Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
As a leading manufacturer of measurement technology, having more than a decade of experience, Lumetrics®, Inc. announced today that it has received orders for, and begun shipments of, the OptiGauge™ to a major Korean manufacturer of cell phone components. The shipments, worth over half a million dollars US, will occur over the next two months. This order includes a system shipped in April 2013 that proved the capability of the OptiGauge™ to drastically improve this customer’s product throughput.
The equipment will allow this manufacturer to increase production by over 30% without additional plant expansion. “We are excited that the OptiGauge™ was able to increase production so dramatically for this customer,” said John Hart, Lumetrics’ CEO, “This is the largest single order, with a compacted schedule, that we have ever had.”
The OptiGauge™ is a major component in a very complex system that was developed in conjunction with a Korean integration team. “We have been working with our integration team for over a year to develop and prove out this concept,” said Steve Kelly, Lumetrics’ VP of Sales. “Additional systems are planned for this customer as well as a roll-out to similar customers in the market.”
The OptiGauge™ is a patented, non-destructive, light based technology designed by Lumetrics® for highly accurate measurement of multilayer materials including glass, optics, medical tubing, blister packages, formed trays and bottles, films and coatings.
The OptiGauge™ uses a high powered Light Emitting Diode (LED) to identify different materials based on index of refraction changes between the materials. Complex algorithms then process the data to determine the thicknesses of each of the layers. Due to the capability of the OptiGauge™ to measure a spot size of 20 – 80 microns, the diameter of a human hair, it is ideal for non-destructively measuring those impossible to reach locations such as the corners of a blister pack or food tray. The OptiGauge™ allows companies to understand their processes and correct problems before they occur in the field.
For more than a decade, Lumetrics® has been providing installations of its OptiGauge™ thickness measurement system to hundreds of companies throughout the world, including 6 of the top 11 medical device manufacturers, the top four ophthalmics companies, and the largest glass manufacturers in the world. Lumetrics is known worldwide for its proven non-contact measurement system, OptiGauge™, and its CLAS-2D™ Shack-Hartmann wavefront technology.
