The high-end equipment includes a Nikon shadowgraph – an optical measuring device for inspecting angles and lengths – as well as a Keyence IM-7000 image dimension measuring system – a high-tech, computer software operated optimal imaging device, designed to measure angles, lengths, thread pitch measurements and ‘true roundness’.
