The TECHSPEC Multi-Element Tube System released by Edmund Optics combines outer tubes with M29 threads, inner single and pair optic mounts also with M29 threads, and a selection of mix-and-match components to allow for highly adjustable optics designs and to aid with prototyping.
Chromasens is releasing bright field and dark field coaxial modules for its CORONA II LED line scan illumination line, designed to accommodate inspection of highly reflective surfaces. The new modules come in lengths up to 680 mm, feature anti-reflective coating, ultra-thin diffuser glass to reduce or eliminate ghost images, and beam-splitters to diffuse light and eliminate shadows.
Edmund Optics will show its TECHSPEC Zinc Selenide Aspheric Lenses at SPIE DCS 2019. The lenses are manufactured from II-VI Infrared ZnSe material and are available uncoated or with a broadband anti-reflection coating for transmission from 8 - 12 µm. According to the manufacturer, the lenses are appropriate for integration into laser systems, thermal imaging assemblies, and FTIR devices.
Metaphase Technologies has announced six product demos to be held at Automate 2019. The products to be demonstrated include the UL line light, ISO lights, SWIR UL line light, Barcode light, exo2 light, and 360 co-axial light, in demonstrations of line scanning, hyperspectral imaging, polarization, and other applications.
Kowa will show its new HC-V series lenses at Automate 2019. The HC-V series is based on Kowa's standard 1' HC lenses, ruggedized for high vibration and high shock environments, and designed for MPixel applications requiring a sensor size of 1' or smaller.
Laser Components USA will show four laser module products at Automate 2019, the ALBALUX FM, FLEXPOINT MVsquare, FLEXPOINT ILM12IP, and FLEXPOINT MVstereo.
