Infrared Temperature Sensors

Williamson Corporation is a manufacturer of infra-red temperature sensors that has been in business since 1951.

  • Family Owned

This is a family owned company that is interested in advancing the technology of infra-red temperature sensing. Their goal is to make the best non-contact temperatures sensors on the market, sensors that no other manufacturer is making. The products are made in the historical town of Concord, MA. Can't get any more American than that.
  • Concentrates Only on IR Sensors

Most companies that make IR sensors are large conglomerates that make these products in a minor division. At Williamson, IR temperature sensing is the only focus. Nothing else gets in the way. It is this product, nothing else. Because of this focus, their technology is several steps ahead of everyone else.
  • Advanced Technology

Williamson puts their energy into one thing – making IR temperature sensors. Companies come to Williamson because their sensors work where others fail. As their representative, one of my biggest problems is convincing people that a Williamson sensor can get the job done when so many others have failed in the past. Their dual wavelength sensors use a single sensor approach that allows for accurate measurement down to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. No one else is making a multi-wavelength sensor that can make accurate measurements of bright metals like aluminum.
  • Broad Product Line

While their high-end sensors are like no others, Williamson does have a very broad product line with some of the most economical industrial temperature sensors on the market. Because it is a family owned company, they do not need layers and layers of profits to take care of other divisions and stock holders. Their high-end sensors will work where nothing else will, while the less expensive sensors make accurate measurement economically feasible.
  • Wavelength Matters

Throughout their history, Williamson has known that sensing IR energy at different wavelengths can produce accurate information under difficult conditions. I first started using Williamson sensors back in 1973 while working for a company that made controls for electric infra-red heating systems. Only Williamson sensors could report the true temperature of the target in the presence of intense infra-red energy given off by the heaters.

This focus on wavelength has been a common theme in the company during its long history.

Wilcoxon Research Logo

We started with Wilcoxon in the mid 90's when they were one of the preeminent vibration sensor companies in the marketplace. In 2012 I reduced Stapleman Corporation to representing three companies to which I had the closest ties. About the same time, Meggitt began asserting their name on Wilcoxon products. Since then, they have added a slew of new products to the Wilcoxon brand while still adhering to the Wilcoxon ideal of total value for your investment.


 Pulp & Paper Analyzers

OpTest was born of necessity. Visual test and analysis of pulp, paper and board was very subjective. Panels of employees would look at paper and rate sheets for cleanliness, formation, print quality, or other properties that affect the end use of the product. OpTest designs optical testing instruments that have high repeatability, reproducibility, and adhere to Tappi and international standards. That way the results are meaningful and can be compared.

  • Designed to Industry Standards

TAPPI/ISO standards mean the analyzer is built to meet tests that are recognized industry wide. You know what to expect, whether it is a laboratory instrument or an on-line analyzer.
  • Highest Precision

From instrument to instrument you get the same results. Different divisions of the company can ensure that the results will match.
  • Durable

Some of the original instruments are still in service after 20+ years of operation. They can be calibrated to specific standards.
  • Personalized Service

From people that really care about your experience with the product. No call centers or computerized answering systems.
  • Laboratory and On-Line Analyzers

Get the same answers from on-line process control monitors and lab testing.
