Metrology

Navitar has been supplying imaging lenses to metrology customers for over 20 years. Our Zoom 6000 and 12X Zoom high magnification systems are ideal for on-process and post-process measurement applications. They easily move through the range of travel with little-to-no distortion or loss of focus. They offer the high contrast levels required to produce sharp black white edges allowing for highly accurate, precise images. 

Navitar lenses are used worldwide in non-contact vision based systems to measure and inspect surface form, waviness and roughness on sheet metal parts, automotive interior parts, turbine blades, medical devices, tools, and anything too large to fit within the frame of a CMM.
