We will be exhibiting with Methods Machine Tools at IMTS (McCormick Place, Chicago, IL) on September 10-15, 2018. Come see us at booth 339119.
The VisionGauge® Standalone Inspection & Measurement System is the perfect drop-in solution for automated cells and automation applications requiring high-accuracy inspection. The system is widely-applicable and extremely general-purpose. All of VisionGauge®’s advanced inspection and measurement capabilities are available, including our CAD Auto-Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools.
The system includes a high-resolution optics with a large depth-of-field and a long working distance. It can be mounted in any orientation.
VisionGauge® OnLine’s Remote Program Communications feature is also included, making it easy to interface with a robot or other part-positioning equipment. The software possesses extensive communication capabilities (e.g. TCP/IP communication via Ethernet, digital I/O’s, etc…) to issue commands, load programs, retrieve results, process errors and messages, etc.

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.
500 Series VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator Training Class
September 26th & 27th, 2017
(9 am to 4 pm on both days)
A VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator 500 Series training class will be held at VISIONx’s facility (Pointe-Claire, Canada) September 26th & 27th, 2017.
The class will start with a short refresher of VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator basics and will quickly move on to a review of the latest software enhancements and then onto more advanced topics, including automated programs.
This is a very hands-on class and – as always – we are very happy to look into the specific challenges of your real-world applications with you.
The training will be in English. There is no charge for current VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator users and lunch is provided on both days. Participants are responsible for their own travel, lodging and other expenses.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up, or if you have questions, want for information about nearby hotels, assistance with travel arrangements, etc…
Sign-up closes on September 8th at 5 pm (Eastern Time zone).
We’ll be at the Metal Storm 2017 on October 4-5th, 2017 at Methods Machine Tools in Sudbury, MA.
Come see the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator at the Meredith Machinery Grand Opening on May 17-18th, 2017 in Louisville, KY.
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.
