As a user of Ametek products, all I can say is I wish I wasn't. I haven't seen cr-p til I fooled with their products. They make Yugos look like a Honda.
- The initial quality of the instruments is pathetic..it makes me scratch my head since those products under the former owners were top of the line.
- The applications used with these instruments sucks worse. Has Ametek heard of UX for example? Using their apps is like using RPN; "Reverse Polish Notation"; on a non-RPN calculator.
- Service is possibly the worst experience for a customer. Service personnel that know little if anything of the product. If they know about it, its weeks before a useful response percolates up. Spare parts are non-existent.. in the US at least.
