Microscopy specialist Peak Metrology expands software portfolio
Higher level of automation with software solution from IDC Microinspection
The collaboration between Peak Metrology, a subsidiary of Aerotech formed in late summer 2021, and IDC Microinspection, provides reliable positioning machines with scan automation software for seamless integration of Keyence VHX digital microscopes, in addition to larger measurement volumes and increased automation.
"The market for digital microscopes is booming. However, in areas such as semiconductor manufacturing, precision manufacturing, electronics, aerospace and medical, they are quickly reaching their limits," points out RJ Hardt, president at Peak Metrology. "We want to provide our customers with the best possible support for measuring larger parts - that's one of our top business goals. By partnering with IDC, we are able to deliver a fully integrated product."
"Through our proven software interface, on the one hand we can replicate functions of digital microscopes, but on the other hand we can add useful functions that did not exist before," said Thorleif Brandsberg, Managing Director at IDC Microinspection.
