Webinars - 2016


Look Inside Complex Parts with Industrial Computed Tomography (Nov 22, 2016)

Nikon Metrology industrial X-ray and computed tomography (CT) inspection systems gather internal and external dimensions with micron-level detail. Learn how these non-destructive inspection solutions can help refine your prototyping and manufacturing capabilities.


Medical Device Inspection Solutions: 101 (Nov 15, 2016)

As the Metrology industry continues to expand companies are finding themselves with a surplus of inspection solutions from stereo and compound microscopes, industrial confocal microscopy to benchtop SEM imaging devices. Each of these products has their strengths and weaknesses, making it difficult to decide which inspection solution will provide you with the competitive edge you have been searching for.

This webinar will provide you with an overview of the latest metrology techniques that are being used by medical device companies around the globe. We will then compare the advantages and disadvantages to each method, providing you with the knowledge you need to make the right decision for your application. This exclusive webinar as we explore the countless imaging techniques used to optically inspect medical devices in today's demanding market.


Explore the “Smaller World” with the new JCM-6000 Plus SEM (Nov 15, 2016)

The new benchtop scanning electron microscope, JCM-6000Plus NeoScope™, is designed to fulfill the diversifying needs of customers. The JCM-6000Plus is the third generation of the popular NeoScope benchtop SEM designed for convenience and ease of use. Nikon and JEOL have established a firm partnership in 2008 and this combination of experience and technology helps customers to obtain better insight in their products and finally increasing the daily productivity.


Insight into the inside with microfocus computed tomography (Oct 27, 2016)

In this webinar, we look at solutions provided by microfocus computed tomography (CT) such as: non-destructive inspection, full 3D internal and external visualisation, micron accuracy and structural integrity.



Laser Radar: Next Generation CMM (Oct 4, 2016)

The Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar system has become a proven solution for customers looking to upgrade from the traditional well known CMM. Companies are rethinking the speed and accuracy of their current large-scale inline inspection processes. The completely automatable Laser Radar system is a non-contact measuring device with up to a 50 meter range and accuracies similar to a horizontal arm CMM. Parts can be measured in the same location where they are manufactured shortening the trouble shooting process and saving both time and money.


Introduction of New High Accuracy, High Speed Non-Contact 3D Gear Measuring System: HN-C3030 (Aug 18, 2016)

Gears are typically measured with contact scanning probes on either a dedicated gear measurement machine or on a 4-axis Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM).

Until now! Nikon metrology has recently released the HN-C3030. A 5-axis, laser scanning, gear measurement machine. The HN-C3030 allows full measurement of teeth at much higher speeds than traditional gear measurement machines whilst retaining high levels accuracy. This full tooth measurement shows additional defects on the teeth, like cutter marks, that cannot be detected by contact probes and can lead to vibration, excess noise and wear.


Laser Radar: next-generation CMM for shop floor automotive BIW inspection (Apr 13, 2016)

Innovative inspection stations are being installed today, both lineside and offline, by major automotive OEMs using Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar.

In this recorded webinar, we explain how the non-contact, automated Laser Radar is providing OEMs with an effective alternative to the shortcomings of CMMs and fixed inline camera systems for body-in white (BIW) and flush-and-gap inspections.

We outline the key features of Laser Radar, its ability to inspect almost any material, colour or surface texture and how it easily interfaces with most common industrial robots.

As OEMs continue to push the limits of automotive design with new shapes, materials and processes, Laser Radar meets the challenge with a high-speed solution, robust enough to be deployed directly on the factory floor.


Micro Computed Tomography inspects structural integrity of AM parts (Apr 6, 2016)

Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) is frequently used today to produce automotive or aerospace components that require 100% failure-free operation.

Complex product designs use minimum amounts of material to lower component weights without sacrificing on structural integrity. AM also allows us to produce parts with complex internal structures (e.g. cooling channels) that are impossible to inspect with standard surface measurement techniques. Due to the expensive nature of these AM parts, traditional destructive inspection (e.g by slicing) is not an option for manufacturers.


Industrial micro-CT: From the research lab to the production line (Feb 17, 2016)

Typically X-ray micro computed tomography (CT) has been seen as a slow process carried out in the research lab to evaluate failures or spot defects. It has never been fast enough to be used on a production line – that is until now! Recent advances in high-resolution high-flux rotating targets for X-ray sources, coupled with easy automation of CT scanning parameters and analysis techniques allow samples to be scanned, reconstructed and evaluated in under two minutes, opening many new CT applications.
