Our OptiLux Scratch Dig system has been designed to provide industrial metrology solutions for optics manufacturers who need to precisely evaluate and verify the scratch dig imperfections of different optical components. We give our customers complete control of the scratch dig surface quality inspection process. By combining a high-resolution sensor head with a precision X-Y motion system we provide a fully-automated, operator-independent surface quality measurement and analysis routine. This highly repeatable and traceable process delivers a non-disputable scratch dig quality assurance, as well as limiting the amount of optical component handling - this reduces the risk of accidental damage to fragile surfaces. With the accuracy of repeatable results, technicians can understand how close an imperfection is to the grading boundary, allowing them to refine their production process, for example by knowing exactly when to stop and when to continue polishing in order to meet the surface specification for very fragile surfaces. This immediate automation of the scratch dig inspection process has significant impact on reducing lead times and cost of production.
The OptiLux Scratch Dig evaluates and verifies imperfections of various optical components and gives complete control of the scratch dig surface quality inspection process.
