Aerotech's newest subsidiary, Peak Metrology, continues to grow stronger. This surface metrology solutions provider has announced a partnership with IDC MicroInspection. This partnership combines Peak Metrology's instruments and hardware capabilities with IDC MicroInspection's process know-how and application software. Users of digital microscopes will benefit from increased capabilities such as larger measurement volumes and improved automation of image acquisition. Finally, reliable positioning machines with scanning automation software are now available for seamless integration with Keyence VHX digital microscopes.
Led by RJ Hardt, a long-time Aerotech engineer, Peak Metrology leverages Aerotech's extensive expertise in positioning systems, but focuses exclusively on supporting industrial customers with surface metrology solutions up to full integration.
"The market for digital microscopes is booming. However, in areas such as semiconductor manufacturing, precision manufacturing,electronics, aerospace or medical technology, they are quickly reaching their limits, says RJ Hardt, president of Peak Metrology. We want to help our customers measure larger parts in the best possible way – this is one of the main goals of our company. By partnering with IDC, we are able to provide a fully integrated product. The know-how and operator software of our partner IDC allow a successful solution. »
Strong expertise on both sides
Peak Metrology develops and manufactures standard and special equipment for surface and precision measurement processes. For surface metrology applications, Peak Metrology offers a wide range of products up to turnkey machines.
With 25 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, microelectronics, as well as medical technology, the Swiss company IDC specializes in the fields of automated microscopy, optical inspection, software development and precision mechanics.
"With our proven software interface, we can replicate the functions of digital microscopes, but also add useful functions that didn't exist before," said Thorleif Brandsberg, Managing Director of IDC MicroInspection. By partnering our products with a reputable equipment manufacturer, we will help even more users solve their precision inspection problems in the future. »
