Ametek Taylor Hobson Introduces Talysurf Pgi Optics 3d Metrololgy Instrument

Leicester, England | Posted on December 10th, 2010

Taylor Hobson, a global leader in ultra-precision measurement instrumentation, has further expanded the capabilities of its Talysurf family of metrology instruments with the launch of the Talysurf Optics 3D. Based on the established PGI Blu, the new PGI Optics 3D offers the combination of a wider range of part diameters, up to 200 mm, with new features supporting 3D measurement. Repeatability can be typically lower than 50nm.

The versatile Talysurf PGI Optics 3D provides maximum flexibility with measurements possible on optics ranging from small (<2 mm diameter) parts with high numerical apertures up to parts of 200mm in diameter with 20mm of sag. This allows the instrument to measure optics used in a range of applications, including Blu-ray DVD optics, cell-phone and digital camera lenses, IR imaging optics, laser diode / LED collimation optics and fiber-optic coupling components.

The new Talysurf PGI Optics 3D profiler is the ideal instrument for a wide variety of precision-measurement applications. It offers all of the benefits associated with Taylor Hobson's industry-leading reputation for measurement accuracy and brings a new level of dynamic 3D aspheric metrology to both laboratory and production shop floor. Among the instruments benefits are ease of use and operating efficiency that make the PGI Optics 3D suitable for both the R & D lab and factory floor environments. Its use in manufacturing offers companies significant potential cost savings.

Its embedded software provides "one-click" calibration and execution of a sequence of measurements. The instrument includes the capability of complete aspheric analysis of the measurement results that enables the users to see the true form of the component without the need for any further measurement analysis. This new automated approach is a significant advancement in instrument automation.

The PGI Optics 3D profiler is ideal for 3D form measurement of shallow and steep sided moulds and lenses (up to 85 degrees). In addition to measurement of aspheric lenses up to 200mm, the instrument provides full support for the measurement of diffractive lenses. Diffractive analysis of the results is possible using the included, powerful Asphero-Diffractive Analysis software.

Taylor Hobson is an ultra-precision technology company operating at the highest levels of accuracy within the field of surface and form metrology, providing contact and non-contact measurement solutions for the most demanding industrial and research applications. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc, a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of more than $2.1 billion.
