Taylor Hobson introduces automatic prism and polygon checker

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Taylor Hobson will unveil the latest addition to its line of industry-leading optical metrology products this month, with the launch of its automatic prism/polygon measurement system at the forthcoming Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco.

The Taylor Hobson automatic prism/polygon measurement system offers high stability angle measurement and testing of optical prisms, polygons, wedges and angle gauges from as little as 2mm² in size. A combination of high precision hardware and dedicated software ensure polygon measurement to better than 1 second.

The prism checker uses the Taylor Hobson two axis digital Ultra autocollimator, respected throughout industry for its high accuracy and stability over a wide measurement range (1800 seconds).  This is combined with a highly stable rotary stage which gives precision positioning and movement to less than 1 second.

Dedicated software allows programmes to be written, saved and recalled using a simple step-by-step process and the results produced in a detailed report format.

Our technical applications engineers will be on hand at the Photonics West show to demonstrate the accuracy of versatility of this new system.
