FocalSpec announces new high-speed table-top 3D Line Confocal Scanner
the FocalSpec 3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA
FocalSpec, Inc., a supplier of 3D line confocal sensors and systems for challenging surface imaging applications, is set to launch a new general-purpose 3D metrology tool for offline and at-line uses, the FocalSpec 3D Line Confocal Scanner UULA.
UULA is based on FocalSpec’s patented Line Confocal Imaging technology that enables high-speed 3D imaging of surfaces that are difficult or impossible to measure with other currently available methods. With UULA, parts and assemblies having highly reflective, mirror-like, transparent, curved and sloping surfaces can be scanned in seconds at sub-micron resolution.
Quality control, failure analysis, and research & development of products containing polymers, metals, glass, composites or other materials greatly benefit from the high speed and accuracy of this automated, recipe-based tool. Applications include imaging of 3D form and dimensions; surface roughness and texture; etched, embossed and printed 3D features; flatness and thickness; mold parting line flash and burr; dispensed adhesive, polymer and fluid shape and volume; and heat seal integrity.
“UULA’s unique line confocal method combines the speed of laser sensors with the resolution and tolerance for surface material and angle of the confocal technology,” said Juha Saily, Sales Manager for FocalSpec, Inc. “I expect that companies involved in medical and microfluidic devices, printed electronics, PCBs, MEMS, semiconductor packaging, precision molding and stamping, and micromachining will likely be the earliest adopters of this new technology.”
The official product launch will take place at MD&M West in Anaheim, CA, February 6 – 8, 2018. FocalSpec will exhibit the UULA at their booth #334.
The scanner’s capabilities to automatically image heat seal integrity of medical packages will also be demonstrated at HealthPack 2018 in Kansas City, MO, March 6 – 8, 2018.
