Microscopy specialist Peak Metrology expands software portfolio

Higher level of automation with software solution from IDC Microinspection

16.12.2021 - Peak Metrology, solution provider for the surface metrology sector, is now cooperating with IDC Microinspection. The partnership combines Peak Metrology's instrument and hardware capabilities with IDC MicroInspection's process knowledge and application software. As a result, users of digital microscopes benefit from new possibilities such as larger measurement volumes and greater automation in image acquisition.

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.

Peak Metrology and IDC - Digital Microscopy and Software

Led by Hardt, a longtime Aerotech engineer, Peak Metrology draws on Aerotech's expertise in positioning systems, but focuses exclusively on helping industrial customers with surface metrology solutions through to complete integration.

Swiss-based IDC Microinspection specializes in automated microscopy, optical inspection, software development and precision engineering.
