Marposs Adds to Family of Optical Measuring Solutions
Marposs’ OptoFlash XS60 is suited for fasteners and medical implant inspection. It’s capable of 360-degree analysis of machined and plastic parts.
Marposs has added the OptoFlash XS60 to its family of 2D optical measuring systems. According to the company, it is capable executing a 360-degree analysis of components, both machined and plastic, and returning a graphical report of the measurements within seconds. The OptoFlash XS60 is suitable for 100 percent inspection of small fasteners, screws, medical implants and so on, in a production environment or a lab.
The OptoFlash enables over 100 static measurements on parts up to 60 mm in length and 20 mm in diameter within two seconds at U95 = 1 µm + D/200 (D in mm) with the ability to switch from one part type to another with one click. It captures images of the component over the 360 degrees, combining several images to determine part optical axis and measurements of the features.
According to the company, it is a compact solution measuring 610 mm × 545 mm × 400 mm (2′ × 1.75′ × 1.25′). It accommodates both manual and automatic loading by robot, as well as dynamic or static measurement.
OptoFlash XS60, like the smaller XS30 version, is suited for measuring small chamfers or grooves, even below 100 µm extension, or small changes of diameter along the part axis, thru hole diameters, Run-Out, perpendicularity, barrel shape, profiles and more.
All OptoFlash systems feature Marposs’ new software designed with an intuitive interface that allows anyone to use and configure new measurements on an OptoFlash system, providing an efficient measuring process, says the company. All measurements are archived for retrieval by the smart search function, and the included monitor comes on a flexible arm that can be installed on either side of the system. An integrated USB hub with seven ports provides connection capabilities to printers, code readers or external memory. The ethernet port allows users to connect the XS system with their network anytime.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.

A laser scanning system helps this shop capture the free-form surfaces on a hand-sculpted original. The resulting digitized models are the basis for CAM applications such as programming a CNC machining center.
