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.
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.

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
From our file of “Thickness Measurement” challenges comes a depth measurement application. Here’s another aspect of thickness measurement that the OptiGauge is ideal for – high precision depth measurement. Read More
