Product News: Falcon 300 Precision Measuring System

Suitable for shop-floor quality control and manufacturing inspection applications

Published: Tuesday, March 30, 2010 - 10:48

(Vision Engineering: England) -- The new Falcon 300, a powerful three-axis noncontact video measuring system, incorporates more than 50 years of proven optical experience.

Vision Engineering has packed massive technical capabilities into a compact, small footprint system, suitable for shop floor quality control and manufacturing inspection applications, yet delivering performance you would expect to find on systems many times the price.

With a focus on accuracy, Falcon employs high-resolution indexed zoom optics (up to 100× magnification) to provide enhanced component edge definition, with a unique indexed-camera iris control to reduce depth of field, increasing accuracy and repeatability of Z-axis results (a common complaint of video systems).

Even as a compact unit, Falcon incorporates many more advanced features, designed to simplify operation and increase accuracy, including motorized Z-axis control and controllable quadrant LED illumination.

Vision Engineering’s renowned precision measuring stages provide a measurement capacity of up to 150 × 150 × 115 mm (X, Y, Z) and include factory-completed NLEC calibration as standard. And with a powerful, yet intuitive touch-screen color display, the built-in simplicity means that expensive training costs are minimized, with automatic video edge detection ensuring reproducible measurement results, irrespective of the operator.
