Vision Engineering Manufacturing Services

Since the 1990’s Vision Engineering has been providing customers with access to their comprehensive range of contract design, manufacturing, assembly and commercialisation capabilities. It began when a globally recognised jewellery brand approached us to repackage our industrial microscopes into a bespoke solution for the retail environment. This retail unit was a great success and is now in its 6th generation with thousands in daily use worldwide.

Working Across All Sectors
Vision Engineering Manufacturing Services (VEMOS) has undertaken projects for customers across industry including ; an analyser to measure the cleanliness of surgical instruments; a device to effect the isolation of micro-organisms from food samples via vibration; a device to test an active protein that will help clear plastic waste from oceans; and, last but by no means least, a range of men’s grooming products.

Optical Components

Sub-Contract Capabilities.  In 2018, the company moved to new premises with state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, which led to an increase in non-optical  sub-contract piece-part machining projects.  The demand for this service continues to grow, particularly with the current focus on re-shoring and the simplifying of complex supply chains.

Fast and Flexible

Most recently, the team rose to the challenge of the COVID-19 crisis, working on manufacturing and delivering essential components for continuous Positive Airway Pressure (cPAP) medical devices. Additionally, they manufactured 2500 new oxygen flow monitor assembly’s in just 10 working days

  • Work with IGES or STEP CAD models to create measurement programmes away from the CMM before you’ve even got the component. Rather than taking measurement points on a component, you can now just click on the surface of the model where you would like the points to be taken.
  • The Aberlink CAD Comparison software module enhances Aberlink 3D with the capability to compare measured points to a CAD model. This may be the best way to measure complex geometries, or to inspect parts for which drawings do not exist.
  • Powerful alignment routines allow measurement points to be best-fitted to the model. Colour coded errors can then be displayed on the model to produce both graphical and tabulated reports that are extremely clear and very easy to understand.
