An example of Tenon’s willingness to invest in its important quality function is the company’s recently purchased advanced Mitutoyo ROUNDTEST RA-2200 CNC instrument.
Having searched for a suitably accurate and efficient means of measuring roundness and cylindricity, an in-depth demonstration convinced the staff of Tenon Engineering that the innovative Mitutoyo instrument delivered both the required levels of precision, and the ease and speed of use they were looking for.
Explaining the reason for the recent purchase, Tenon Engineering Ltd, Chief Engineer, Terry Healy explained. “From concept to completion, Tenon Engineering provide high-quality, complex assemblies and precision components. We work internationally, and up to 80% of our output is exported to major markets in the USA, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
