One of a kind measuring technology

FocalSpec’s Line Confocal Imaging (LCI) is a unique and globally patented measuring technology. LCI technology enables 2D and 3D measurement of various stationary and moving surfaces at a very high resolution. The LCI sensors use a measurement profile line with 2048 pixels, i.e. 2048 3D raw measurement data points are recorded simultaneously. LCI sensors can be used for example to measure roughness, thickness, step height, diameter, positioning, flatness, profile, gap and clearance or burr height. LCI is the only technology that can measure burr height and cable roughness on-line.

LightningChart is easy to use & fast

Masa Mäkäräinen, Head of Software Development in FocalSpec Ltd, has a clear opinion on why they decided to choose LightningChart:

“Component is easy to use, fast and contains great examples to start graph integration.”

He also appreciates the vast configurability of LightningChart. He sees the graph as easy to start with default attributes, but it also contains possibility to change virtually all significant elements. When asked what actual benefits FocalSpec has achieved by using LightningChart, Mr. Mäkäräinen describes that the core benefit was that they were able to speed up the process of getting product from development to market.
