FocalSpec, Inc. Launches a Range of New High-Resolution 3D Line Confocal Imaging Sensors for Demanding Surface Metrology Applications

Cumming, GA, June 09, 2016 --( FocalSpec, Inc., a supplier of optical 3D surface measurement solutions with sub-micron resolution, is pleased to announce the formal North American launch of their new 3D Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) sensors.

The new sensors can be integrated into both in-production and standalone 3D scanning systems. They enable a non-contact measurement of surface profile, 3D dimensions, surface roughness, flatness, layer thickness, air gaps etc. on hard-to-measure parts, components and assemblies. LCI is a natively three-dimensional technology that simultaneously acquires 2048 3D surface points and offers resolution of up to 100 nanometers (0.004 mil) at the maximum rate of 2500 scans per seconds, depending on the sensor model and settings. The maximum length of the measurement profile line is 16.4 mm (0.63").

"As far as we know, Line Confocal Imaging is the only 3D scanning technology that can quickly, reliably and precisely measure highly reflective, mirror-like, transparent, porous and high-contrast surfaces and materials," said Juha Saily, Sales Manager for FocalSpec, Inc. "Potential applications for our sensors include semiconductors, printed electronics, PCBs, molded parts, adhesives, sheets, films, tubing; and assemblies containing glass, metal or glossy polymer surfaces."

The launch of the LCI Sensors coincides with FocalSpec exhibiting at the Sensors Expo 2016 in San Jose, CA, June 22 - 23. The company and its sensors can be found at the booth # 223.
