Optical Measurement Equipment
Filter by Process Zone:
Optical Sensors for Longer Operating Distances
Ideal for Industry 4.0 manufacturing, R20x series photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs use DuraBeam Laser and Multi-Pixel technologies for extremely precise detection and distance measurement of small objects.
Smart Camera for Process Monitoring of Machine Tools
The robust LCAM 408i smart camera from Leuze has an IP65/67 anodized metal housing and easy-to-clean glass pane that opens new monitoring possibilities in metal fabrication and machining processes.
Creating Classic Baseball Sculptures
Exact Metrology worked with artist Tom Tsuchiya to create relief figures of the 1869 Cincinnati Reds team.
Create A Community for Sharing Metalworking Automation
Using the HKP Mobile App from Haydon Kerk Pittman, technical information and other resources on linear and rotary solutions can be easily shared among colleagues and teams for automation in metalworking, inspection and material handling applications.
Xiris Adds Web Page for Weld Educators
Instructors can access whitepapers and a weld video library with over 300 videos on the use of weld cameras.
Horizontal Tool Setter with Optical Transmission
For use on vertical machining centers, the horizontal VOTS 90 deg optical probe from Marposs provides unidirectional repeatability of 1 μm that is ideal for presetting and verification of breakage, wear and integrity checks and length and diameter measurements on small cutting tools.
Measure Gears with Different Diameters Without Mechanical Retooling
For measuring flexibility on the shop floor, the M62 Flex manual bench gauge from Marposs uses a universal reference to locate each part and soft-touch engagement with the gear being measured to prevent any potential damage from contact.
High Throughput Automatic Vision Inspection of Repetitive, Larger Parts
The 3-axis AV450 Automatic Vision System from Starrett is so versatile, accurate and fast that users can cost-effectively achieve high throughput inspection of repetitive, larger parts, as well as routine quality assurance.
Measure Shafts and Cylindrical Parts with No Thermal Variation
Rugged TurnCheck systems from QVI use advanced optics to mitigate the effects of thermal variation and deliver fast, accurate measurements in shop floor conditions where vibration and temperature variation are common.
High Speed 2D Measurement of Large Complex Parts or Groups of Smaller Parts
The innovative Fusion 350 multi-sensor metrology system from QVI has a large field of view optical system that can instantly process and identify all features and dimensions within the field of view, with no need for a pre-programmed measurement routine.
Autonomous Machine Vision: The Total Quality Assurance Revolution
Flexible, easy-to-install and affordable visual quality assurance systems can inspect every stage of production, using artificial intelligence to self-adapt and self-adjust to changes. After reviewing samples, they learn – without any human interaction – all of the part’s attributes, surface characteristics, etc. and begin inspecting in only a few minutes.
Robotic Inspection of Weld Defects
Easily interfaced to any robot system or welding machine, the i-FACT intelligent robotic inspection system from Servo-Robot automatically digitizes joint and bead surfaces to provide geometric data and detect weld defects.
Mazak MegaStir Becomes Exclusive Tooling Supplier for MELD Solid Deposition Technology
MegaStir has the unique ability to provide the complex tooling with the high-strength capability necessary to commercialize MELD’s solid deposition technology.
FABTECH 2023 Unveils Stellar Lineup of Keynote Speakers and Expert Panels
