RAM Optical Instruments was founded in 1981 and quickly became a leading provider of high quality, easy-to-use dimensional measurement systems and accompanying software for manufacturing quality control. RAM offers a full line of shop floor optical measurement systems that are value priced with premium performance.

As a global leader in optical and multi-sensor metrology, Quality Vision International (QVI), acquired RAM Optical Instruments in 2002.

The company designs and builds a complete line of dimensional measuring machines that combine optical, laser, and contact sensors into easy to use systems. QVI systems are used by manufacturers in over 75 countries around the world to measure and inspect their products for quality and process control. Since 1945 the QVI companies have made a singular commitment to improving the technology of dimensional measurement. The acquisition of RAM Optical Instruments brought Quality Vision International to become the world’s largest vision metrology company.

The RAM heritage in optics and projection gaging evolved to global leadership in video and multisensor technologies, and remains so today.
