Contract Manufacturing Services

Dorsey Metrology offers contract manufacturing services

CNC Machining

Fully automated CNC Mill Turn Centers are the backbone of our production capabilities. The automated bar loaders, chip conveyors and live tooling on these machines allows unattended "Lights out" 24/7 operation.

Many traditional milling and EDM parts can now be manufactured on our multi axis mill turn centers.

Production Grinding

Grinding capability further enables us to provide our customers with a single source solution for all of their machining needs.

We excel in holding fine finishes and close tolerances for flatness and parallelism. We can grind heat sensitive materials, stainless steels, non magnetic metals or plastics.

We also offer blade sharpening services.

Assembly Services

Our factory is equipped to handle mechanical and electromechanical assembly of complete systems or sub-components. Our expertise ranges from basic wiring harnesses to complex system integration systems.

PLC programming, component soldering and testing are also available.

We are fully equipped to calibrate the full line of Dorsey and Standard Gage products. We offer ISO 17025 Accredited Calibrations (see our Scope of Accreditation for details) as well as Long Form Certifications. Our calibration laboratory has an independent environmental system that controls temperature and humidity. Ultra precision equipment allows us to attain length measurement values to .0000010” (one millionth of an inch). All primary standards are N.I.S.T. traceable. Equipment as follows:

  • 16” optical comparator, .0001” resolution, 10-100x magnification.
  • Multi-function digital laser interferometer universal measurement system (UMS) for length measurement of up to 48” with .000001” resolution.
  • Multi-function vertical column electronic height gage for measurements up to 28” with .00001” resolution.
  • Miscellaneous layout equipment.

Engineering/Design To Build

Our expertise combines the largest selection of precise linear measurement movements, frame configurations and sizes, material and accessories with the knowledge of how to apply them to solve any part inspection requirement. In addition to providing catalog items, we stand ready to be of service by suggesting customized gages for any application. As an organization we value our reputation as precision problem solvers. Our ability to develop custom concepts and configurations, available in a variety of frame materials such as aluminum, steel and carbon fiber make us a leader in the industry. To take advantage of our service simply forward a part print with the dimensions you wish to check circled. We will return a quotation listing gages we suggest, complete with approach sketches of any special or semi-special application.


We are fully equipped to economically repair the full line of Dorsey and Standard Gage products.
