MetaLight Line Light

The narrow, structured beam of the Metalight Line Light delivers high intensity and concentrated light for the narrow field of view of a traditional line scan camera.  The high intensity and uniformity allows the Metalight Line Light to be used as a front light to inspect for material defects, angled to obtain an off-axis effect to highlight surface defects, or it may be placed beneath the object for a backlight effect to inspect for holes, voids, or contaminants.  The Metalight Line Light is available with a wide variety of LED colors such as white, red, green, blue, IR, UVS, and UVL.
