Letter from our President

"4D continues to uphold its reputation as the innovators in optical metrology."

James Millerd, PhD, President of 4D technology

I'd like to start the year by thanking our customers, vendors and representatives for making 2017 4D Technology's most successful to date. In the past twelve months 4D has seen record sales, a rapidly-growing team, building expansions, new patents, and innovations across all of our product lines.

Our 4D InSpec® Surface Gauge continues to take the world by storm. As the first handheld instrument for measuring surface defects and features, the 4D InSpec makes it possible to measure surface defects right on the factory floor, with speed and flexibility that simply cannot be matched by equipment in a metrology lab. Aircraft and aerospace maintenance and repair facilities have experienced enormous benefits from the gauge, including a marked reduction in measurement cycle time and cost-savings from reduced scrap and rework.

The new PhaseCam® 6100 is the smallest dynamic interferometer, capable of taking on the largest jobs. At just 33cm long the PhaseCam is the new the go-to system for making tough measurements over long paths, from measurement towers and into environmental chambers. A new high-powered external source also facilitates highly accurate ESPI measurements using a standard PhaseCam interferometer.

Our family of AccuFiz® Fizeau interferometers has long been considered the best value for use throughout the optics shop, offering the apertures, wavelengths and features for a wide range of measurements. Our new Large Aperture Accessories leverage the performance of a standard AccuFiz for measuring optics up to 800mm in diameter, providing the highest performance and value for measuring large optics.

Research programs from oceanography to astronomy, and industrial applications from glass manufacturing to measuring stress in plastics, have benefited by the unique strengths of our PolarCam Snapshot Micropolarizer Cameras. A new line of PolarCam models has just been released as well to improve speed, resolution and functionality for a range of new possibilities.

4D continues to uphold its reputation as the innovator in optical metrology. From our patented Dynamic Interferometry® technology to the latest developments in high speed imaging and industrial quality, 4D leads the world in smart metrology solutions that solve real-world problems. And, 4D is currently hiring for key positions throughout our team, so we encourage you to visit our Careers page to learn more about how you can be part of the excitement.
