DAYTON, OH, April 24-Carbide Probes Inc., manufacturer of replacement contact point/styli, has been awarded ISO 9000: 2001 certi­fication. The company manufactures contact points for many indicators and coordinate measuring machines (CMM’s). The company has recently added replacement contracers and surface defect scribers to its inventory.

“We have received a tremendous response to our replacement Mitutoyo contracers,” says Rick Hudgell, director of marketing and operations. “Due to a lack of supply, our customers needed parts quickly. Our Lean operation processes enabled up to set up quickly and address their needs. Our ISO certi­fication process was progressing during this and proved to be a tremendous asset by enabling us to maintain our supply chain and process flows without any major issues.”
