Video Measuring Systems
VIEW Micro-Metrology offers a full line of optical metrology systems for wafer, photomask, slider, MEMS, semiconductor package, HDD suspension, probe card, and micro-component process measurements.
The new Spark benchtop video dimensional measuring system provides the advanced programming capabilities of VIEW Micro-Metrology Software with a high resolution optical system and 5 mega-pixel camera for high accuracy measurements on small and medium format parts.
The Spark offers 4 measuring ranges to accommodate any part size:
The Pinnacle 250 offers the highest accuracy and fastest speeds of the VIEW Micro-Metrology line. Its high performance and compact footprint make it VIEW Micro-Metrology’s most popular model.
The Pinnacle features a damped granite base and column, with passive vibration isolation. A precision compound X-Y stage with high-speed linear motor drives provides velocity of 400 mm/sec and acceleration of 1000 mm/sec².
This combination of high acceleration and high velocity enables the high throughput required for near-line process monitoring. The rugged and compact design of the Pinnacle lends itself to installation in either a QA lab or at an inspection station in the manufacturing line.
The Pinnacle is ideal for measurement of small, close tolerance parts, particularly parts with a high density of features, such as hard disk drive suspensions, printer heads, precision stampings, leadframes, ball-grid arrays, and chip scale packages.
The Pinnacle can be equipped with an optional through-the-lens or offset mounted laser for added flexibility in Z-axis measurements. Pinnacle models can also utilize the optional SpectraProbe™ offering sub-micron Z-axis measurement resolution.
The Pinnacle operates with one or more of VIEW Micro-Metrology’s standard metrology software packages:
VIEW Metrology Software (VMS™) which offers a wide array of standard measurement tools as well as a built-in scripting language to enable custom-functions.
Elements® CAD-to-Measure software provides automatic translation of 2-D CAD files in measurement programs, enabling very fast set-up of measurement routines for even the most complex parts.
The Benchmark 250 is a compact general-purpose metrology system with all the features and capabilities of the larger VIEW Micro-Metrology models.
With travel of 300 x 150 x 150 mm, the Benchmark can accommodate a wide range of part sizes, and is rugged enough to be located in either a QA lab or an inspection station on the production floor.
The Benchmark 250 includes a precision compound X-Y stage, and VIEW Micro-Metrology’s exclusive dual magnification optics. An optional laser sensor adds unparalleled Z-axis measurement capability to this compact system.
The Benchmark 250 is well suited to measure many types of components, including molded plastic parts, machined parts, electronic assemblies, semiconductor packages, fiber optic components, disk media substrates, recording head die, or semiconductor wafers up to 150 mm in diameter.

The Benchmark 450 combines mid-range travel, high accuracy and a rugged, compact design in one value package that is ideally suited for the production floor.
The Benchmark’s fixed bridge design separates the X and Y axis motions, allowing each to operate without any influence on the other. This arrangement provides the maximum mechanical integrity and accuracy in the stage motion.
The bridge type design also makes loading and unloading of large parts more efficient, and helps to minimize the overall footprint of the system. The Benchmark is extremely compact, with a total footprint of less than 20 square feet.
Dual magnification optics and an optional through-the-lens (TTL) laser sensor make the Benchmark an ideal system for many applications including molded plastic parts, screen printer stencils, printed circuit boards, solder paste, epoxy glue dots, precision machined parts, and many others.
The Benchmark 450 operates with any of VIEW Micro-Metrology’s standard metrology software packages.
The Summit 450/600/800 systems provide high accuracy in a large measurement envelope. Summit systems feature a granite base and fixed bridge design – a well-proven design for high accuracy, larger travel measurement systems.
Summit 450 and 600 models are offered with a choice of either high-speed servo motor drives or linear motor drives. The Summit 800 uses a precision ball-screw and servo motor drive system.
All Summit models offer very high accuracy, while the linear motor models offer high speeds and improved motion control resulting in higher accuracy and throughput.
The Summit systems are ideal for measurement of large format parts requiring high accuracy, such as solder paste stencils and screens, artwork, panelized printed circuit boards, flex circuits, and micro-etched parts
