Speed Wins in Contact vs. Non-Contact Surface Profiling

In surface morphology inspection, non-contact optical methodologies provide the same measurement results as a conventional contact profiler, but in a fraction of time. ​Surface finish quality matters in many industries, especially when consumer health and costly...

Scaling Up to a Smart Factory with Automated Assembly

Automated assembly stations provide higher productivity and product quality while lowering product cost in a fraction of the space required for conventional tooling. Staying competitive in the drive toward smart manufacturing often means fully automating assembly,...

Benefits of Consolidating Metrology Operations into One System

Automated metrology platforms not only ensure high quality finished goods, these high speed solutions also lower total cost per part by consolidating multiple metrology operations into one system. ​High volume part manufacturers often have diverse process flows, and...

Why Material Handling Stage Design Matters

When high volume manufacturers need 100% inspection of parts, non-contact metrology stage design should not only maximize sensor use, but also easily measure different parts on the same system. Whether it’s ensuring smartphones perform to meet customer satisfaction or...
