Model No: HO-OI-AC3
Autocollimator is a versatile non-contact optical instrument for measurement of small angles or tilt movements with very high sensitivity. Holmarc manufactures precision autocollimator as a standard product with Model no. HO-OI-AC3. The instrument finds multitude of applications in shop floor as well as metrology labs for precision measurements of straightness, parallelism, perpendicularity and flatness.

High accuracy Angle measurements
Non-contact measurement
Repeatable Measurements
LED illumination

The autocollimator projects an image of a reference cross wire to the object under inspection and receive the reflected image from the object. Shift in the reflected image compared to the fixed reference crosswire represents angle. A linear stage driven by a micrometer carries the fixed cross wire near to the eyepiece of the instrument. Operator can determine shift and hence the angle by moving the fixed cross wire and aligning it with the reflected image. Graduations on the micrometer give angular measurements directly in arc seconds.

In most cases, the object under inspection may not be having reflective surfaces. In order to carry out inspection, operator needs to fix a plane mirror to the object for reflecting back the light to the instrument. Holmarc supplies a front coated mirror along with kinematic mount as a standard accessory along with autocollimator.

Holmarc's autocollimator has stainless steel body and high precision optics. Illumination is by an LED. A kinematic stage with two axes tilt movements holds the instrument on a height adjustable stand. A heavy cast iron base provides required stability for measurements.
