Phoenix Imaging offers

ShaPix 3-D Surface Analysis System

Phoenix Imaging now represents the latest technology in

Digital Holographic High-Definition Defect Detection & Metrology Systems

ShaPix technology is used to precisely measure the surface topology (depth (z-axis) measurements) on flat structures.  The primary use is to determine flatness over large area such as the deck face on engine blocks, heads, transmission plates, engine components where seal integrity is critical.

Imagine using millions of laser micrometers to examine a surface and then map the information so that it can be interrupted visually.  The use of millions of laser micrometers would not only be cost prohibitive but impractical to implement.  The ShaPix technology provides a feasible alternative to very slow contact methodologies with better accuracy.  This exciting new technology has required millions of dollars of investment and many man-year's of development to complete.  This is not an inexpensive vision solution with basic solution costing >$250K.

However, the result is impressive and it provides insight into industrial applications that have not been possible to date.  Contact us and we will be happy to discuss the potential of your application.  For additional information see the following link ShaPix Specifications.

The baseline ShaPix Surface Analysis System includes two major units, the sensor head unit and the electronics unit.  A variety of sensor head bases and peripheral options are also available.  The Baseline systems include high-definition surface global and zone flatness and waviness surface metrology functions as well as multi-view surface stitching.  Lateral defect detection and measurement accuracy is specified for the specific ShaPix Surface Analysis System that is ordered (request specifications tables).  The complexity of the inspection system requires that all desired defect detection and measurement functionality must be ordered at the time of the original system order and can not be field retrofit.  Phoenix Imaging is your ShaPix Surface Analysis System representative for applications involved in Aerospace, Automotive, and Fuel Cell Technologies.

Note: Micron-level defect detection and metrology using any methods or devices whatsoever must take into account the various static and dynamic physical effects which inherently affect the actual dimensions and observability of the parts and assemblies that are to be processed.  These include vibration, shock and differential thermal effects.
