Demonstration of PC-DMIS with MultiCapture

Demonstration of MultiCapture feature of PC-DMIS


MultiCapture is a vision measurement technology that automatically finds multiple features that fit within the same field of view and captures their measurement data simultaneously. Upon completing the measurements in a particular field of view, MultiCapture drives the camera to the next cluster of features and measures them in the same way. This sequence continues until the inspection program is complete. MultiCapture also works with manual vision systems by prompting the user to move the viewfinder to successive zones of densely populated features.

Leica Powerlock Demo

The Leica Absolute Tracker is now equipped with PowerLock. This vision technology automatically locks onto any moving target without user intervention. Current laser tracker technology requires that the operator pays careful attention that the laser beam between the tracker and the target is not interrupted.


PowerLock prevents such interruptions. By utilizing a vision system built into the Leica Absolute Tracker the sensor can now determine where a target is without the need for the laser beam to be locked on. The Leica Absolute Tracker locks on to the target automatically as soon as it is within view of the sensor. This allows operators to focus on the part they need to measure without constantly worrying about the laser tracker and whether or not they have broken the beam. PowerLock works with all standard reflectors and all Leica T-Products.
