Non-contact, precise laser metrology solution inspects parts 5x faster than mechanical probes for improved quality and production rates

Nextec Laser Metrology LLC, a corporation serving the quality inspection market, has announced its WIZprobe solution, an advanced non-contact, multi-position laser-scanning sensor that significantly reduces component inspection time while providing highest precision. WIZprobe offers a large dynamic range that makes it easy to collect thousands of data points quickly and accurately.

The Nextec WIZprobe relies upon vision and laser technologies featuring patented optics and image processing to deliver fast, accurate and highly reliable scanning and geometric measurements. It can handle a large variety of materials at varying angles and surface finish types including very shiny surfaces. Additionally, WIZprobe automatically performs self-calibration on-the-fly via real-time closed loop adaptive control.

WIZprobe is available as a stand-alone product kit with customized software packages and motion control for integration into any process control or can be easily integrated into a CMM system. Small in size and featuring a standard PH-10 rotary head interface, it can effectively replace conventional mechanical touch probes.
