AIMS Metrology, a Dayton, Ohio-based OEM for coordinate measuring machines, has acquired the assets of Measurement Specialties Inc. (MSI).  Also based in Dayton, MSI calibrated, certified and programmed Sheffield [and other brands] CMMs and provided retrofit and repair services. In 2017, AIMS purchased CMI Technologies to expand control quality and delivery timeframes for components it produces for its Revolution Series 5-axis CMMs. MSI will expand AIMS’ service footprint.

“MSI has more than 100 years of combined experience in the measurement and inspection industry,” says AIMS Vice President Mark Gearding. “Adding that tribal knowledge to our team allows us to ramp up customer support for our Revolution Series CMMs as well as Sheffield machines and other brands. It also allows us to add employees with high-value skill sets. Since the pandemic, we’ve seen an uptick in our retrofit and upgrade business.”

AIMS plans to cross-train its service engineers to enhance support capabilities. The OEM will also be able to increase its’ capabilities for the development and application of custom part programs.
