Shadowgraphs are an optical measuring method that is used for the inspection and measurements of part profiles, and is one of the oldest methods of non-contact inspection. The shadowgrapher is a  time-tested, cost effective measurement solution for a wide range of applications. Also commonly known as optical compositors, these systems are easy to use and boast clear optics, superb lighting and a highly accurate workstage which help to ensure bright sharp images and exceptional accuracy.
