For over 40 years, DWFritz has prided itself on being a world-class engineering service provider, leveraging our experienced team and using a consultative, collaborative approach to offer custom design/build as well as standardized machines. We will design and build engineered-to-order automation systems to meet your unique requirements and specifications.
Inspection & Metrology Systems
We are experts at creating a variety of test & inspection machines, including defect and surface flaw detection and dimensional metrology, all specified to maximize fast cycle time and high throughput. Our products and machines are capable of sub-micron accuracy and nanometer level repeatability, and meet challenging gage R&R standards. We develop robust systems that utilize different technologies: machine vision (custom software using different image processing techniques such as pixel counting, thresholding, segmentation, blob discovery, barcode recognition, template match, and edge detection), laser interferometers, confocal lasers, profilometers, and mechanical gauges to perform metrology functions. Areas of expertise include:
- 3D part metrology and sorting – inline and/or offline
- Wafer/MEMS metrology, profiling and inspection
- Flex circuit inspection
- Implant component inspection
- Packaging inspection
We automate high volume, high-speed final assembly needs, and specialize in smaller components or assemblies in areas such as industrial and consumer goods, medical devices, MEMS and other products. We have expertise in 3-axis, 4-axis, and 6-axis robots, including SCARA, flexpicker, wafer and industrial robots. Standard platform or serialized machines are available in specific applications.
