Measurement System Scans Multiple Parts Simultaneously
Eastec 2017: OGP (Optical Gaging Products), a division of Quality Vision International (QVI), offers the Fusion 400 large field-of-view (LFOV) multi-sensor measurement system.
OGP (Optical Gaging Products), a division of Quality Vision International (QVI), offers the Fusion 400 large field-of-view (LFOV) multi-sensor measurement system. Designed with the power, speed and versatility to automate measurement and maximize throughput, the system is as suited to the quality assurance lab as to manufacturing environments, the company says.
The heart of the unit’s capability is the LFOV optical system. Low Mag enables fitting a number of parts into a single 100-mm field of view. AutoMeasure analyzes any part and displays its basic geometry without a programmed measurement routine. With AutoID, a previously programmed part (or multiple parts) may be placed anywhere on the stage, even without fixturing. Fusion will identify the parts and their orientation and measure them automatically. The High Mag optical path allows up-close measurement of small features, with the added efficiency of autofocus.
Fusion 400 is equipped with QVI’s Zone3 CAD-based 3D metrology software.
Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
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.
