VIEW Marks Three Decades of Precision Metrology


Simi Valley, CA, March 09, 2006 - VIEW Engineering, Inc. today marked its 30th anniversary as a leader in the design and manufacture of high-precision measurement and inspection systems for process monitoring and quality assurance. Over the past 30 years, thousands of VIEW systems have been installed throughout the world, serving a wide range of industries.

A pioneer in non-contact metrology, VIEW introduced the world's first commercial measurement instrument using video technology, the VIEW RB-1, in 1976. Over the years, VIEW has become known for innovations in key technologies such as machine vision, lighting methods, image processing, pattern recognition, user-interface/programming software, and precision motion capabilities.

"We are constantly motivated to exceed expectations within markets that are forever changing and increasingly demanding," says VIEW President Vijay Patel. "Completing our 30th year is a major milestone for VIEW, and we continue to be firmly focused on developing inventions and innovations that will expand that success well into the future."

By acquiring Micro-Metric, Inc. in 2005, VIEW expanded its capabilities into nanometrology, broadening its product line to serve additional applications in the semiconductor, data storage, and MEMs industries. Customers also rely on VIEW systems for critical process control tasks in SMT assembly, medical device manufacturing, plastic molding, and precision metal cutting.

Today's VIEW product offerings combine patented device designs with metrology know-how gleaned from 30 years of real-world experience. Benchmark(tm), Pinnacle(tm), and Summit(tm) systems continue to set standards for highly accurate and flexible metrology platforms, with features such as dual magnification optics and high-speed stages. Power-packed software applications including VMS and Elements(tm) offer a choice of programming environments for creating customized measurement routines, or a direct CAD-to-measure translation that generates measurement routines automatically using common CAD file formats. Through tight integration of advanced optical and mechanical technologies, and uniquely capable metrology software, VIEW delivers high-accuracy solutions for customers with modern measurement challenges.
