High quality glass tubing production requires tightly controlled manufacturing processes. OptiGauge® II, Lumetrics' low coherence interferometer, can aid the control of the straightness of the tube by measuring its bow when Reference Signal Generator (RSG) is added.
When paired with custom software and a precision rotation adjustment stage, OptiGauge II can characterize a tube during both the incoming material inspection and outgoing product quality control in the following:
- Wall thickness
- Inner diameter (ID)
- Outer diameter (OD)
Our free app note details the flexibility and robustness of the OptiGauge II for this application.
