Baty International has been in business since 1932. Originally, a manufacturer of high precision dial indicators and other associated instruments such as cylinder bore gauges. Baty soon diversified into non-contact measurement with Optical Profile Projectors and the Baty ‘Shadograph’ series has since become an industry standard in profile projectors. These products are still manufactured in Sussex, England in accordance with ISO 9001:2008.
In keeping with its gauging roots, Baty acquired John Bull and British Indicators, extending its gauging range to include calipers and flexible fixturing. The range was then completed in the eighties when Baty's first camera based Video Inspectors were developed. Video Edge Detection (VED) was soon added giving rise to increased accuracy, repeatability and measuring speed.
Acquired by Bowers Group in 2010, Baty is an ISO 9001:2008 accredited company that offers a range of Metrology Instruments from Hand Tools to Vision Systems, offering measuring solutions for almost every measurement application in modern manufacturing.
