    Naomi Shisaike with Canon kicked off our Photonics West 2018 coverage by giving us a rundown of what they were featuring at their booth. Watch the video to learn more about their new surface reflectance anaylyzer.

  6. RA-532H Surface Reflectance Analyzer Video Introduction
    6/28/2017

    The new RA-532H Surface Reflectance Analyzer from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components is capable of surface measurements at three different angles (20°, 60°, and 85°). Utilized measurement methods include standard compliant gloss, haze, Image Clarity (IC), and 1-D and 2-D BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function) measurements. The analyzer can be used for a variety of evaluation and inspection applications with many types of surfaces such as film, paper, and automotive, printed, or painted surfaces.

  7. 3D Machine Vision System RV1100 Video Introduction
    6/16/2017

    The RV1100 is a 3D machine vision system designed to measure and recognize randomly assembled production line parts with complex shapes and very few distinguishing features for robotic arm systems. It offers the benefits of one-time measurements of 3D pose, high-speed recognition, improved productivity, and reduced production costs. The RV1100 is ideal for use in industrial production applications such as automobile parts manufacturing, car manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing.

  8. Video – Piezo Nano Positioning Stage For Microscopy: P-563 PIMars XYZ-Stage
    5/25/2017

    Piezo nanopositioning stages offer high-resolution and scanning speed, making them useful for super-resolution microscopy and optical trapping. The P-563 PIMars XYZ-Stages are designed with a parallel-kinematics arrangement with higher precision and responsiveness compared to nested or stacked multi-axis positioners.
