AMRC Benefits from Alicona Products
In this video, Brian Kyte discusses the background of Alicona UK and how the company’s track has changed from the laboratory setting to full-fledged production services. Tom McLeay, Head of Research at AMRC, provides details regarding why they have chosen Alicona to integrate into a manufacturing cell to provide in-process measurement capability.
This video shows how both Alicona and AMRC benefit from Alicona products. Alicona UK was formed 10 years ago with the company later venturing into the optical metrology side, and for the past eight years the company has been focusing on the productivity and manufacturing markets.
Alicona has now moved further into the automation market and AMRC purchased one of those systems to enable that to happen. G5 has the ability to measure things that are almost impossible to measure by other methods. For instance, it can measure surface finish that cannot be done on a CMM. It can measure all surfaces but typically it cannot measure transparent products. Alicona UK is pushing more of its products into the manufacturing sector in the future. Alicona is looking forward to work more with AMRC, who plans to use the Alicona Measurement Sensor in the Automated Cell Test. This sensor allows ARMC to increase the number of tests and efficiency of the cell, and fully automate the testing.
