"The upgrade took 4 weeks and saved us $30,000. We were able to roll that savings into a radius of curvature update; we now have a new system with increased capability and came in under budget."

Jason C., REO

RENEWAL — Ship old…returns like new

The optics last nearly forever but the electronics’ and software’s half-life is about five years. After five years your production is at increasing risk. You send the system to us and we return it, in many cases, working better than new.

An upgrade is like a new interferometer, a second life

  • New 1-MegaPixel Measurement camera
  • New Alignment camera
  • Modern electronics and new remote control
  • Latest PC computer, 64-bit W10 OS, & 24” Monitor
  • ÄPRE REVEAL™ – with vibration tolerant data acquisition
  • Thin USB cables, instead of vibration inducing cables
  • Clean, Performance Test and Train

REPAIR — Upon approval

At times repairs are needed. Motors fail, stages are stuck, zoom optics frozen, or a beam splitter is debonding. With your approval, we will make the necessary repairs.

Fix those annoying problems that limit its usefulness

  • Replace broken or failing components (optical, mechanical and electrical)
  • Align optical and mechanical components
  • Deep clean inside optical subsystems

INTERFEROMETERS — Upgraded / Restored

Often interferometers are abandoned by their manufacturer. ÄPRE electronics and software adapt to even 40 year-old systems. You might be surprised at what can be done.

POWERFUL DATA — Analysis and Reporting

All ÄPRE upgrades come with ÄPRE REVEAL™, the same as found on our S-Series state-of-the-art interferometers. Nothing is compromised. Vibration tolerant acquisition, complete analysis of key parameters to ISO standards, and an often neglected requirement – flexible reporting specific to your needs and not resorting to screen grabs.

All upgrades use ÄPRE’s REVEAL™ software providing measurement to report in <10 seconds
