Sensors we integrate

Point

Laser, interferometric, chromatic confocal point sensors. Ideal for profile measurements requiring excellent accuracy and vertical resolution.

Vision

Vision systems and cameras. Implemented for fiducial recognition, defect detection, and alignment processes.

Line

Laser and chromatic confocal line profile sensors. These are ideal for high density data collection and pair nicely with our precision linear stages.

Area

White light interferometry and fringe projection area sensors. Sense entire areas at once and stitch them together for even larger field of views.

Our machines and operator software are designed to be sensor agnostic. This enables our customers to apply the right sensor to the job every time.

Machine management and operator software

CaptureUI is a software application that enables automated scan control. At its core, CaptureUI brings sensor data acquisition and precision motion control together so that you don’t have to.

Scan planning

Use graphical tools to plan the scan path and data acquisition sequence. Save recipe files to be used over and over. Operator friendly tools.

Sensor management

Built-in sensor handling tools to make integrating a single or many sensors easy.

Machine coordination

Choose how you want the data and the machine will sync data acquisition and motorized positioning for you.

Measurement analysis

Output the scan data to many supported tools for full analysis of the results.
