Brown & Sharpe Tesa, a Hexagon Metrology company, offers its Tesavisio 200, a non-contact video measuring device. The high-precision, scalable system can be reconfigured at any time. Its measurement range is 200 × 100 × 150 mm. The manual stamp is said to be ideal for smaller parts, shopfloor measurement and inspection applications in medical, aerospace, plastics and more.
The system package includes a high-resolution, color CCD camera (752 × 582 pixels) with manual focus and coarse- or fine-adjustment features. Linear encoders with 0.05-µm resolution are mounted on each axis. The system has a variety of fixed lens options, as well as a manual zoom index that can be set to different zoom positions. The configuration also includes a computer and 19″ monitor to view high-resolution images captured by the system.
The system comes standard with Tesa-Vista measurement software providing an easy-to-use interface designed for basic shopfloor applications. The product is also offered with optional PC-DMIS Pro or PC-DMIS CAD software—both advanced solutions for measurement applications in 2D and 3D.
Other features include a solid-granite base and column, pre-stressed carriages mounted on precise monorails and linear encoders mounted on each axis. A red laser pointer helps to locate features to be checked.
