Optical/Video Dimensional Measurement Systems Guide
by Jesse Jones and Laurel Thoennes
Welcome to Quality Digest's 2001 Optical/Video Dimensional Measurement Systems guide. The matrix, which you can download by clicking here, contains information on products from nearly 30 companies that manufacture optical comparators, measuring
microscopes or video measurement systems.
You will need Acrobat reader to read this file.
Each product listing includes critical product specifications to help you narrow your choices when selecting an optical- or video-measurement product or system.
For manufacturers that sell product lines varying only in stage size, screen size and so forth, we have combined individual products within a product line into one entry
and then listed the range of specifications for that entry.
Due to space constraints, only manufacturers are listed in the matrix, not their
distributors. A brief list of distributors follows the matrix.
As with all of our buyers guides, the 2001 Optical/Video Dimensional Measurement
Systems Guide is intended only to provide readers with helpful information. Quality Digest hasn't evaluated, nor do we endorse, any of the products or manufacturers
listed in this guide. Only those companies that responded to our requests for information are listed. If a particular manufacturer you're looking for isn't included
here, it's because it didn't respond to our request for information or we didn't know about the company. For more information on this subject, check George Fabel's
article "Machine Vision Systems Looking Better all the Time" at www.qualitydigest.com/oct97/html/machvis.html , Michael Neeve's "The Evolution
of Machine Vision" ( www.qualitydigest.com/mar98/html/vision.html ), or Matthew
Haag's "Maximizing Your Video Measurement System Investment" (www.qualitydigest.com/june99/html/video.html ).
We hope this buyers guide will help you in your selection of optical or video measurement equipment. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
