“...Critically, this analysis includes all defined criteria stated within these two standards, including the illusive accumulation rules governing lower-tier imperfections. It was a pleasure working with the metrology experts at RedLux, testing our full range of sample materials and ensuring all our functionality needs were met.”
The OptiLux SD has continued to easily address the requirements of Crystran’s diverse range of products, accurately measuring parts individually or in batches before certifying them against the appropriate standard. But beyond just an improvement in quality control, the system has produced measurable productivity benefits.
“When we first implemented the system roughly half of everything we made was to a 40-20 SD spec or better. Given the resultant reduction of re-works the OptiLux SD provided, our estimated annual saving was roughly £50,000. Over recent years we have seen a tightening of tolerances towards the 20-10 and 10-5 requirement, making us even more reliant on the OptiLux SD and saving our production and inspection departments even more time and therefore money.”
On top of this, the OptiLux SD has enabled Crystran to:
Reduce the number of surface quality queries they receive. The solution gives customers confidence in their ability to deliver a quality product every time.
Upskill their staff. They are now able to instantly recognise whether a part meets the specification, which has increased production capacity elsewhere.
OptiLux SD’s patented inspection technology gives you unparalleled confidence in your inspection process. Complete with multiple inspection modes, the system is simple to use - designed to minimise loading time and reduce component handling, allowing for seamless integration into existing manufacturing processes.
