Calder Supplies Industrial X-Ray Machine Shielded Enclosures for Nikon Metrology

Calder’s Special Products Factory in Chester has won a prestigious order to manufacture the shielded enclosures for state-of-the-art 450 kV X-Ray and Computed Tomography machines for Nikon Metrology.  The machines which are of a brand new design, feature a heavy structural steel frame, an internal lead shielded enclosure and are fully clad in formed painted panels. The machines also feature a sliding shielded pneumatically operated door.  The challenging design also necessitated: high quality precision machining for a great many operational parts, heavy structural fabrication, sheet metal, lead fabrication and shielding expertise as well as project management and assembly skills. All of these are available in-house at Calder’s Chester facility making Calder the natural choice for a partner. “As well as having excellent shielding against a very powerful X-Ray source, aesthetically the machines look absolutely amazing said Calder’s MD Maurice Bailey”. The machines were designed by Nikon Metrology’s own designers so team working and good project management skills were key to delivering this product from concept to successful completion.

We are proud to be associated with this project and the Calder team has worked hard to deliver a quality product against very short lead times to exacting quality standards. We look forward to working with Nikon Metrology on this fantastic project.
