LK Metrology is a pioneer in the CMM industry.

Sempre has partnered with LK to provide CMMs across the UK and Ireland with three locations for demonstration as well as full service and support local to you. With a depth of knowledge and keenness to continue to develop the CMM measurement options further, LK Metrology provide more technologically advanced CMMs than other traditional CMMs would.

These premium bridge type and gantry CMMs:

Reduce measurement cycle times with high velocities/accelerations

Meet your industry standards with excellent accuracy and repeatability

Provide a comprehensive measurement solution for probing, scanning and digital inspection.

Now available with Renishaw REVO® 5-axis measurement system

LK metrology is a pioneer in the manufacture of CMMs with many industry firsts including:

  • first to design of the first Bridge Type CMM
  • first OEM to integrate a computer with a CMM
  • first to develop inspection software specifically for CMM use

They were the first to use:

  •  all air bearing and granite guideways for stability and stiffness
  • carbon fibre composite spindles
  •  microprocessor controlled drive systems

They were the first to produce

  • High Accuracy, Horizontal Spindle CMM
  • Atruly thermally stable CMM

LK also worked in partnership with Rolls-Royce Ltd to develop Renishaw’s First Touch Trigger Probe for use on a CMM.


These high accuracy systems are flexible for every manufacturing industry.

Bridge type systems can cover a range of sizes or parts while delivering very high accuracy measurement great for companies producing many components as all can be comprehensively measured on one system.

The gantry systems allow you to measure large components including vehicle chassis and bespoke size options allow for extremely large parts such as those used in wind turbines and more.
