Extrusion Inspection and Measurement

VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators are the perfect solution for the inspection and measurement of extrusions

  • Automatically compare difficult-to-inspect extrusions against their CAD data (no more overlays!)
  • The system has no limitations as to part geometry.
  • The system's proprietary CAD-Auto-Align™ tool automatically lines up the CAD to the part, along one or multiple datums
    or by doing an overall "best fit".
  • The system's proprietary CAD-Auto-Pass/Fail™ tool automatically produces an operator-independent PASS/FAIL result.
  • The system works equally well on both fixtured and unfixtured parts.
  • Demonstrated accurate, repeatable and operator-independent results, directly on the shop floor!
  • The system supports both uniform and variable tolerances. You can apply tighter tolerances in critical areas and looser
    tolerances elsewhere.
  • Automatically measure and display deviations from nominal and quickly identify out-of-tolerance areas.
  • Automatically collect measurements, statistics, images and other data for complete documentation
  • Much faster than traditional approaches and completely eliminates operator subjectivity!
  • The system is extremely to use: it can be setup so that - for the operator - everything is done using the barcode reader.
  • The system is perfectly suited to overcome the difficult challenges of extrusion inspection.

Front (reflected) illumination allows you to clearly see internal and surface features, along with the part's outer profile. The system also has a broad set of high-accuracy measurement tools.
