ADCOLE Corporation Included in Quality Magazine Leadership 100

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - ADCOLE Corporation, manufacturer of the world's highest accuracy machines for measuring camshafts, crankshafts, and pistons has been selected by "Quality Magazine" as one of the top 100 companies in quality leadership. Their selection was based upon demonstrating a continuous improvement and commitment to quality. Other recipients included Ford Motor Company, Boeing, and Pratt & Whitney.

ADCOLE Corporation designs and manufactures a full line of high accuracy machines for measuring camshafts, crankshafts, and pistons to within 0.1 micron resolution per data point, or 3,600 data points per revolution, depending upon the machine. These extremely tight tolerances are critical for measuring engine components in this era of greener technologies.

Green reciprocating engines require high tolerance components to reduce friction, improve performance and mileage, and reduce pollution. According to ADCOLE's Vice President, J. Brooks Reece, "Continuous quality improvement at ADCOLE is essential because production tolerances will continue to get tighter as demands for improved fuel economy and lower tailpipe emissions continue." 

About ADCOLE Corporation

ADCOLE Corporation is the global center of expertise for designing and manufacturing the world's highest accuracy machines for measuring camshafts, crankshafts and pistons, as well as digital sun angle sensors for space satellites. No other company can better measure critically important reciprocating engine components or the angle to the sun.

Founded in 1957, ADCOLE has manufacturing facilities in both Massachusetts and Florida and offices across the world, maintaining close relationships with their customers. The company's success, to a large extent, is based upon responding to their customers' requests for further refinements based upon their real-world experience. Most of these refinements have dealt with the need for higher accuracy and the need to measure more parameters including radius, profile, taper, crown, timing angle, diameter, velocity, acceleration, runout, and roundness and concentricity.
