Established in 1972, Brandstrom Instruments, Inc. manufactures and designs miniature rotary solenoids and shutter devices for military, commercial and industrial applications.Specified for their compact size, low power consumption and high resultant force, these precision built electromechanical devices have been used for decades in cockpit panel instrumentation to drive fluorescent flag and drum displays that reliably monitor and alert pilots to changes in circuit conditions as they occur in an aircraft during flight.
Recently our miniature electromagnetic products have satisfied an increasing need for specialized shutter mechanisms in infrared imaging, medical and laser applications. Our shutters open and close ports and pathways, and block light beams from photosensitive areas undergoing calibration or analysis.
Whatever the need may be, we welcome all inquiries for review and will suggest innovative design alternatives to competitive products that may not be living up to expectations. If it is solenoid actuated and you are having problems, we want to provide the answers.
The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 3000 X-ray Diffractometer for research enables accurate measurements.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
Dr. David Dung
We spoke with University of Bonn spin-off Midel Photonics, a start-up company whose laser beam shaping technology is hoping to sharpen up the laser industry.
Matthias Sachsenhauser, Ph.D.
Following Laser World of Photonics 2022, we spoke with Matthias Sachsenhauser from Hamamatsu Photonics about the role of laser-driven light sources in the future of the photonics sector.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
