Quality Vision International’s c-vision video contour projector combines the accuracy and automation of a video measuring system with the high load capacity of a horizontal comparator. Two models are available: a small footprint model for use on a benchtop or a high-capacity floor model capable of handling workpieces weighing as much as 300 lbs.

The shop-floor measuring system features an optical system with two internal optical magnifications and 10 digital zoom settings, providing a full 16:1 zoom range. At its lowest magnification, the system provides a 3" field of view equivalent to a 30" optical comparator, the company says. Optics are fully telecentric to ensure accurate measurements throughout the entire depth of field. A QVI digital megapixel camera captures and measures the entire field of view in one snapshot, enabling simultaneous measurement of multiple features. The Measure-X 2D metrology software provides a user-friendly interface with the capabilities of full video measurement software.
