IMI, Inc. announced that they have acquired and installed a Keyence VHX-970 Digital Microscope with VH-ZST Zoom Lens. This sophisticated microscope system will complement IMI’s current inspection systems and further improve overall inspection, test and measurement capability.
The Keyence VHX-970 microscope has a zoom lens with a range of 20x to 2000x and the capability to transmit pictures or data of items being measured. This powerful vision system boasts a sophisticated lighting system that makes measurements fast and accurate, especially in the Z-axis, and provides complete data reporting for individual jobs or comparison to parts produced on previous job runs. The VHX-970 is fully 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
Peter Bigelow, President & CEO commented, “The addition of this state-of-the-art Keyence microscope system will allow us to continue to make and inspect more 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.”
