Case Study of an Äpre Upgrade for Optikos
Optikos (a Massachusetts-based company) provides engineering and manufacturing services for optically-based product development; designs and manufactures standard and custom metrology products for measuring lenses, camera systems and ophthalmic components; and offers in-house IQ Lab™ optical testing and qualification services.
In the words of Hillary Balonek, IQ Lab™ Manager at Optikos:
“As optical engineering consultants, we must be ready for any problem – no matter how unique the application. For metrology equipment this is a challenge. Buying new optical testing equipment for each application is just not feasible. Recently we need another interferometer. We decided to upgrade a previously retired interferometer with Äpre. The speed and quality of Äpre’s work enabled us to get another system up and running for a reasonable cost.”
“I found the analysis tree to be the most valuable feature of the REVEAL software. It gives the user visibility into the many layers of data processing that occur when making a measurement.”
