Precision Optical and Multi-Sensor Measurement Systems at Make Measurement Matter

Spectrum Metrology will be showcasing its new non-contact three-dimensional measurement system, the Conoscan 4000, at Make Measurement Matter this Autumn (17 October at the Centre for Manufacturing Excellence, Rainham, Essex).

The ConoScan 4000 is a high precision, non-contact scanner, capable of measuring a variety of materials with complex geometries for applications such as reverse engineering, part inspection and research. The scanner includes Optimets conoscopic holography sensors – which have the unique ability to scan very steep angles up to 85 degrees - integrated in a sophisticated scanning platform.

The Conoscan is part of a range of contact and non-contact dimensional products available from Spectrum Metrology, which includes portable CMMs, multisensory CMMs, shaft measurement machines and 2D Geometry systems (full details). This comprehensive range allows Spectrum Metrology to study individual measurement requirements and find the right product for the job. Applications range from intricate precision components to large scale engine parts.

Spectrum Metrology will be available at Make Measurement Matter to discuss their full range of measurement products; customers are also warmly invited to send samples of their precision components to Spectrum Metrology for no obligation evaluation and measurement or to visit the stand to discuss their application.

Spectrum Metrology are specialists in the field of electro-optical metrology, surface roughness, roundness, contact and non-contact metrology applications and are agents for Taylor Hobson (workshop surface finish/roundness, Alignment, Angle and Level), FARO (Gages) and Brunson (laser tracker accessories).
