Vision Engineering Launches a Fully Automated Three-Axis Video Measurement System

Ideal for measuring large components in precision machining, casting, plastic moldings, electronics, and PCB inspection

Published: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 11:00

(Vision Engineering: Woking, UK) -- May 14, 2019, saw the launch of the LVC400, the first fully automated 3-axis video measurement system from Vision Engineering.

Ideal for measuring large components or multiple small components, quickly, easily, and accurately, LVC400 offers faster measurement, high accuracy levels, and benefits from Vision Engineering’s consistent focus on ease of use for all its products.

Offering a larger (400 × 300mm) stage than comparably priced products, LVC400 offers large measuring capacity and fully automated movement in all 3 axes, making component measurement faster. Nonstop measurement routines are possible through programs which can have magnification changes built in.

Additionally, multiple components can be loaded onto the stage and measured easily and automatically in a single program. The system is preprogramable or can be driven using the supplied joystick for rapid, one off measurements.

Highly accurate

LVC400 features a high-resolution 5MP USB3 camera with granite base for extra stability and a precision X-Y stage, making it the most accurate large-format measuring system from Vision Engineering to date. LVC400 also supports the use of a touch probe in all three axes for measuring complex features and other 3D forms.

Easy to use

LVC400 is supplied with the highly intuitive M3 software package offering comprehensive measurement functions, whilst maintaining the ease of use for which Vision Engineering is well-known. M3 software includes full reporting and data export, DXF overlays and fitting, and thread measurement.

Vision Engineering anticipates that LVC400 will be used when customers require the measurement of large components in applications such as precision machining, casting, plastic moldings, electronics, and PCB inspection. Additionally LVC400 is ideal when automated measurement is required, including palletizing of smaller components, faster measurement of large components, and measurement of components that require change of magnification.

“We are excited to extend our metrology range by offering our first fully automated video measurement system with motorized zoom,” says Richard Nagel, Vision Engineering’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The LVC400 offers many sought-after features and benefits customers need when looking for a fully automated video measurement system. The LVC400’s large stage, accuracy, ease of use, combined with a competitive price point makes this a welcomed addition to our metrology range.”

Highlights:
• LVC400 is for applications that require higher accuracy and/or contact measurement.
• Supplied with M3 software for ease of use and intuitive operation
• Ideal for customers who want to measure large components or multiple small components quickly and easily
• Competitively priced
• LVC400 is designed for measurement application in: precision machining, casting; plastic moldings; electronics, PCB inspection
• LVC400 is ideal for automated workflow such as measurement of palletized component arrays, faster measurement of large components, measurement of components at multiple magnifications.
