Jewell Instruments Acquires Product Lines of applied Geomechanics

Jewell Instruments announces it has acquired the product lines of Applied Geomechanics, helping to expand Jewell's line of sensor products.

Jewell Instruments, LLC (Manchester, NH) announces that is 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 tilt meters 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 tilt meter 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 the products under the Jewell name,” says Carlo I. Carluccio, CEO of Jewell Instruments. “The high resolution tilt meters and clinometers are complimentary to Jewell’s line of high performance inertial sensors.”
