SMX Interferometers for existing customers only

for inspection of

SMX interferometers are designed for testing the end face geometry of fiber optic ferrules, patch cords, pigtails and bare fiber in the process of polishing and assembly. SMX interferometers are compact white-light and phase-shift interferometers superior in both accuracy and speed. Sumix interferometric systems feature high-resolution and high-contrast optics, calibration-free fixtures, modern and intuitive software.
