Mitutoyo America Corporation Introduces Quick Vision Pro Series

Speed and accuracy can coexist

Published: Tuesday, August 2, 2022 - 11:00

(Mitutoyo: Aurora, IL)-- Mitutoyo America has released the Quick Vision Pro Series, the latest generation of Mitutoyo Vision Measurement Systems. Quick Vision Pro Series machines are packed with high-performance technologies that greatly improve 3D noncontact measurement and productivity.

The new QV Pro Series features StrobeSnap vision measuring function that speeds up run time by approximately 35 to 45 percent, regardless of measurement position or continuity, while achieving higher throughput and high-precision measurements.

Auto focus on the QV Pro Series is about 39-percent faster than previous models, which were already fastest in their class, without loss of accuracy.

An optional Stream function realizes high throughput using nonstop measurements that synchronize the main XY unit drive and strobe lighting. Stream takes images intermittently without stopping the stage and performs batch measurements at the same time, which greatly improves measurement speeds.

Optional Tracking Auto Focus (TAF) uses a laser tracker that will keep the part in focus while moving the joystick, eliminating the need to keep manually focusing on the part if it’s not flat. When a part program is running, TAF keeps the part in focus, so the program doesn’t have to stop for auto focus. It also stops potential errors from occurring if the part is out of focus. TAF cuts speed measurement times by approximately 30 percent, further improving throughput while maintaining high accuracy.

All the QV Pro Series machines can be retrofit with Stream capability, RGB (red, green, blue) illumination systems, and side-mounted touch probe kits.

For more information or assistance regarding the new QV Pro series, contact your local Mitutoyo sales team or the Mitutoyo M³ Solutions Center in your area.
