PMTS 2017: QVI Snap digital measurement systems are now equipped with Snap 2.0 metrology software, designed to improve user accessibility and ease of use.

QVI Snap digital measurement systems, offered by RAM division of Quality Vision International, are now equipped with Snap 2.0 metrology software, designed to improve user accessibility and ease of use. The software’s mode selector features three modes of operation.

Measure Mode allows quick caliper-type measurements of one or more parts. The operator places a part on the stage and presses the “Go” button. Feature Extraction automatically identifies the part and measures and reports its features, including circles, arcs, lines, widths and angles.

Program Mode permits manual creation of a new measurement routine, editing of a saved routine, or creation of a new routine from CAD.

Run Mode features a simplified user interface that allows operators to run existing routines. It is useful for those performing repetitive inspection tasks. An administrator can password-lock this or any mode to ensure that measurement functions are performed only by authorized personnel.


  • Surface Finish: A Machinist's Tool. A Design Necessity.

    Simple "roughness" measurements remain useful in the increasingly stringent world of surface finish specifications. Here's a look at why surface measurement is important and how to use sophisticated portable gages to perform inspections on the shop floor.

  • Gaging Countersunk And Chamfered Holes

    While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.

  • 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.
