Lumaxis To Develop High Performance Projection Engines For 3D Metrology Systems

Share Article

Lumaxis allows device manufacturers to outsource the design and production of high resolution, state-of-the-art projection engines (PEs) into their inspection systems; enables manufacturers to focus on core competencies while being more responsive to market-driven demand for faster, more accurate optical inspection capabilities.


Lumaxis projection engines improve design flexibility and performance

By focusing exclusively on designing high-performance PEs, Lumaxis is able to deliver high quality projectors within months, enabling manufacturers to focus on their core competencies.

Lumaxis today announces that it will custom-design Projection Engines for manufacturers of 3D metrology inspection systems. Lumaxis’s projection engines provide manufacturers of solder paste inspection (SPI) systems, microelectronics inspection (MEI) systems, and 3D automated optical inspection (e.g., inspection of small molded parts) systems with an industry-leading combination of resolution, speed, precision, reliability and design flexibility.

“By focusing exclusively on designing high-performance PEs into existing 3D metrology systems, Lumaxis is able to deliver high quality projectors within months – versus years – enabling manufacturers to bring high-end optical inspection scanners to market more quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively than if they designed them internally,” said Marc Foglia, Lumaxis President.

Lumaxis is a division of NVIS, manufacturers of professional near-eye and projection displays. Lumaxis leverages more than 15 years of NVIS experience developing high-resolution, compact optical systems using Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) spatial light modulators from Forth Dimension Displays. NVIS and Forth Dimension Displays are wholly owned subsidiaries of Kopin Corporation, a global provider of wearable technologies. This relationship ensures that best practices are always maintained and competitive, cost effective, and high value products are used in the design of the projection engines.

Lumaxis’s core value proposition is offering manufacturers of 3D optical metrology inspection systems the ability to squeeze more performance out of their hardware at the same or lower cost than any other approach. The following are the key technology and market differentiators:

  • Lumaxis PEs improve system performance (better resolution, depth of vision/field, brightness, size, weight, etc.) by leveraging extensive experience in microdisplay- based compact projection systems.
  • Lumaxis gives manufacturers the flexibility and agility that comes from outsourcing.
  • Proven ability to deliver: Lumaxis’s “parent” company, NVIS, Inc., has 15+ years of experience using Forth Dimension Displays’ microdisplay technology in compact, lightweight, high performance projected image applications.
