OptiPro Systems Receives 2024 Innovative System of the Year Award from FANUC America

Automated defect and feature metrology system enables new levels of quality and reduced rework for aerospace components further enabling aviation safety standards.

Ontario, NY – February 29, 2024 – OptiPro Systems, LLC, a FANUC Authorized Systems Integrator (ASI) and leading manufacturer and distributor of precision CNC machines and CAD/CAM software, has announced that they have been named winner of FANUC America’s 2024 Innovative System of the Year award for the 4Di InSpec automated metrology system (AMS). In partnership with 4D Technology, OptiPro developed the high-throughput, high resolution defect and feature inspection solution. A FANUC collaborative robot and custom metrology automation software developed by OptiPro enables the system to measure dozens of edge break features, chamfers, and radii in minutes rather than days. By implementing this solution, a manual operation that took multiple weeks to make 400 measurements was reduced to a matter of minutes.

“This award is a reflection of the incredible automation team we have at OptiPro,” said Rob Bechtold, President of OptiPro Systems. “As a FANUC Authorized Systems Integrator, OptiPro is dedicated to providing robotic automation solutions that help manufacturing companies achieve new levels of excellence. This robotic solution is a prime example of our ability to collaborate with manufacturers looking to automate processes that lead to more efficient production.”

The automated metrology system can be configured for multiple applications, including large, rotary applications, small freeform components such as turbine blades and multi-sensor applications. It is powered by OptiPro’s RoboQual™ custom metrology automation software. RoboQual™ bridges communication between the robot and the measuring device while adding an easy-to-use interface that compiles all measurement data files in one location. After identifying acceptable tolerances during job setup, RoboQual™ analyzes each measurement value and intuitively determines whether the measurement passes or fails. Users can also generate a report from RoboQual™ that contains all measurement data and pass/fail information. The solution is equipped with a FANUC CRX 10iA/L collaborative robot that is easier to program through custom software shortcuts developed by OptiPro’s automation team.

4Di InSpec Automated Metrology System

Onto Innovation’s 4Di InSpec™ Automated Metrology System Receives 2024 Innovative System of the Year Award from FANUC America

Automated defect and feature metrology system enables new levels of quality and reduced rework for aerospace components further enabling aviation safety standards

Wilmington, Mass., February 26, 2024 – Onto Innovation Inc. (NYSE: ONTO) and its Tucson subsidiary 4D Technology today announced they’ve been named winner of FANUC America’s prestigious 2024 Innovative System of the Year award for the 4Di InSpec automated metrology system (AMS). The system enables automated surface defect and feature metrology for aviation, aerospace and other applications in the industrial manufacturing market. The patented, vibration-immune technology enables the unique capability of using non-contact, three-dimensional optical metrology on the production floor, providing new levels of defect inspection with micrometer-level resolution. In partnership with OptiPro Systems, the 4Di InSpec AMS systems were delivered in the second half of 2023 to several leading aerospace engine manufacturers.

“We are honored to be recognized as an innovator by a robotic industry leader like FANUC America,” said Erik Novak, vice president and general manager of Onto Innovation subsidiary 4D Technology. “The combination of FANUC robotics with 4Di non-contact sensor technologies provides a unique platform for improving throughput, quality and delivery times in industrial manufacturing. We look forward to the continued expansion of our automation metrology portfolio to help our customers solve some of the more complex industrial manufacturing challenges in the industry.”

The aviation industry is focused on safety amid the ongoing labor shortage post-pandemic, driving a renewed emphasis for an increase in quality control and improved labor utilization. Currently, visual inspection of engines is the standard quality control practice, including repro-rubber and shadowgraph off-line techniques, which are time-consuming and subjective. The industry can utilize the 4Di InSpec automated metrology solution to achieve significantly higher sampling rates and improved quality control while providing fast, accurate and reproducible results. The automated system is capable of measuring 400 typical engine call-out measurements in under 30 minutes, which can take weeks using traditional methods, enabling manufacturers to reallocate labor for
other critical tasks.

The technology has demonstrated the ability to reduce scrap and rework by up to 40% on engine components.
The 4Di InSpec AMS can be configured for multiple applications, including large, rotary applications, small freeform components such as turbine blades and multi-sensor applications. Bob Wasilesky, senior director of sales and marketing for Onto Innovation subsidiary 4D Technology, said, “Multi-sensor, automated systems are the next step to delivering increased value to our customers, where one robot, with dual sensors, can measure surface roughness, surface features and defect inspection all in one system, greatly increasing efficiencies.” To learn more about Onto’s 4Di InSpec automated metrology system, visit the 4D Technology website or contact us.

LWIR Transmission and Refection Measurement of Plano Optics at Normal and Variable Angles of Incidence


Accurate and reliable infrared spectral measurements of optical coatings are one of the most critical challenges today. Optical manufacturers around the world specify increasingly sophisticated IR coatings for their planar optics focusing on better detection and identification of objects at long distances. Often, the production capabilities for obtaining optical coatings are well ahead of the existing metrological capabilities for certifying their quality.

The PHOTON RT 7512 spectrophotometer is a unique instrument specially designed to effectively meet these challenges. The instrument allows measuring the transmission and reflection of coatings designed for LWIR. An unsurpassed feature of the PHOTON RT 7512 is the ability to carry out automatic measurements at variable angles of incidence up to 60 degrees in polarized light. These non-trivial tests are supported with the built-in feature which accurately compensates for beam displacement at high angles and ensures S-pol and P-pol results in just a few minutes. Maximum thickness of the sample can be a record 40 mm.


  • High accuracy measurements at normal and variable AOI

  • Built-in high-contrast polarizers

  • Extremely low noise measurements

  • Fully automatic operation

WAVELENGTH RANGE:  2,7 – 5,2 µm


MWIR On-axis Transmission Measurement of Lenses and Lens Assemblies.

Why spectral measurements of lenses are so important?

Most of the optical parts are lenses. Lenses come in vast variety of forms and sizes, both convex, concave, cylindrical and aspheric.
Lenses are coated in vacuum chambers when placed on the fixture or planetary rotation holder.

Due to the nature of the vacuum deposition process there is no possibility to measure actual transmittance or reflectance on lenses in a real time.
So flat witness samples are always used for process monitoring. However, the coating on lenses often differs from that on the witness sample.
For many applications, it is critical to know transmission of the real lens.
The actual optical performance can be often analyzed only once all lenses are installed in the optical system.
It may take substantial time and efforts to identify the «bad» lens.
These costs grow even higher for systems and objectives having multiple lenses. Needless to say, spectral performance of complete lens objectives also needs to be assessed!

LINZA 2752 spectrophotometer effectively addresses these challenges when it comes to on-axis transmission measurements of MWIR lenses and objectives. With its large compartment and sliding detectors, one can successfully measure individual lenes with diameter from 10 mm to 150 mm, and complete lens assemblies with end-to-end length up to 680 mm.
