Photonics West 2017 is just around the corner and Lumetrics will be exhibiting in booth #616 from January 31st through February 2nd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Lumetrics will be showcasing the OptiGauge® II as well as a live demonstration with the CLAS-IR adaptive optics, operating at telecom wavelengths.
August 15, 2016, Rochester, NY: Lumetrics Inc., the leading manufacturer of precision measurement solution equipment known for offering precision thickness and wavefront measurement instrumentation, is proud to announce the launch of its highly anticipated Web Store. Lumetrics’ Web Store allows customers to easily order probes, fixtures, software, and other accessories in the U.S. (please note that web store shipments are limited to shipments to US State & territories). Lumetrics plans on adding international ordering to the Web Store in the future.
A customer approached Lumetrics with a desire to better understand the thickness profile during the molding process of manufacturing a plastic bottle. Due to cycling mechanical machinery within a 24-inch window around the pre-form, a standard probe (with standoff maximum of 2 inches) could not be used while the machine was running.
The successful implementation of non-contact thickness measurement and precision measurement solutions for our customers is heavily dependant on our team of hard-working and talented Engineers. The following application summary is from one of our Opto-Mechanical engineers after working with a customer to design a custom solution for their critical measurement challenges.

A customer needed a custom automated test system to reduce the inspection time during the setup of their production mold tools. At the time they were using a semi-automated system that would take 10-15 minutes to measure all 10 cavities of the mold tool. Lumetrics was asked to reduce the measurement time to 10 seconds or less with the use of our OptiGauge technology as well as add some addition measurement and functional capabilities.
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.
Lumetrics will be exhibiting at Photonics West this February in Booth #3018! Please stop by and say hello- we have lots of new measurement solutions for your manufacturing process.
