Home of QMC Instruments Ltd & Thomas Keating Ltd
QMC Instruments Ltd develops instrumentation for the detection and processing of electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths ranging from microwaves to the near infrared. Our products include a long-established range of cryogenic detectors and associated components and instruments. These are used in diverse applications such as atmospheric remote sensing, astronomy, semiconductor materials characterisation, hot plasma fusion diagnostics and electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy.
Thomas Keating - Instruments draws on tool-making skills to design and develop quasi-optical Terahertz systems and subsystems. We have growing activity in High Field Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy and remote sensing instrumentation, including space-borne projects. These newer areas compliment our more established applications like Plasma Fusion diagnostics and material characterisation.
Thomas Keating - Toolmaking has a 75 year history of making high precision tooling (press tools, gauges and injection moulds). We aim to give a complete tool-making service, from initial design to tool tryout and maintenance support, combining traditional skills with modern machining techniques and management procedures. We produce precision components in areas such as medicine, aerospace, motorsport, and packaging.
