Vision Engineering’s Falcon three-axis, non-contact video measuring system is suitable for both multi-user shopfloor applications and lab-level manufacturing inspection. It uses high-resolution, indexed zoom optics (as high as 100× magnification) for component edge definition. An indexed camera iris control reduces depth of field, thereby increasing accuracy and repeatability of Z-axis results, a common complaint of video systems, the company says. Features include controllable quadrant LED illumination and motorized Z-axis control. The unit’s measuring stages provide a measurement capacity of 150 × 150 × 115 mm (X, Y, Z) and include certified calibration completed at the factory as standard. A touchscreen color display is said to provide automatic video edge detection to ensure reproducible measurement results, regardless of the operator.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    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.
