Stable Micro Systems: Innovation - Education - Application

Vienna Court


Located 50 kilometres south-west of London, Stable Micro Systems' 600 square metre headquarters offers full design, manufacture and product support facilities of high quality texture analysis and powder characterisation equipment.

Stable Micro Systems' roots lie in high quality design and development engineering. We hope that this will be evident when you see the engineering excellence built into every one of our accessories. Our design and development skills are honed by our own applications laboratory tests and by feedback from our customers.


Every accessory is detailed on our in-house CAD system and manufactured on one of five CNC machines at our machining facility. Only the finest quality materials and the best quality finishes are used in the manufacture of our probes and attachments; food quality or better Stainless Steels (polished and mirror finish), aerospace quality aluminium alloys (micro finished and hard anodised) and ICI or GE engineering plastics.

Every probe and attachment is rigorously inspected for dimensional accuracy, profile and finish during manufacture, again both during and after assembly and finally before despatch to the customer.

Product Development

Many simple tests may only require a cylindrical or conical probe, whereas more sophisticated operations will require attachments such as the Kramer Shear Cell which has International recognition or, like the Spaghetti Test Rig, have been developed to support specific applications. 

As a Texture Measurement professional, you may notice how frequently the inventions and innovations of Stable Micro Systems are copied by our imitators. However, such imitations often lose the sublety and elegance of the original design. For this reason, all attachments originated by Stable Micro Systems since 2007 are Community Registered Designs.

Our software is written in-house, giving us the ability to rapidly add required features suggested by our users, providing unmatched, continuously enhanced software dedicated to texture analysis and volume measurement. 

Our software department is constantly working on new versions of firmware and software to make them easier to use and more powerful. Whether you require to make routine measurements or undertake fundamental research, Stable Micro Systems provide you with the most comprehensive texture analysis and volume measuring software package to ensure the validity of your test results.
