LASER 2017: Mahr metrology for the optics industry

2017-08-11 | Company | Reilly, Karin

Record attendance and enlarged exhibition space

As a reliable and innovative partner for metrology, Mahr presented its tailor-made product portfolio and applications for precision optics.

On the enlarged stand, interested visitors were impressed by hand-held metrology, measuring microscopes, white light and Fizeau interferometers, contour and form testers as well as the innovative Tilted Wave Interferometer MarOpto TWI 60. This is the only single product worldwide to measure the full surface of aspheres and without accessories in a few seconds. High measuring speed, automatic alignment of the test pieces: MarOpto TWI 60 thus fulfills important conditions of the Industry 4.0 in the field of photonics.

Particular attention was also paid to the combined optical-tactile testing of molds. While the aspherical surface is measured without contact, the upper and lateral edges are subjected to the same clamping. The high-precision measuring instrument MarFom MFU 200 Aspheric 3D not only detects the form deviation of the asphere, but also the offset, the run-out and the tilting error. The high flexibility of this measuring system also allows the testing of freeforms.

The entire trade fair team would like to thank all visitors for the constructive discussions, the important suggestions and the positive feedback. These are important impulses for the further successful orientation as a metrology manufacturer for the optical industry.
