July 10, 2013

FALL RIVER, Mass., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Millstone Medical Outsourcing announced today that the company has welcomed a variety of advanced equipment to its mechanical inspection cells in both Fall River and Olive Branch facilities.

With demand for advanced mechanical inspection on a rapid rise, Millstone has added another high speed, high accuracy coordinate measuring machine, the Zeiss Contura G2, and a CCP CC-14 digital optical comparator to its fleet of equipment in Fall River, MA. Alongside Millstone’s Brown & Sharpe measuring systems, the Zeiss Contura, featuring VAST scanning technology accommodating lateral styli up to 65 millimeters, enhances the timeliness and precision of inspection processes, getting OEM’s product to market faster. Housing various brands of equipment, Millstone can now provide OEMs the option to utilize sharable programs while ensuring the number of rejected parts is reduced and production quality is at its absolute best.

In Olive Branch, a 14″ Jones and Lamson EPIC-114P Comparator and Phase II 900-372 Rockwell Twin Hardness Tester have been added to the inspection cell to certify all products meet hardness standards and all product measurements fall within designated tolerance limits during inspection. These additions heighten the productivity and accuracy of Millstone’s mechanical inspection line and enhance all processes throughout the entire Olive Branch facility.

“As the advanced mechanical inspection needs of our customers continue to grow, we improve our processes and equipment simultaneously in order to deliver the most efficient, highest quality services possible,” said Kelly Lucenti, President of Millstone Medical Outsourcing. “The additions to both of our locations ensure both facilities are well-equipped with the necessary inspection tools to remove measurement obstacles for our customers, meet their rapidly increasing demands, and get their products to market faster and more efficiently.”
