Located 40 kilometres south 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.

Probe for the Texture Analyser

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. Above all, we listen to you, the user, and constantly work to improve our products to suit your requirements. We are always enthusiastic to hear from users with suggestions on how we could improve or extend our range of accessories, and are always happy to quote for 'one-off' special designs.

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 with some amusement 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.


Our product testing laboratory provides an advisory service to all customers, generates detailed application studies and liaises with those at the forefront of texture analysis research.

Our software department is 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 comprehesive 32-bit texture analysis software package to ensure the validity of your test results.
