Marposs Updates Optical Testing System Software
Marposs has updated its software for Optoquick and Optoflash with a smart-search function for viewing results, as well as a user-friendly interface.
Marposs has updated the software within its Optoquick and Optoflash optical technology testing systems. The updated software promotes user-friendliness with an optimized interface, helping users utilize and configure new measurements, while a smart-search function archives all measurements for retrieval.
Optoquick is an optical and contact gauging solution that Marposs says is suited for high-precision gauging controls on cam, crank, gear and drive shafts. The company says it provides a fast and precise quality control solution directly next to the machine tool on the manufacturing floor, speeding up work-in-progress operations and eliminating time wasted in moving parts across the shop floor. Optoquick is available in five different models based upon part size.
The company’s Optoflash is a precision measuring solution based on 2D optical technology, and the device provides fast and extensive quality control of small-size shafts and fasteners. Optoflash features an industrial-grade architecture which Marposs says makes it well-suited for both laboratory and production environments. The company says Optoflash’s four currently available models best suit the precision mechanical device and medical industries.
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.
Guidelines used to standardize the measuring process can provide a good basis for making gage decisions.
While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
