Advances in Micrometer Development

CCDAs a manufacturer of custom factory floor metrology systems we observed a need for a large format, high-speed, optical micrometer that is capable of accurately measuring large objects with an exceptional scan rate and a high degree of repeatability. In 2014 Autonetics started researching the feasibility of a new measurement system that could exceed the capabilities of conventential opitical micrometers avaliable in today's market. 

Our research throughout the third quarter of 2014 and into the first quarter 2015 has yielded a new measurement system with unique capabilities for high-speed non-contact inspection. Our research and development started with original designs for circuit boards, bi-telecentric optical systems, collimating lenses and the latest high intensity light sources.
