Quality Vision International (QVI)’s Fusion 350 large field of view multisensor metrology system is designed to characterize large parts or groups of small parts that primarily require 2D measurement.

The system is capable of large-field optics, which enables high accuracy imaging areas as wide as 100 mm. According to the company, its image analysis software tools can instantly process and identify all features and dimensions within the field of view, with no need for a pre-programmed measurement routine. If a measurement routine has been prepared, the AutoID feature enables users to place any previously programmed part or parts anywhere on the stage, even without fixturing, and the system will identify and automatically measure the parts.

This system is ideal for high-speed measurement of 2D parts. With its 450- × 450-mm measuring area and flexible dual magnification optics, it accommodates large parts or groups of smaller parts and measures both large and small feature sizes. A DRS laser and TP20 touch-trigger probe are available for three-axis measurements.

All models are equipped with Zone3 Express CAD-based 3D metrology software. This software features a kinematic model to simulate the machine, part, fixtures and measuring sensors, updated in real time. Built-in tools, integrated GD&T functionality and visual validation of measurement intent offer speed and power to the measurement process, according to the company. The software supports simultaneous use of multiple sensors, making appropriate tools available for complex measurement tasks.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
