A few years ago, we were approached by one customer that needed to use a non-Windows based system. A customer had never made a request like this before, so there were no Lumetrics products available to meet this need. To redevelop all of the existing Lumetrics software for different operating systems would have been time and cost prohibitive. Instead of turning away the customer, several Lumetrics engineers were able to think of a solution that would not take a lot of development time.
August 15, 2016, Rochester, NY: Lumetrics Inc., the leading manufacturer of precision measurement solution equipment known for offering precision thickness and wavefront measurement instrumentation, is proud to announce the launch of its highly anticipated Web Store. Lumetrics’ Web Store allows customers to easily order probes, fixtures, software, and other accessories in the U.S. (please note that web store shipments are… Read more »
Metal stents have been available since 1988. Through the 1990’s, stents went through numerous iterations, incorporating different metals and coatings. As the medical products industry moved through the 2000’s, the use of bioresorbable stents became the newest innovation. And, it is a tremendous innovation. Through the use of bioresorbable stents, physicians are able to reduce… Read more »
50 Ways Light-based Technologies Enrich Our World- a book published by SPIE in honor of the International Year of Light #iyl2015
One of our rock-star engineers, Clark, sent me this video today because he thought it was really interesting- it shows how fiber optics are made. I’d have to agree that it is a pretty fascinating video. This video was featured on the Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made” television series in an episode about fiber optics. In… Read more »
