Quick Scope, the non-contacting, microscope-based measuring system, is available in two configurations: the easy-to-operate, manual QS-E (economy) system and the CNC/manual (motor-driven) QS system. With their compact footprint design, each offers improvements in accuracy and throughput as compared to conventional microscope-based measuring when performing complex measurements for prototyping or lower volume batch work.
Ideal for observation/measurement of single workpieces, the QS-E is said to be economical, with a 0.1µm resolution, 6” (150 mm) Z-axis range and variable magnification (adjusted by changing objectives). It comes standard with co-axial surface illumination and contour stage illumination while fiber optic ring lighting is an option. Part programs can be created in Windows-based QSPAK software, while graphic and navigation functions are said to allow for quick maneuvering around the workpiece.
Compared to a traditional microscope, the CNC-driven QS model can increase throughput, according to the company. For example, typical lead frames are measured in less than one-sixth the time and PCBs in about one-tenth the time. QSPAK software provides the this model with zoom, auto-focus, measurement playback, one-click edge detection, graphic display, 48 different macros and a pattern matching function for several common part features. The X, Y stage can be controlled by a mouse or through the optional multi-function control box.
