Polytec Introduces Non-Contact Vibration and Topography Measurement Services

January 29, 2007 - Tustin, CA - Polytec, Inc., the global expert in optical measurement systems for macro and microstructure vibration testing, announces a new Measurement Services Program that makes advanced non-contact vibration and topography measurements available for every budget. The innovative program provides engineers with measurement results using Polytec's latest, non-contact measurement technology and, if needed, the expert advice and skill of a Polytec applications engineer. By eliminating the need for a capital purchase and/or the addition of dedicated manpower, the new Measurement Services Program gets precision results in the hands of engineers who have short-notice critical needs, require occasional measurements where a purchase is not justified, wish to evaluate Polytec products prior to purchase or prefer to contract a service.

Via the program, test structures are characterized with state-of-the-art equipment such as 1-D and 3-D scanning laser vibrometers, single-point vibrometers, microstructure (MEMS) motion analyzers and topography measurement systems, operated by knowledgeable and experienced application engineers. The measurement technology is fundamentally nondestructive, works on most surface finishes, eliminates mass-loading, improves data accuracy and minimizes contact transducer mounting, wiring, and signal conditioning. Vibrometer systems characterize virtually anything that vibrates up to 30 m/s or 30 MHz, down to picometer resolution. Tests may be run at the customer's facility or in one of three Polytec labs in North America: Detroit, Los Angeles and Boston. Complete measurement results are provided to the customer and may include frequency response functions, operational deflection shapes, time and frequency domain response, 3-D motion vectors, in-plane and out-of-plane MEMS dynamics, structure geometry and surface topography. Data can be exported in several formats for further processing such as FE correlation and modal analysis.
