- State-of-the-Art, High Accuracy, Microtrak Pro-2D to Fulfill Market Demand and Complement MTII’s Already Successful Line of 1D Lasers
ALBANY, N.Y.– MTI Instruments, Inc. (MTII) of Albany, NY, a worldwide leader in precision measurement solutions, and a subsidiary of Mechanical Technology Incorporated (MTI) (OTC: MKTY), announced today the launch of its new Microtrak PRO-2D laser triangulation scanners which provide high speed profile, displacement and dimensional information in real time.
Unlike some competitor’s products, the Microtrak PRO-2D is unaffected by surface texture, color or stray light, and is ideal for solving tough production and quality control applications throughout a wide variety of industries. For example, the Microtrak PRO-2D can be used in manufacturing applications like welding, and glue dispersion as well as demanding robotic and motion control applications. Laser head electronics have been specially designed to protect against high shock and vibration. Additionally, by using multiple heads, customers have the ability to expand the system measurement capabilities and perform 3-D analysis.
“As technology advances are made in manufacturing, process and quality control, customers encounter more and more critical measurement applications that can only be solved with non-contact 2D and 3D technology; we believe our Microtrak PRO-2D fulfills many of these application requirements,” said Peng Lim, CEO of MTI Instruments. “The Microtrak PRO-2D is part of our strategy of providing technically superior products that solve critical customer demands and is an innovative product that will help us gain access to new applications and customers.”
The Microtrak PRO-2D uses the triangulation principle to obtain a two dimensional height profile of target surfaces.
