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.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
