Smart Camera Solves Complex Inspections
Powered by deep learning software, the Cognex In-Sight D900 expands what can be measured in factory automation. The all-in-one device automates in-line inspections for industries ranging from automotive, consumer electronics, and consumer products to packaging, food and beverage, medical devices, and logistics.
Bimetal Reciprocating Saw Blades Triple Cutting Performance
Featuring a reinforced shank that helps resist breakage, 3X Power blades from L.S. Starrett cut metal and other materials more efficiently. A version with heat-treated teeth set at a super-aggressive pitch cuts fast in applications such as demolition and emergency vehicle extrication.
L.S. Starrett Expands Hardness Testing Line with 16 Products
L.S. Starrett’s 16 hardness-testing solutions include seven Rockwell systems, eight Vickers systems, and one Brinell system. Suitable for internal and external testing via dolphin nose design, the No. 3823 and No. 3824 test carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, and nonferrous metals per 30 Rockwell hardness scales.
High-Performance Height Gauge
Mitutoyo America Corp.’s QM-Height Series measures height, height difference (step), inside/outside widths, inside/outside diameters, circle pitch, and free-form surface max/min heights to ±(2.4+2.1L/600) μm. Simple-to-use control panel enables most measurements to be made with one keystroke.
Higher-Resolution Addition to AICON SmartScan Range
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s R12 is a 12-megapixel version of the company’s AICON SmartScan white light scanner. The higher-resolution camera increases the accuracy of a system known for versatility and portability.
Two Measurement Solutions from Mitutoyo
The multisensor MiSCAN Vision System is a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with a microscopic-level scanning probe. The compact MiSTAR 555 is a space-saving in-line or near-line CNC CMM designed for high-speed, high-accuracy measurements with assurance from 10° C to 40° C.
CMMs Increase Productivity in Specialized Manufacturing Sectors
Hexagon’s Leitz Reference BX coordinate measuring machine (CMM) accelerates blade and glass measurement up to 50%, addressing long-standing challenges faced by aAerospace and consumer electronics manufacturers. Multisensor 3D OPTIV M CMM gives manufacturers of small and medium precision parts greater configuration flexibility.
