Acoustic Micro Imaging System inspects IGBT modules.

January 21, 2015

Featuring fully automated design, C-SAM® Model DF2400Z images and analyzes voids and other structural defects of power IGBT modules. Inverted transducer, placed beneath module, prevents water from reaching module circuitry. Once recipe for scanning has been defined, factory automation interface controls operation with no need for human attention. Because imaging is typically carried out before encapsulation, acoustic images reveal what type of rework is needed on rejects. Read More

High-Res Instruments simultaneously inspect surface, contour.

January 12, 2015

Offering automated simultaneous surface and contour inspection, Talysurf i-Series features low noise axes and high-resolution gauge that promote measurement integrity. Choice of 1, 2, and 5 mm gauge ranges promotes application versatility, and 18-bit gauge improves resolution in surface detail, contour, and 3D measurement. Software for analysis of surface finish and form is included, and balanced beam design allows instruments to be used in any orientation. Read More

Integrated Measuring System features inductive design.

November 17, 2014

Available for ball and roller rail systems, IMS-I provides feedback for distances up to 4,500 mm, and allows several runner blocks to be positioned independently of each other on same rail. Scale is integrated into profiled rail and protected by tightly welded stainless steel strip across entire rail section length. Rated for positioning accuracy of 0.25 µm with scale precision of ±3 µm/m, inductive measuring system operates without physical contact and is therefore wear-free. Read More

Next Generation in laser alignment tools is introduced

October 16, 2014

Comprised of laser transmitter, digital receiver, and smart display, Microgage PRO enables measurement and alignment of long assemblies, machinery, and fixtures over long distances. Laser beam forms straight reference line for machine or assembly, and each of 4 receivers measures in 2 axial directions: horizontal and vertical (X and Y). Laser beam path can be few inches up to 180 ft, and touchscreen display provides accurate readings as small as 0.0001 in. Read More

Geometric Alignment Kit targets 3-axis CNC gantry machines.

July 9, 2014

Utilizing straight and weightless laser beam rather than piano wire, heavy steel straight edges, and granite, Pinpoint Gantry Kit measures straightness, perpendicularity, level, and other parameters to accuracy of 0.001 in. over longitudinal travel of 150 ft. Operators can use measurement values directly to make machine adjustments, or upload data to PC for display and further computation and compensation. Entire system is battery operated, with USB interface for PC connection. Read More

Lab Measurement System inspects interior wall of bore holes.

June 20, 2014

In addition to detecting diameters of cylindrical inside geometries, boreCONTROL LAB can be used for surface assessment and defect detection. Benchtop device provides high precision statements about quality of bore holes or cavities in diameter range of 4–16 mm. System offers non-contact measurement using small light spot, high resolution in radial and axial directions, and sampling rate up to 10 kHz. Granite table enables temperature-resistant and vibration-free measurements. Read More

3D Surface Measuring Systems use white light/confocal microscopy.

June 4, 2014

MarSurf® WM 100, which uses white light interferometer, and MarSurf CWM 100, which includes white light and confocal microscopy, are intended for measuring optical, technical, and reflecting surfaces and provide 3D topographical analysis. Both systems provide non-contact measurement of surface structures with sub-nanometer resolution. While confocal microscopy better serves measurement of dark surface structures, white light interferometry suits polished, shiny surfaces. Read More

Benchtop Vibration Table supports testing of small components.

May 8, 2014

Measuring 16 x 16 in., Model TCB-1.3 may be used as stand-alone vibration table for vibration testing or placed inside environmental chamber for combined vibration and temperature testing. Equipped with all-axis vibration system, TCB-1.3 utilizes 4 pneumatically actuated vibration hammers providing 6 dof random vibration with X, Y, Z axis and roll, pitch, and yaw rotation. Chamber comes standard with 2 accelerometers, 1 for control and 1 vibration monitor with vibration range of 1–60 GRMs. Read More
