High Speed Optical Micrometer from Keyence
Highly accurate optical micrometer.
Itasca, IL — Keyence's LS-9000 series for high speed and high precision diameter inspection, provides a standard sampling rate of 16,000Hz. The system is designed to keep up with any production line while maintaining an extraordinary repeatability of 1.2 millionths of an inch (0.03µm). In addition, the system had been designed from the ground up for durability and ease of use and incorporates several features to both simplify setup and reduce cost of ownership.

With a newly designed LED system and HS-CMOS, the LS-9000 eliminates errors that were previously endemic to optical micrometers. Not only can the system keep up with today's high throughput production, the enhanced sampling rate virtually eliminates the effects of target vibration on the measurement value. With the next-generation enhancements to the optics, the system performance level allows it to monitor even the tightest production tolerances.

The LS-9000 series incorporates no moving parts in its design. This not only almost completely eliminates the wear and tear common to traditional systems, it also allows the system to be far more resistant to common production floor mishaps. Incorporating a custom designed vibration isolation system within the head, the LS-9000 is able to resist damage from vibration and impact.
