Mahr Inc.’s MarOpto MT 100 is part of a series of Fizeau interferometer towers for measuring optics directly in production. The interferometers are supported by Intelliwave software to allow measurement of both radius and form deviations as a measurement wizard guides the user through the steps to complete the measurement, the company says.

The interferometers can be used with precision optics production up to 4” diameter. According to the company, spheres and flats can be measured with lambda/20 accuracy and the Z axis covers 800 mm at a resolution of 0.5 µm for precision determination of the radius in the optic under test.

    The variety of probe applications on machine tools, CMMs, comparative gages and portable arms makes correct selection of styli usage essential for efficient, reliable and accurate measurement. Here are some key points that can be helpful in choosing the best measurement solution.

  • Faster Measurement Of Complex Parts

    As workpieces become more and more complex, with numerous critical dimensions that must be correct because they often relate to other features of the part, many of the tried-and-true measurement tools can slow down the production process.
