What we do
Abex UK was established in 1980 as an RF & microwave design consultancy.
That original mission has evolved significantly. In addition to the core design services, we now provide a broad range of in-house test, measurement and inspection facilities; equipment sales, rental, and service. We are experienced with a broad range of technical disciplines including high voltage, lasers, optics, night vision and high vacuum; whilst our core expertise remains with RF and microwaves.
Our sophisticated in-house engineering facilities include state-of-the-art CAD (3D mechanical, linear and non-linear circuit, systems and electromagnetic simulation tools); ATE; a broad and impressive inventory of test and measurement equipment; mechanical prototyping (turning, milling, 3-axis CNC); vacuum impregnation; die bonding; and some very high-end inspection equipment. In addition to a range of the highest quality optical microscopes, we are now equipped with both an x-ray and SEM capability. We undertake bespoke design for new equipments, design verification (as a third party), and the service or repair of your own much loved but over worked equipment.
In parallel with the engineering and design services, we are also a supplier of new and used equipment, accessories and components. This side of our business benefits greatly from the technical expertise we have aquired by being involved with design engineering. We are experienced users of the equipment we supply, and consequently able to offer detailed technical advice regarding selection, installation and applications. Most of the used items we offer for sale are fully tested in our own laboratory. Manufacturers data sheets and/or certificates of measured performance are usually available. We take pride in offering the highest quality service, with the backup and support of professionally qualified and highly experienced staff.
We purchase surplus equipment and components, and have new items arriving almost every day. If you don't find what you are looking for, call or email.
Most of the equipment available for sale may also be rented. Please call or email for further details.
For design, sales, service, rental, and repairs - call Abex (UK). We are a family run business based near Hook in the South East of England.
