In a recent Twin Cities Business Magazine article, Plymouth MN was described as a Med-Tech Mecca.  We recognized this almost 25 years ago when we chose to locate our company here. Materials Evaluation and Engineering, Inc. was founded to fill a local need for an independent, high-quality, materials characterization laboratory for advanced materials and critical components.   A quick check of our client list shows we have worked with 75 different companies within the city.

In a 2016 blog post we mentioned a visit from then Mayor, Kelli Slavik, as part of the city of Plymouth’s Plymouth Proud Campaign. The campaign was created to highlight the thriving and diverse Plymouth business community. We continue to value the support of the city and the local business community.

Keyence Digital Light Microscope

Senior Engineer, Dan Grice is seen here completing the installation of the newest microscope in our inspection lab, a Keyence 7000 series digital light microscope. This is the world’s first 4K ultra-high accuracy microscope. Compared to our current model the expanded features of the 7000 series include 20x greater depth of field, measurement tools allowing measurements directly on screen, 3D display to observe surface contours, adaptive lighting and multi-angle observation. The increased speed and resolution of this microscope will be especially beneficial when we facilitate large joint inspections in our lab.
