Overview

System Overview.

Labman integrated a spectrophotometer and LASER profilometer into a high throughput measurement system which was installed in the UK in 2008. The system measures the sample thickness using a LASER profilometer with resolution of 0.5um, which is moved over the surface using a raster scanning technique. After the sample thickness is measured the spectrophotometer is used to analyse the sample colour. Ideal measurement locations are identified using a digital camera with bespoke lighting and image analysis written by Labman. The system has capacity for 120 samples which are measured overnight and completed by the morning. After the process is complete the system’s software analyses all the data providing many forms of quantitative analysis of the sample.

“The newest model of TIDAS instruments is being put through rigorous evaluation and constant use. The upgrades to the software and automatic draw-down device have made this newest member of the TIDAS family an indispensable must have. The results obtained from the TIDAS instruments have made it easy to show our customers the reality of lab grind analysis without putting o a lab coat, for this we are grateful. Thanks to the Labman team for the great support and superb customer service. The transition from installation to full practice was a snap.”
