Nikon Introduces the CNC Video Measuring System ‘NEXIV VMZ-H3030’

Published: Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 12:00

(Nikon Corp.: Tokyo) -- Nikon announces the release of the CNC video measuring system, NEXIV VMZ-H3030, suitable for measuring precision samples, such as semiconductor packages, electronic parts, and machined parts.

Product development background

Using Nikon’s proprietary optical and image processing technology, the CNC video measuring systems of the NEXIV series automatically measure dimensions of various precision parts and electronic components. By analyzing acquired images and accurately detecting edges at high speed, the systems quickly measure samples with complicated shapes. Utilizing the high-build quality and functions of the existing NEXIV VMZ-R series, the NEXIV VMZ-H3030 provides greater precision, allowing Nikon to support measurement applications that require demanding quality control.

Key features

Highly accurate and fast measurements: Higher accuracy is achieved with the high-precision linear encoder and motion stage. In addition, the fast image-transfer speed (frame rate: 30 fps) and lighting control have accelerated overall measuring throughput.

Measurement flexibility: With the high-performance, through-the-lens (TTL) laser autofocus, transparent samples of 0.1 mm thickness can be detected. Furthermore, the ring illumination’s angle adjustment improves edge detection of complex shapes, responding to the measurement needs for samples such as machined parts, molding parts, high-density PCBs, and 300-mm semiconductor wafers.

Advanced Operability and Software: Measurements can easily be done with fewer procedures to create teaching files, as well as utilizing comprehensive functions, including a customizable screen and as well as offline teaching. Highly valuated NEXIV VMZ-R series software is available with the NEXIV VMZ-H3030, making it possible to add functions suitable for the application, such as image synthesis and analysis, and generating inspection reports.
