About us

About us

Opus was formed in Corby, Northamptonshire in 1987 initially to manufacture gauge blocks and to offer a UKAS calibration service.

Opus rapidly earned itself an enviable reputation for quality and service and now exports its’ products and services all over the world.

Over the years the range of products and services have evolved,  the most significant development has been the flat lapping & special manufacturing services that are supplied.

A wide range of industries are serviced with jobs ranging from sub-micron tolerances to those which are to the nearest 10 or 20 microns.  Quantities range from a one off to batches of tens of thousands. All work can be verified in an extensively equipped temperature controlled laboratory.

The range of other products and services have also been extended to include ceramic gauge blocks, long series gauge blocks, engineer’s parallels, angle gauges,  optical flats and parallels, precision balls (spheres), and inspection services.

For those customers requiring a “complete package”, Opus can supply a wide range of other metrology equipment not manufactured by themselves, please contact the sales office for further details or specific requests.
