Our Products

OFDA technology is unsurpassed in many applications, for example:

  • When the price of cashmere can double with a diameter difference of 1um, from Mongolia to Italy OFDA is the number 1 instrument of choice
  • Precise measurement of fibre curvature (crimp) is critical in applications such as filter mesh, OFDA is the only suitable rapid, high accuracy instrument and is used by a leading Swiss filter manufacturer
  • Classing sheep in the Australian outback demands optical systems that work in extreme temperature, vibration and dust levels. OFDA2000 is portable and meets the high accuracy required. OFDA2000 was used to class wool into the finest bale ever produced
  • The resolution and speed of OFDA make it the only choice for measuring ultrafine glass fibres for the highest quality circuit boards used in the next generation of electronic devices


Our Product Range includes:

OFDA 4000

The OFDA4000 is the world's first instrument that measures length and diameter profile of fibres in top (Sliver) form. In one measurement using 1 minute of operator time, the values of diameter, diameter profile, curvature, length, hauteur & barbe can be determined.

The OFDA 4000 is the first instrument to directly measure diameter, length and hauteur of fibres in aligned (sliver, top) form. Suitable for wool, animal and most synthetic fibres.

OFDA 2000 Portable

OFDA 2000 can provide rapid (25 seconds), accurate and precise diameter measurement along the length of greasy wool staples. Fibres in greasy staples are coated with a varying thickness of grease, dirt and suint. The OFDA 2000 automatically corrects for the grease factor, utilising a formula established after exhaustive analysis of Australian and New Zealand flocks.
