Lumetrics Granted New Patent: Toric Intraocular Lens Measurement Apparatus and Method

Posted January 26, 2017 by Kristin
This latest Lumetrics patent is for a device to physically rotate an intraocular lens inside the confined space afforded in a measurement cuvette.  There are times when rotating the data gathered using software is insufficient and the sample must physically be rotated.  This device maintains the alignment of  intraocular lens optical axis with that of the measurement device with which it is paired.  During the rotation the need for realignment is reduced or eliminated.  Read more about this new patent here.

Precision Wedge Angle Measurement by Lumetrics Principal Scientist, Dr. Michael Marcus

Posted May 23, 2016 by Kristin

A customer approached Lumetrics with a need to determine  and certify the precision wedge angle measurement of low angle wedges in the range of 0.5 - 3.5° with a high degree of accuracy.   A custom fixture was designed and constructed which included x, y, z  and rotation stages with micrometer precision position feedback as shown in the diagram.

Online Tubing Thickness Measurement

Posted February 15, 2016 by Kristin

Lumetrics is the leader in online tubing thickness measurement systems for the ophthalmic, glass, and medical device market.  Our engineering team has developed a new fixture that eliminates the problems of line sensitivity that give all online systems trouble.  The new fixturing provides for easy loading and accommodates line changeovers to different size tubing. Water is the enemy of all hydrophilic tubing production, and the OptiGauge provides the crucial inner diameter, outter diameter, and wall thickness readings that customers require.

Tested Samples: Rock salt thickness measurement

Posted February 26, 2014 by Kristin

A few Lumetrics engineers were sitting around talking about what sorts of things we have measured and what interesting, or ordinary, things we can measure the thickness of. So, as we are asked to make thickness measurements of different objects, or as we think of things that would be fun to measure, we'll be bringing them to you.  Next up- rock salt! Read More
