The TesaVisio 300 Direct Computer Control (DCC), a non-contact video measuring system from Brown & Sharpe, combines a high-definition CCD camera with PC-DMIS Vision software to measure complex parts.

The system provides an 11.81" (300 mm) × 7.87" (200 mm) × 5.91" (150 mm) XYZ measuring range. A high-resolution image of the part feature is projected on a 17" monitor. The construction includes pre-stressed carriages mounted on precise monorails. Coordinate stages, along with the vertical axis, are displaced by joystick-controlled DC servomotors. According to the company, this allows the user to quickly locate part features. It is also conducive to motor-driven execution of the part program.

    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.
