An autocollimator is an optical tool used to measure angles without making contact. They are often used to measure deflections and align components in mechanical or optical systems. An autocollimator projects an image onto a target mirror and then measures the deflection of the image that is reflected back against a scale, either visually or electronically.
An electrical autocollimator can have up to 100 times more resolution than a visual autocollimator, which can only measure angles as fine as 1 arcsecond (4.85 micro radians). Aligning the ends of laser rods and verifying the face parallelism of optical windows and wedges are common uses for visual autocollimators.
Standardized electronic and digital autocollimators are used for measuring angles, tracking angular movement over time, and assessing the repeatability of angular positions in mechanical systems.
For stable platform applications, servo autocollimators are specialized small versions of electronic autocollimators that are employed in high-speed servo-feedback loops. In most cases, an electronic autocollimator is calibrated to measure the actual mirror angle.
The electronic autocollimator is a high-precision angle measurement tool without an optical eyepiece that can measure angular deviations with accuracy down to fractions of an arcsecond.
Electronic autocollimator measurements are quick, simple, accurate, and generally the most economical method. These highly sensitive devices, which are widely used in workshops, tool rooms, inspection divisions, and quality control labs all over the world, can measure incredibly small angular displacements, squareness, twists, and parallelism.
The autocollimation equipment may now be improved to enable direct measurements of incoming laser beams thanks to new technologies. This new feature allows for the inter-alignment of mirrors, lasers, and optics.
Autocollimation technology, which has been around for a century, and laser technology, which is relatively new, have been combined to create a very versatile instrument that can measure inter-alignment between multiple line of sights, laser in relation to mechanical datum, alignment of laser cavity, measurement of multiple rollers parallelism in roll to roll machinery, laser divergence angle and its spatial stability, and many other inter-alignment applications.
The Global autocollimators market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A new Total Station Autocollimator has been introduced by Duma Optronics for complex measurements, such as optics, laser alignment, and displaying virtual objects over a broad range of distances.
The new Autocollimator is intended to function in a variety of applications and is designed as a multi-tool. A system like AR/VR, cameras for driverless vehicles, or projection displays will need to be automatically adjusted due to emerging trends in the optoelectronics industry.
An improved tool for testing and changing fully integrated systems, including mechanics, optics, and lasers, based on Duma’s already-developed technology.
