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.
The HotSpotIR high-speed scanning system from Land Instruments is used to detect emerging hotspots.
BOURBON, which operates a global fleet of more than 500 offshore support vessels for the oil and gas industry, has used Renishaw’s Fanbeam 5 system on its Liberty series vessels in West Africa.
Laser interferometers are often assumed to automatically provide the ultimate in measurement accuracy. However, in reality, the situation is more complex. When measuring linear displacements in air with a laser, the performance of the environmental compensation system is particularly important. The laser and interferometric measurement optics provide very high levels of linear resolution and precision, but it is the environmental compensation unit (weather station) that is primarily ...
Laser power monitoring is crucial in ensuring the optimal operation of any laser system. greenTEG gRAY laser power detectors from Pacer monitor laser power in real time, providing users with accurate performance data to enable more reliable system operation.
Anton Paar has launched two high-performance refractometers: the Abbemat 450 and the Abbemat 650. The instruments are designed to be robust and offer high precision up to ±0.00002nD in order to measure the refractive index under harsh conditions.
