Custom probe design used in-situ at plastic injection molding facility

Posted June 22, 2016 by Kristin

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.

Custom Precision Probe with Built-In Reference

Posted March 29, 2016 by Kristin

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.

Successful applications: Custom automated test system

Posted March 15, 2016 by Kristin

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.

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.
