The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator’s new “Min/Max” software tool is the perfect solution for automatically aligning a part using a rotary stage. The tool can be setup to rotate the part and find the position that either minimizes or maximizes a dimension.
Common examples include the following:
With this new Min/Max tool, it’s extremely easy to setup an automated routine for the alignment of any kind of part. Also, results are extremely repeatable. This advanced tool uses high-order interpolation for very accurate subsampling. This means that the position of best alignment can be found very accurately, at any orientation (not just at the sampled orientations).
This new tool is completely integrated with all of the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator’s other tools so that all of its results can easily be recoded, transmitted, databased, sent to Excel™ or any other data capture application, put in a report, etc…
This new Min/Max tool further increases the wide range of applications that can easily and reliably be solved using the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator.
VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators are being used by many different companies across a very wide range of industries. Here are some examples of applications we have solved within various industries:
In this case study, Paradigm Precision (a large aerospace sub-contractor to GE, UT, Rolls Royce and many others) explains how they are using the VisionGauge® system to carry out 100% inspection of cooling holes on a wide range of complex 5-axis parts, including blades, vanes and heat shields.
They mention that they are achieving a repeatability of +/-0.0001″.
This new higher-magnification configuration was developed to meet the requirements of various higher-magnification applications, such as the fast and accurate inspection and measurement of diamond Electrical Discharge Machined Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD) and Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) cutting tool inserts.
