Upgrade

Periodically improvements to your production instruments will keep them
up-to-date with new industry standard.  It also helps minimize the cost of
purchasing new systems. We offer upgrade services to most out-of-date
metrology, inspection, robotic, laser surface profiler systems, etc.


Our upgrade services include upgrading optical modules, encoders, light
modules, stage motors, motion controller, cameras, air tables, touch
probes, joysticks, stage reconfigurations, and part fixtures.


If you wish to enhance or improve any hardware module of your instruments
that we are not listing, do not hesitate to call or email us at
:

Metrology@directadvop-us.com to consult a customized upgrade service.


When we upgrade your instruments, we don't upgrade the hardware alone.  
Sometimes it is necessary to upgrade the interfacing software to work with
the new hardware.  We also
provide turn-key software and firmware
solutions to replace your out-dated software or even work with your existing
software.

Integration

Most metrology systems on the market are put together with as many
off-the-shelf types of equipment as possible to cut cost.  Therefore, most of
them cannot meet up to your expectations or give you the most comfortable
working conditions.  We offer many integration and modification services
according to your special needs.


For example, if your joystick controller is too big and not ergonomic, we can
evaluate and design new joystick cases for you. If your light module is
shinning too much light to your eyes while working, we can evaluate and
integrate automatic light shading system to your light modules.  If your
systems need more light sources, we can evaluate and integrate more
sources of light.  


Note that any modifications that we performed on your systems may void the
original manufacture warranty.  We will only provide guarantee to the work
that we do and additional devices that we may install on your systems. We
will prove to you that our integrations do not interfere with normal operations
of the module that we worked on within 72 hours.


If you wish to improve any hardware module of your metrology system that
we are not listing, do not hesitate to call or email us at
Metrology@directadvop-us.com to consult a customized integration or
modification service.
