Advanced Precision Machining Acquires New CMM Technology

Longmont, Colorado based machine shop announces procurement of Zeiss Metrology Spectrum II CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)

LONGMONT, CO - January 23, 2012 - Advanced Precision Machining, a full-service Longmont, Boulder, and Denver area CNC machine shop, is pleased to announce today the acquisition of a new precision coordinate measuring machine (CMM), adding to its increasing inventory of cutting-edge CNC machining tools. Owing to the recent upswing in the manufacturing sector, Colorado based APM has experienced steady growth since beginning operations in 2005, allowing for recent expansion. Through the years, Advanced Precision Machining has provided comprehensive machine shop services from blueprint, to machining high quality parts, to inspection services. Attention to detail, and a strong customer commitment now enables the company to upgrade its facilities with this long sought after precision manufacturing tool.

This year's International Machine Technology Show in Chicago showcased the best machine shop tools in the industry, and provided APM the inspiration for purchasing one of the best CMMs in the business; a Zeiss Spectrum II Coordinate Measuring Machine. Kirk Tuesberg, co-owner at APM states, "In our quest to provide our customers the best service and quality in the precision machining industry, we are of the opinion that the Zeiss machine delivers unmatched accuracy, reliability, and efficiency."

Manufactured by Carl Zeiss Metrology, an American company in Maple Grove, Minnesota, they are widely heralded and considered one of the best producers of CMM technology today. Released in 2011, the Spectrum II is a new touch-trigger CMM combining the latest in high-tech materials and features, providing customers with cutting-edge CNC measurement results. Co-owner Gerry Dillon adds, "Our fully certified machinists have earned a reputation for meeting and exceeding our customers' needs for highly accurate parts, and the acquisition of this machine allows for the further pursuit of perfection, which this industry demands." The Zeiss CMM not only delivers a high degree of accuracy, but it has the potential to land more contracts with larger companies requiring CMM inspection reports and material certifications. This new partnership with Zeiss Metrology and the Spectrum II CMM gets APM closer to becoming an ISO 9001 certified machine shop, opening their doors to all companies across the US, with the potential to become APM clients.
