(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.

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs, a world leader in measurement and process monitoring technologies, has announced the availability of its HeTech helium technology nondestructive leak testing machines for battery systems used in electric vehicles. These machines help identify the presence of leaks in cooling tubes, hoses, and plates; prismatic battery cells and modules, as well as battery pack assemblies. These systems enable parts to be checked for defects without being transferred to a measurement lab, eliminating the need to reload and reposition the part for any necessary reworking, improving the process and optimizing cycle time.

Using helium-charged vacuum technology the part is placed into a chamber where a vacuum is created. The part is then pressurized with helium and any leakage is measured through a mass spectrometer. These helium-charged systems feature two vacuum chambers with manual opening and closing. The chambers alternate so that while one chamber is closed and running the test cycle, the other chamber is open for loading/unloading.
