Torr Scientific has recently invested in a new shadowgraph profile projector for the factory.
It will be used by our inspectors to check a wide variety of parts quickly and accurately, saving time and improving productivity.
The shadowgraph works like this: A beam of parallel light, produced by a lamp along with a system of condensers, lenses and mirrors is used to create and project a shadow of the test piece onto a built in projection screen. The optical system magnifies the profile of the small part, making it easy to do measurements. The process is non-contact so is suitable for delicate parts.
