The company has added a rotary stage to its Oasis (Optical Automatic Smart Inspection System). The system is a non-contact machine vision inspection system that measures multiple dimensions on a part to an accuracy of ±0.0001", all at the same time. Working with a shadow (profile view) of the part, measurements are taken at a rate of 10 times per second. According to the company, as fast as a user can place a part into the system, every measurement on that part is instantly compared with dimensional tolerances and reports pass, warn or fail.
With the addition of the motorized rotary stage, parts can be rotated 360 degrees to get profile images and measurements from every aspect of the part. All measurements are taken in real-time as the part rotates within the field of view.
By adding the rotary stage to the system, inspectors can ensure that their parts are within specification limits without manually turning the part. Rotating the part adds the ability to check additional features such as roundness and concentricity. With the included software update, all of this additional data is recorded with the built-in Oasis inspection report or can be automatically imported into any SPC program.
