The SavvyInspectorTM project continues to
move forward. We can now make larger
systems and custom part holders for new
applications.  Check out our SIF16, a 400 x 200
mm system with autoscan and mapping.

What's new at Savvy!

The DCS show as great! Thanks everyone for stopping by to see the new motorized system and checking
out our v6.0 software.  We are very excited about the new autoscan feature; with a motorized system you can
now program in the dimensions of your part, hit autoscan, and watch the system move about grabbing
images of the entire surface, 9 mm x12 mm  at a time.  I posted a video of that software
here, but at the show
we got the suggestion of adding a pause button, to allow you to stop the scan when you see something
interesting, move over and grab a scratch or dig measurement, and then resume the autoscan.  We've
added the feature and it works great!  
Contact us if you want to talk about an upgrade to the latest hardware
and software.

Haven't updated the website in a while; sorry about that.  In November my website hosting company got
re-branded, and required new software to do updates.  I finally got the new software loaded and running.

We are exhibiting at SPIE DSS, and looking forward to showing off the new features of the SIF4M motorized
system.  We are hoping to be joined by our new distributor in Europe, but that might be complicated.  

We have continued to develop the SIF4 platform, with more features and software as well as a motorized
z-axis.  We are also building a custom system now which has 400 x 200 mm of travel!  We expect this to be
popular for inspection of short pulse and ICF lasers. I hope to have pictures of it at the show.

Big news! We have finally found a company in Germany with whom we can work on bringing the
SavvyInspector to continental Europe.  Savvy Optics is proud to welcome Dioptic GmbH to the Savvy family.  
Dioptic has several metrology-related products, including the Argos, a lens inspection system for ISO/DIN
dimensional surface imperfections.

Gearing up for  Optifab in Rochester in October.  I am thrilled that SPIE is going to focus on specifications
training in their course offering, with an unprecidented six courses focused on optics specifications.  This is
everyone's big chance to catch up on specifications and standards, and show SPIE that these topics are
central to our optical engineering portfolio.

We will also be showcasing our new SIF-4M, the joystick controlled, motorized SavvyInspectorTM.  This new
system has some great features, and I have decided to switch over completely to the motorized version for
my own standard certification work in-house.  Give me a call or email if you are a current user of the SIF-4 or
SIF-4E and want to consider upgrading to the latest and greatest Savvy Optics has to offer.

DSS show went great!  Thanks everyone for coming by!

I just got word that we will be teaching an entire session of standards classes at OptiFab in Rochester this
coming October.  I will post more information later this month.

Looking forward to the SPIE DSS show in Baltimore in April.  We will be exhibiting, showing off the latest
software for the SavvyInspectorTM SIF4E.  See you there on the show floor!

After many requests, we have decided to go ahead and offer our entire series of classes out in southern
California in May this year.  This is your big chance to check out our brand new class "A practical guide to
specifying optics".  Or you can come to one of our many popular classes on Scratch and Dig inspection,
Waviness, or ISO 10110 drawings.  You can sign up
here, or just click the "Register" link above.  I'm really
looking forward to this!
