IMI, Inc. announced today that they have acquired and installed a Micro-Vu Excel 661 UCL Measuring System.  This sophisticated machine will complement IMI’s current Micro-Vu inspection system and overall inspection, test and measurement capability. 

The Excel 661 UCL Measuring System has a programmable zoom lens and “Mono Rail” bearing design.  This powerful vision system boasts a 42 channel lighting system.  It makes measurements very fast and very accurate, especially in the Z-axis, and provides complete data reporting for individual jobs or comparison to parts produced on previous job runs. 

Peter Bigelow, President & CEO commented, “The addition of this state-of-the art Micro-Vu system will allow us to continue to make and inspect complex substrates and circuit boards faster, and with greater attention to the ever increasing verification and validation requirements our world-class customers are expecting while providing our internal team with much more data so we can refine and improve materials and process trends.” 

The Micro-Vu 5661 UCL is networkable to IMI’s quality systems and will feed results into several databases and forms.  All of which will streamline the quality assurance function and provide critical data to IMI’s customers, as well as  engineering and process refinement efforts.
