What began as a dimensional inspection and metrology services lab has grown into a leading provider of 3D and CT scanning services for a diverse mix of industries.
Brothers Dave and Greg Nelson endeavored to build a reputation for detailed, high-quality inspection and thorough reporting within their family-owned business. Both have a passion for mathematics and problem solving, which are at the core of Nel PreTech's services.

Our industrial CT specialists aren’t just technicians, they’re physicists. They understand the science behind x-rays, how they behave, and how they interact with parts of different material types and densities. This gives them a unique perspective when it comes to obtaining the BEST scans possible and capturing part features that otherwise would not be picked up by an average scan.
Our CT specialists also understand statistical variability and data trends. This is key when performing the final data analysis.
The same individual stays with the project from the start of the scan until the final data interrogation.
Our mechanical engineers don’t just make measurements to your print. They understand the way your part works, how it was designed, the forces applied to it, and how it fits within the context of an assembly or gage. This gives us a unique advantage when it comes to measurement and the interpretation of data. This allows our engineers to supply the most useful data possible to our customers, whether they are machinists, designers, or QC professionals.
Our designers are also metrologists. They understand 3D scanning and the uncertainties involved in data capture. This gives us the ability to obtain metrology grade scans where other scanning service providers cannot. This level of accuracy is crucial to providing high quality, reverse-engineered CAD models and blueprints.
Although each one of our staff members has unique talents, we are all highly skilled CMM programmers. This is the common thread or baseline that runs through our entire organization. This gives us the flexibility we need to ALWAYS have a CMM programmer available for standard first article inspections, gage r&r, or capability studies.
