We’re happy to introduce VisionGauge®’s Patent Pending “Tooth Checker™” tool, specially adapted to check parts with teeth. This innovative new tool automatically locates, to very high accuracy, the crests and / or roots of the teeth and determines if they are within their tolerance band. It can also determine all other part characteristics, such as tooth pitch, thread depth, major & minor diameters, etc…
The Tooth Checker tool can verify that either crests, roots, or both, are in tolerance, using these crest & root points that the Tooth Checker tool has found, it can then automatically determine all other part characteristics:
This powerful new tool is perfect for quickly and accurately checking:
- bone screws,
- medical rasps,
- fluted instruments,
- threads & fittings,
- and much more!
The VisionGauge® Disk Inspection & Measurement System is the the ideal solution for automated, high-accuracy inspection & measurement of slots in turbine disks, both large & small. The system’s patented CAD Auto-Align™ & CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools allow you to automatically check the slot profile, get deviations from nominal, etc…

We’re pleased to announce the new 5X configuration of our 300 Series VisionGauge® Digital Optical
The 300 Series VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators are extremely cost effective Field-of-View
Systems that are ideal to inspect and measure smaller parts, very quickly. And the new 5X
configuration provides a wider field-of-view and a larger depth-of-field that extends the range of parts
that can be checked using the 300 series. Specifically, the new 5X 300 Series machine can
accommodate parts up to 6.4” (diagonal, i.e. 5.5” horizontal x 3.3” vertical) and up to 4” in height. The
new 5X 300 Series VisionGauge® also has a very long working distance that provides 15” of
clearance between the part and the lens.
Like all of the other 300 Series machines, it has very high-resolution optics that produce a very
geometrically accurate image and it also includes three independent light sources that are all LED based
and computer-controlled: transmitted (i.e. back) illumination as well as both on- and off-axis
reflected (i.e. front) illumination. This allows the system to produce crisp, sharp edges and perform
beautifully even when working with hard-to-image materials (for example: shiny, reflective or even
translucent surfaces) and difficult geometries (such as deep holes).
The VisionGauge® 300 Series machines produce a stunning super-high resolution image to carry out
fine, detailed inspections. And the system’s crisp & clear image is displayed on a single super-high resolution
The 300 Series include all of the powerful VisionGauge® tools, including our patented CAD Auto-
Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools, for very fast automatic and operator-independent
comparison of parts to their CAD file, as well as VisionGauge’s® broad measurement toolset.
And because they are field-of-view machines and no motion is involved, the 300 Series
VisionGauge® systems are extremely fast. They can carry out hundreds of inspections and
measurements seconds after you’ve put the part down on the system. They can also accommodate
multiple parts at once.
All 300 Series systems have an intuitive software interface and are extremely easy to use. They can
be setup to be operated using the system’s barcode reader and joystick. They have built-in SPC
capability with charting & graphing and can automatically collect images and data. They also have
extensive data exchange capabilities.
The 300 Series VisionGauge® systems have a convenient desktop configuration, no moving parts
and no consumable parts. They provide many years of reliable service with minimal maintenance.
They are perfect for both the shop environment and the quality control lab. They are complete, ready-to-
run Windows-based solutions that are delivered network-ready and include on-site installation,
NIST-traceable calibration & training.

We’ll be exhibiting at two shows over the next couple of months:
We will be at MESCPE at the Parma Fairground, Italy (Viale delle Esposizioni 393A – 43126 Parma PR) on March 22-24, 2018. We will be exhibiting with BTT Marko s.r.l. at booth number M43 Pavilion 2.
We will also be at the Smart Manufacturing Experience 2018 in Boston, MA at the Boston Convention Center on April 30 – May 2, 2018. We will be exhibiting with Methods Machine at Booth #325.
We are pleased to announce that we have just been awarded a new European Patent for innovative VisionGauge® technologies. This is:
European Patent No. 2417419
Date of Issue: 14 February 2018
Title: DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPARATOR
This is now our 7th patent for technologies related to the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator.
The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator is featured in August 2017’s Quality Magazine in an article titled “Digital Advancements for Shop Floor Inspection of Medical Devices.” The article discusses the difficulties in the measurement and inspection of medical parts, such as orthopedic implants and medical instruments, and the current solutions different types of VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators can offer to meet these challenges.
The article is presently available for download in .pdf format in our Publications section. Our Applications section also contains more information about how the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator can be used for Medical Device and Orthopedic Implant Manufacturing applications.
