Non-Contact International The makers of the remarkable instrument CentriScan.

If you need to gauge transparent or mildly translucent products such as glass or plastic tubing/pipes, vials and ampules, preforms for blow molding plastic bottles, or medical tubing, you really have to look into CentriScan. What kind of gauging?

  • Outer surface shape
  • Wall thickness
  • Concentricity of inner and outer surfaces

Accuracy is 0.0025mm regardless of "wedging" between the inner and outer walls or lack of concentricity. The optics and system technology doesn't correct for these errors, it eliminates them!

Industrial Eye  Brian King and his team really know how to do machine vision right!
