Nanovea profilometer offers online inspection
3D non-contact profilometer
Nanovea has announced that its 3D non-contact profilometer will now have optional online capability for automated inspection and report generation.
With this advancement, the company said the profilometer can now integrate into quality control environments.
Crucial applications once inspected with vision and/or touch probe will now be inspected with the assurance of high-speed, non-contact nanometer measurement.
Nanovea said this is especially critical to batch production with tight tolerance levels that can be easily monitored to ensure quality control via online communication.
With this feature, applications can be automatically scanned and analysed based on instructions found on a server database.
The online inspection feature allows automatic product ID scan with a barcode reader (could also be manually entered in); the product ID is then checked against predefined pass/fail and measurement requirements stored on a company database.
The part is automatically measured, and upon completion a report is generated.
The report and the pass/fail information is automatically sent back to the server and stored with that part number.
Measurement speeds range from 1m/s and 31,000 points/sec with nanometer accuracies.
There are various scan types, analysis functions and size options that can be customised to fit applications throughout all industries.

Pacer is now supplying a range of microwave Doppler radar motion detector units (MDUs) from Microwave Solutions. The units utilise the Doppler shift phenomenon to ‘sense’ motion. The units operate at X-Band (10GHz) and K-Band (24GHz) and can be incorporated into a range of sensors in applications including lighting and energy management, home automation, intrusion alarms, collision avoidance, automatic door openers, traffic control, speed measurement and presence sensing.
Anton Paar’s Abbemat refractometers are high-precision measurement devices designed to measure sodium hydroxide (NaOH) concentration. NaOH is a staple of the chemical industry, and its applications range from the food and beverage industry to petroleum.
Renishaw has been invited by the Centre for Digital Documentation and Visualisation (CDDV), a collaboration between Historic Scotland and the Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio, to undertake the first mobile laser scanning of the Firth of Forth Rail Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland.
Over the years, dispersive Raman spectroscopy has increasingly been implemented for material identification thanks to its portability and sampling flexibility. When choosing a Raman instrument, one of the primary concerns is the wavelength of the laser that is integrated into the Raman spectrometer system. Even though the Raman shift of any material is only related to the material’s specific chemical structure and is independent of the excitation wavelength, different wavelengths have ...
