a wide range of materials, with customers from a variety of sectors.
Many of the precision components it meas- ures require bore measurement, and the company possessed a wide variety of meas- urement methods.
Production Director Russell Thackray recalls: “We decided to start replacing some of our heavily used bore mics, bought over 15 years ago with new ones.
“It’s not until I had a walk around that I realised how many we have and how often
they get used. They are the best bore mics out. And what a great investment! They’ve paid for themselves!”
The company has a long reputation of machin- ing complex components with great accuracy. It has a team of extremely skilled precision engineers who ensure all components are
made exactly to the customers’ requirements. The inspection team ensure components are checked before they leave the factory as the company aims for zero customer rejects.
When a new employee recommended Bowers Group micrometers, Bernard Holmes Precision took the advice and ordered several, including the XT Standard Analogue Bore Gauges and XT Digital Bore Gauges.
Staff are so pleased with the micrometers that Bowers Group has truly lived up to its well-known reputation as the world's leading bore gauge manufacturer.
The bore gauges are now used all over the factory for convenient shop floor measure- ment, as well as keeping one set safely in the inspection department.
