Jewell Instruments, LLC (Manchester, NH) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the product lines formerly supplied by Applied Geomechanics (San Francisco, CA), a division of Carbo Ceramics. Relocation to the Jewell facility will occur in December and Jewell is expected to begin production in early January 2013.
The Applied Geomechanics (AGI) products are tiltmeters and clinometers and include full signal conditioning electronics and are used in a variety of applications in buildings, tunnels, dams, slopes, embankments, volcanoes, landslides, mines, and construction projects around the world. These products serve a wide spectrum of clients including highway authorities, major civil engineering consultants and contractors, mines (both surface and underground), railways, auto racing teams, NASA, surveyors, experimental physicists, radio astronomers, JPL, and naval architects. Jewell’s new tiltmeter and clinometer products offer resolution reported in microradians or even nanoradians, reflecting the extremely high sensitivity of some of these instruments.
“We are excited to be able to offer these tilt sensors under the Jewell name,” said Carlo I. Carluccio, CEO of Jewell Instruments. “The high-resolution tiltmeters and clinometers are complimentary to Jewell’s line of high-performance inertial sensors.”
