MATsolutions New Lab Capabilities: Certified Comparator Products’ CC-14 Optical Comparator

The fifth in our series of posts that provides a look inside the MATsolutions accredited calibration and repair lab features the CC-14 Optical Comparator. We calibrate and repair over 25,000 assets annually in our 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art lab, which includes a full range of capabilities from test equipment, mechanical & physical/dimensional devices and tooling, and specialized measurements including humidity, temperature, and light.  The CC-14 Optical Comparator is one more example of our most recent and advanced acquisitions being covered in this series, which also include:

CC-14 Optical Comparator

Overview: The CC-14 Optical Comparator includes three types of illuminators for precise image projection, automatic edge detection software, digital reporting capabilities, and built-in comparative standards features. This set of capabilities allows the comparator to make precision 2-D measurements which include single point location, distance (length and width), angles, and diameter and radius of holes, circles, and arcs.

Used for calibration of: Radius gages; spline gages; profile gages; rulers; gage balls; pins; and custom manufactured parts and tooling.

Importance of the CC-14 Optical Comparator in the MATsolutions lab: MATsolutions believes it’s important to have as broad a range of test & measurement, mechanical and physical/dimensional capabilities as possible under one roof, and we are continually growing and expanding our offerings. The CC-14 Optical Comparator is one such example, and allows us to provide our customers with:

  • Faster turnaround time – typically 3-5 days ;
  • Better value – with all the work being done directly by MATsolutions, there’s no additional 3rd party mark-up
  • Single point of accountability – keeping the work in-house means we have full control over the quality of the work, from start to finish.
