Profile Projector

High Quality & Accuracy Profile Projectors, Shadowgraphs, Optical Comparators from Insize

Profile projectors (often referred to as an optical comparator or shadowgraph) are a valuable measuring tool for engineering shopfloors, manufacturing lines or inspection departments. The projector magnifies the profile of the specimen and shows this on the  projection screen. The screen features a grid that can be rotated 360 degrees therefore the X-Y axis of the screen could be aligned correctly using a straight edge of the machined part to analyse or measure.

The advantages include: revealing imperfections such as burrs, scratches, indentations or undesirable chamfers which both micrometers or calipers can’t reveal, they’re able to measure in 2-D space. Unlike micrometers and calipers which measure one dimension at a time, where comparators measure length and width simultaneously.

Profile projectors are ideal for measuring and inspecting small work pieces or tools and have a high level of magnification (e.g. X10 as standard or up to X100 as optional).  Insize profile projectors are the best on the market for functionality at an affordable price.
