Planar Inspection Machine

Our Quality Assurance department’s Planar inspection machine is the world’s fastest two dimensional measurement system!

In less than 0.1 of a second, Planar can measure millions of points.  These measurements are then overlaid on the parts DXF/DWG file to generate a deviation map and full set of inspection reports in less than 20 seconds!


The Planar system has no moving parts to recalibrate or wear out and therefore, offers consistent accuracy and high reliability.  A single very high resolution camera, which scans parts placed on a backlit glass surface, is used to acquire millions of measurements across the entire table in a fraction of a second.

The Planar can be used for inspection and reverse engineering of flat opaque and semi-transparent parts from a wide variety of materials such as metals, rubber, polymers, cloth, wood, cork, cardboard, paper, carbon/glass fiber reinforced plastics and more.

Materials measured may have been punched, laser, plasma, water jet or knife cut or even hand cut. The systems can measure multiple parts simultaneously and can also measure o-rings with a single click of a button.

The Planar Inspection systems has proved to be a great addition to our QA inspection lab and will be in service for many more years to come.
