Delivering accurate, fast, data-rich metrology solutions that keep the world moving safely.

OmniLux


Fast and accurate 3D capture

Our OmniLux system is highly versatile and provides unparalleled levels of 3D capture for component measurement in seconds. It’s highly versatile because it can measure any geometry including sphere, asphere, cylinder, internal bore, cone/taper, step height or freeform in any material such as polished or rough metals or ceramics and polymers. It’s fast and accurate because the use of optical sensors means that the whole surface can be analysed while the object is suspended in space, ensuring that no damage occurs to delicate surfaces. Our easy-to-use software interface, developed from years of experience enables the operator to effortlessly control the system. Rich data analysis, automation and export of results for the immediate generation of reports as well as a compact footprint means OmniLux is the leading solution for production or R&D environments where reducing cycle times is critical to sustainable success.


Applications

The highly versatile OmniLux can measure a wide range of components. Example applications are bearings, turbine blades, valves, toolholders, and many more.

OrthoLux


Ultraprecise, non-contact optical metrology for the orthopaedics industry

The OrthoLux is an optical coordinate measuring machine that measures component form of artificial joints and medical implants in a variety of materials, with resolutions as low as 10nm. The use of optical sensors means that ultra precise measurement happens at very high speed, ensuring the delicate surface of the component is not damaged. We designed OrthoLux specifically for orthopaedics R&D and production environments to deliver speed, accuracy and rich data reporting that is critical for customers in this space, but at the same time lowers the cost of analysis. OrthoLux provides unrivalled performance; speed and accuracy to analyse and check a component in seconds, advanced data reporting for sophisticated retrieval analysis and integration into automated manufacturing cells.


Applications

OrthoLux measures component form of artificial joints in a variety of materials, for example bearing surfaces of artificial hip heads and cups, including the cup rim, stem taper, as well as artificial knee joints (femoral and tibial components).

OptiLux SD


Accurate, objective, traceable scratch-dig measurement and verification

Our OptiLux SD system has been designed for industrial optics manufacturers who need to precisely evaluate and verify the imperfections of different optic components. It gives complete control of the scratch-dig inspection process by combining a high-resolution sensor head with a precision X-Y motion system to provide a fully-automated, operator-independent surface measurement and analysis routine. This highly repeatable and traceable process delivers a non-disputable quality assurance, as well as limiting the amount of component handling which reduces the risk of accidental damage to fragile surfaces. With the accuracy of repeatable results, technicians can understand how close an imperfection is to the grading boundary, allowing them to refine their production process, for example by knowing exactly when to stop and when to continue polishing in order to meet the surface specification for very fragile surfaces. This immediate automation of the scratch-dig inspection process has significant impact on reducing lead times and cost of production.


Applications

The OptiLux SD evaluates an verifies imperfections of varioius optical components and thus gives complete control of the scratch-dig inspection process.


Specifications

  • Repeatable and traceable Quality Assurance for optical components
