Potomac Photonics adds QC, inspection to micro-machine services

August 18, 2011 — Laser micro-manufacturer Potomac Photonics added advanced quality control (QC) and inspection capabilities to its service offerings for micro-electronics, MEMS, and micro-fluidics, as well as medical, consumer, solar, and bio-photonics projects.

Potomac Photonics selected Media Cybernetics’ Image-Pro Plus Version 7.0 image processing and analysis software, which creates image informatics to automate QC processes.

Measurement standards are key at the micron scale in manufacturing, said Mike Davis, director of operations, Potomac Photonics, noting that the tool will give customers greater insight into process control on their projects. Potomac drills micro holes in polymers, metals, silicon, glass, and ceramics for both prototyping and production applications.

Potomac Photonics uses microfabrication to develop miniature products on a contract basis. Visit the website at www.Potomac-laser.com.
