Whether transporting parts or people, linear motor technology provides many benefits. The technology has been used on both high-speed trains and high-speed measuring machines to provide speed and accuracy without generating unwanted heat or friction.
BOA, the new optical inspection system from Dalsa, aims to make inspection easy, yet cost-effective. The system differentiates itself in the market by offering customers an all-in-one vision system without the price tag that would typically come with such a system.
In my family’s big trip to Europe, we started in the Czech Republic, and then, at the travel agent’s suggestion, continued on to Italy and France. Germany was briefly on the schedule, but the allure of Paris won out.
Small part measurements can lead to big problems if done incorrectly. With parts getting smaller and tolerances getting tighter, it is important to consider the measurement method and device carefully. InsituTec’s MicroTouch sensor is able to measure micro and nanoscale parts and features that currently cannot be measured using other technologies. The sensor is a dimensional measurement scanning probe based on the company’s standing wave technology.
