Optical Systems

Solution Examples

Below you find examples of optical systems designed and produced by POG in cooperation with our customers.

Industrial measurement equipment

Confocal 3D-measurement system

The 3D-Scanning-System enables non-contact measurement of object geometries in nearly real-time. The system is the result of a collaborative effort between POG and the University of Ulm‘s Institute for Laser Technology in Medicine and Measurement Technique (www.ilm-ulm.de).
A typical application is the exact measurement of tooth geometries in dentistry and orthodontics. High measurement speed, very large aspect ratio and easy handling (the scanner is simply waved over the object) make the scanner an excellent tool for a wide range of 3D measurement applications.
Its flexible design allows for customization of the system to your specific scanning & form-factor needs. Please contact us to learn more about a customized solution.

Further applications include:

Specifications of a typical configuration:

  • 25 µm in x-y
  • 5 µm in z


  • 1-5 ms single-shot-measurement with max. resolution in z
  • 35 cm2/s at max. resolution in x,y,z

Measurement Field

  • 11x11x11 mm3 for single shot measurement
  • Extended by moving the scanner or the object

Working Distance

  • Typ. 50 mm

Light source

  • LED, Xenon Lamp
Wide Field Collimator

This system was developed specifically for inline inspection of mobile phone cameras. It can be integrated into production lines and may also be used in stand-alone test setups. This new system is perfect for testing distortion, resolution and focus for a variety of different objective lenses with a focal length around 4 mm.

The collimator is adjusted to infinity and covers an object field of 68°. A special chessboard pattern is used for the standard reticle. Upon customer request it can be adjusted on demand to match the parameters to be checked.

An adjustable white light LED-illumination with 12...24V DC is integrated by default.

The system is available from stock in small quantities and can be modified to meet your specific demands.
