Optical comparators are an incredibly useful tool in quality and inspection laboratories. They have been a part of the quality process in many operations for decades due to their ease of use, and ability to quickly take 2D measurements on a variety of parts.
While the general function of an optical comparator hasn’t deviated from it’s origin, the technology involved in capturing measurements has greatly evolved. New systems use LED lighting for better visuals, automated stages allow quicker motion, and introduction of powerful software allows us to get a large amount of accurate data points at incredible speed.
With options for so many new and improved features, there are a variety of products available to improve your process. J.A. King offers optical comparators from industry-leading brands such as QVI.
