Test & Measurement

Solutions for optical quality control

Test & Measurement refers to all industrial applications in which microscopic structures have to be displayed and analysed. 

Here are some examples where the imaging modules are used:

- Semiconductor technology, SMD inspection, solder joint analysis

- Automotive, quality control, process control, cylinder inspection

- Metallography (hardness testing, crimp analysis, weld seam control) 

- Energy, solar wafer inspection

Optical measurement of mesh widths with the compact ‘Profile Projector’

In contrast to mechanical test methods using test sand or glass balls, optical measurement of the mesh dimensions is a fast and reliable measurement method and ideal for inline control of production results in an industry 4.0 environment.

Wafer screening with a digital microscope compact M

A compact M digital microscope from the Imaging Module family is ideal for analysing reflective wafer surfaces and displaying the smallest structures. 

The following features are unique to a single vision sensor:

  • Integrated coaxial brightfield illumination
  • Compact and robust design 
  • Quick change between different modules
  • Apochromatic corrected microscope optics with long working distance
  • 5MP IMX Sony image sensor
  • Open software architecture with own SDK

In the picture on the right you can see two IM from the IC10-05 series (copy number and find the corresponding data sheet in the Productfinder)


The Analysis of welding results is a typical challenge of Metallography labs.

The Machine Vision Microscope with Coaxial Light and with Ring Light is perfect for Micro weld inspection.

One Plug and play Digital Microscope. No change of Equipment.

- Magnification: 3,75x,

- FoV: 2,2x1,8mmWD 36mm

- 5MP Sony IMX264 monochrome

- USB 3.1, 0.9 µm/Pixel

With the free OptoViewer it is also possible to execute pre calibrated measurements easily.

Hardness Testing (Vickers & Brinell)

Hardness Testing

Micro Hardness Testing needs high end optical microscopy images.
Opto is delivering since years Imaging Modules in existing Machinery.

solino can principally disrupt this business because:

- with solino we can detect micro indents on a big surface, by analyzing the reflections

- It is possible to identify the position of a μm size Indent, on big area with a standard camera

- solino analyses anomalies and offers reliable info about an indent of the object surface

- This makes the vision setup independent from the object surface or ambient light conditions
