Vision Engineering Releases New High-End Measurement Systems
Vision Engineering’s LVC200 and Plus variants offer quick, accurate measurements for large components and multiple small components.
Vision Engineering broadens its LVC automated video measurement system range with the LVC200 and higher-specification Plus variants. The company recommends these systems for measuring large components or multiple small components swiftly and accurately.
The LVC range offers a choice of measuring capacities and fully automated movement in all 3 axes, making component measurement faster. The system is pre-programmable or can be joystick-driven for quick, one-off measurements. Users can create programs with non-stop measurement routines and built-in magnification changes, as well as use them to measure multiple components on the stage in a single operation.
Different stage sizes include an 8” x 6” x 8” stage for the LVC 200 and LVC200+, with the larger LVC400 sporting a 16” x 12” x 8” stage.
The LVC series now features 5MP or 6.4MP cameras, 6.5:1 or 12:1 motorized zoom with a 700x magnification range and granite and aluminum bases that enhance stability and precision. The Plus version also increases the field of view for faster measurement. LVC supports using a touch probe in all three axes for a wide range of industrial measurement applications, including precision machining, casting, plastic molding, electronics and medical devices.
LVC uses M3 software, which offers a rich suite of measurement functions that include advanced video edge detection, easy reporting and data export, DXF overlays and profile fitting.
Vision Engineering’s customers report that LVC is ideal for acquiring fast, accurate measurements and is intuitive for non-specialists.
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.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
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.
