Services Overview


bulletProduct Selection

OMC provides a product selection assistance service for non-contact distance measurement techniques. The devices in our database can vary from tens of metres to a few microns in range while the speed of measurement may be as fast at 500 thousand per second. The techniques may measure in one dimension only or provide a full 3-D measurement capability. The methods available vary from those using light to sound, from interference and time of flight to triangulation. An instrument costs vary considerably from a few pounds to many thousand pounds.

bulletProduct Development

We are able to assist in the development of new products that required a metrology component. We have a number of techniques at our disposal to add to your project.

bulletProduct Assessment

In the highly specialised area of optical metrology it is often useful for instrument manufacturers to obtain independent advice on the performance of their products. A number of clients have used OMC to analyse their products both to improve performance, benchmark against competition, or plan future developments.

bulletProduct Acceptance

Following the selection of an appropriate measurement product it is usually prudent to perform acceptance tests to familiarise the user with the product and to establish a performance baseline. The complexity of acceptance tests can vary considerably from simple tests against a traceable measurement standard or the development of testing methods where none exist. OMC are able to deliver independence and rigour to the testing procedures where companies may not have the time, equipment, or background knowledge to design such tests themselves.

bulletSystem Installation

We are able to install measurement systems to meet your application requirements.

bulletTutorial Course

A short course on camera calibration can be provided on site for companies or at the centre dependent upon sufficient demand.

bulletCamera Calibration

OMC offers a camera calibration service.


OMC are experienced in working with others in research and development projects. We have a strong academic background complemented by extensive practical experience.
