Imaging optics

Navitar, a manufacturer of high-precision optical assemblies, has released four new fixed focal length imaging optics designed for shortwave infrared cameras and applications.

The lenses, which include two 25 mm designs, a 35 mm design and a 50 mm design, can cover 16 mm diagonal sensors. They offer high-resolution images and transmission of 75% or better in the 700 to 1,900 nm wavelength.

X-ray spectrometry analysis package

A new x-ray fluorescence spectrometry analysis package has been introduced by Thermo Scientific.

The UniQuant XRF analysis package is part of Thermo Scientific's ARL QUANT'X system, a complete energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence system designed to facilitate rapid and precise qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis.

The UniQuant package works with the ARL QUANT'X system to achieve fast and accurate analysis of major, minor and trace elements in a variety of materials, including solids, powders, liquids and layered structures. It achieves measurement times of 10 to 20 seconds per element.

ARL QUANT'X with UniQuant can be precalibrated and ready to operate out-of-the-box with minimal operator training.

LED fiberoptic probe

Titan Tool Supply has unveiled a new portable LED fiberoptic probe to illuminate hard-to-reach areas.

The illuminator handle is made of stainless steel and has a push-button on/off switch. The probe, which is powered by three AAA batteries, features a 1.25-watt LED illuminator with a focusing lens. The LED is designed to last for more than 10,000 hours.

Probe extensions come in angles of 180°, 90° and 45° and diameters of 0.120 in., 0.058 in. and 0.030 in. Each probe extension slips on and snaps into place over the light source on the illuminator handle.

Metrology software

Origin International, a provider of dimensional metrology software and services, has released software that analyzes dimensional data from samples from the first iteration of a stamping process.

LaunchRite, a computer-aided design-based metrology application, eliminates the need for trial-and-error tooling and avoids the need for containment, sorting and scrap. This results in a significant shortening of the launch cycle and delivers robust tooling that produces acceptable parts after the first iteration.

Management dashboards

George S. May International, a provider of enterprise dashboard software, has introduced new software for small and mid-sized manufacturers. Management Dashboards software can be customized for virtually any type of manufacturing operation.

The software can track and display various types of key performance indicators (KPIs) such as work-in-progress status, production schedules, incoming orders, shipping status and production backlog. It converts numerical data into visual format, using tables, graphs and performance dials to illustrate KPIs.

Wireless temperature monitoring application

A new wireless temperature monitoring application for the healthcare industry has been released. AeroScout's Temperature Monitoring application, part of its Healthcare Visibility Suite, uses Wi-Fi radiofrequency identification tags with integrated temperature sensors to track temperature data from refrigerators and freezers that contain critical items such as vaccines, pharmaceuticals, organs, tissues and blood.

The tags send temperature readings over a standard Wi-Fi network to a software module, which issues an alert to staff in the event of temperature fluctuation. The software module stores temperature logs, alerts and corrective actions and generates reports for the analysis of temperature trends and deviation.

Ultrasonic flow transmitters

Clark Solutions has introduced a new ultrasonic flow transmitter to measure flow rates of acoustically conductive liquids. ClarkSonic UltraSonic Flow Transmitters can be used to measure flow of most clean liquids and many liquids with entrained solids.

ClarkSonic Model CSLFC is designed for flows to 400 gal. per minute (GPM) in 3/4 to 3 in. pipe, and ClarkSonic Model CSLFB is designed for flows to 3,000 GPM in 4 to 10 in. pipe. The transmitters require no calibration of fluid temperature, viscosity or density, resulting in easy deployment and high reliability.

Universal gear tester

A manufacturer of dimensional metrology products has released a new Class 1 universal gear tester. The GMX 400, part of Mahr Federal's GMX series, provides fast, accurate analysis for a wide range of gear and gear tool applications on gears with outside diameters up to 400 mm.

It features a four-axis power PC controller with automatic tailstock and a high-accuracy 3-D scanning probe head.

The GMX 400 is equipped for standalone shop floor and gear lab applications, and it can also be fully networked for fast and efficient transfer of measuring results and machine corrections.
