OGP UK is the official supplier of OGP machines in the UK, dedicated to providing best-in-class support and service to new and existing customers.

Our metrology systems focus on measurement technologies that help manufacturers monitor dimensional compliance to design specifications.
Who are we?
As the UK’s sole partner for OGP products, OGP UK serves the whole of the UK direct from the Advanced Innovation Centre in Derby. We offer a wide range of solutions for all part inspection requirements, as well as service and maintenance, training, installation and subcontract measurement.
Who do we work with?
We have built up a loyal customer base of blue-chip companies throughout the UK who trust our knowledge and expertise to help them transform inspection capabilities. Our customers cover a wide range of industries, including aerospace, medical, automotive, rubber and plastics, injection moulding and many more.
Whether you are looking to streamline your inspection or improve the quality of parts you are producing, OGP can provide expertise and experience to find the right solution for you. We have unrivalled knowledge in how to maximise the productivity and reliability of your quality control processes, helping you to save the most time and amplify your inspection.
OGP measuring machines provide futureproof capabilities.
They do this by providing multi-sensor capabilities to meet any measurement requirement. Why have a traditional coordinate measuring machine (CMM) alongside a laser scanner and a profile projector? You could have one OGP SmartScope system to do the work of several machines. Not only does this reduce purchase cost, but releases valuable floor space.
Discover more about the history of OGP and OGP UK, from where the technology started to how it became world-leading multi-sensor measurement systems.
OGP is founded
OGP and Eastman Kodak introduce the telecentric relay lens principle. Still regarded as the optical system of choice for high precision optical systems, it provides a constant working clearance and erect images.
First OGP-built projector
OQ-30, a side screen Contour Projector with a revolutionary granite surface plate foundation, is introduced.
Q-See system introduced
OGP leads the way again with the introduction of the first video system designed specifically for ease of use and low cost.
Intelligent Qualifier 2000
Introduced as one of the world’s first multi-sensor coordinate measurement systems, the IQ-2000 can be equipped with vision, touch probe, and laser scanning sensors.
The birth of OGP UK
The founder directors set up Independent Calibration, offering services to coordinate measurement machine users. Within two years, the business is overseeing the maintenance of machines at companies such as Land Rover, Rolls-Royce and Ford.
OGP in the UK
Independent Calibration begins selling its own machines, capitalising on an opportunity to become the UK sales and service representative for both Sheffield Measurement and OGP Inc, with the company renaming as DISC (GB).
Several new products come to market from OGP, including SmartScope fully automatic 3D measurement for the benchtop and SmartRing LED illuminators.
New business premises
DISC (GB) moves to bigger premises in Derbyshire and purchases CNC Inspection Services, merging the two businesses and strengthening the grip on the market.
Sole focus on OGP
DISC (GB) becomes OGP UK and a decision to focus solely on selling OGP machines acts as a catalyst for rapid and significant business growth.
Exciting new products
OGP introduced the TeleStar Zoom Lens, Rainbow Probe and TeleStar TTL laser to sensor options, as well as launching the Vantage range of multi-sensor measurement machines.
The first 3D CAD-based metrology software, ZONE3, is launched, combining all metrology software functionality into one package designed to work with SmartScope multi-sensor measurement systems.
Advanced Innovation Centre opens
To expand capabilities and meet growing customer expectations, OGP UK moves into a purpose-built 4,000 sq ft Innovation Centre near Derby under the Carfulan Group umbrella.
