VisionGauge Digital Optical Comparator Featured Software Tools

The VisionGauge® OnLine software drives the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator. This powerful machine vision software for automated inspection, verification, and data collection includes state-of-the-art vision tools for defect detection, pattern matching, automated measurement, optical character recognition, blob analysis, and much more. VisionGauge® OnLine features exclusive tools for use with our VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators, many of which are listed below.

Patented CAD Auto-Align™ - Automatic CAD Overlay Alignment

The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator's CAD Auto-Align™ tool automatically aligns the CAD data to the part.


The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator’s ground-breaking CAD Auto-Align™ tool automatically aligns the CAD data to the part, drastically reducing inspection times and obtaining increased accuracy.

Patented CAD Auto Pass/Fail™ - Automatic Pass/Fail Results

The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator's patented CAD Auto Pass/Fail™ tool allows you to automatically determine, very accurately and in real-time, if a part is within tolerance.


The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator’s patented CAD Auto Pass/Fail™ tool accurately computes and displays, in real time, a part's deviation from nominal, to automatically determine with a Pass/Fail result if a part is within tolerance.

VisionGauge®’s Patent Pending “Tooth Checker™” Tool

Bone screw teeth verification with the VisionGauge® “Tooth Checker™” tool


VisionGauge®’s powerful and innovative new patented “Tooth Checker™” tool automatically locates, to very high accuracy, the crests and / or roots of  a part's teeth or threads and determines if they are within their tolerance band.

Advanced Auto-Pass/Fail Analysis & Report Tools

CAD Auto-Pass/Fail Entity Cross Section Analysis on a Fir Tree InspectionVisionGauge®'s Advanced Auto-Pass/Fail Analysis and Report tools allow operators to easily review, explore, and label CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ results at each cross section of interest in the field-of-view.

Specifying Tolerances for CAD Overlay Tools

CAD Auto-Pass/Fail inspection on a condyle implant


VisionGauge® OnLine has an easy and intuitive interface for specifying tolerances on CAD overlay files used with the CAD Auto-Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools. You can also read-in tolerances directly from the CAD file. Multiple tolerance types are supported with different display options.

True Position Measurements (Position Tolerance)

True Position measurement of a cylindrical feature inspected using Cartesian basic dimensions


Easily define features with datums, then automatically determine if the Actual occurrence of a feature falls within the Nominal's allowable tolerance zone with VisionGauge® OnLine's True Position measurement tool (Position Tolerance).

VisionGauge® Edge Break Measurement Tool

Automated edge break measurements

VisionGauge®'s Edge Break Measurement tool automatically locates to high-accuracy, the edge breaks of lines - including sharp, rounded, and chamfered edges. Lines are automatically calculated at any orientation and there are no limitations to the angle at which the edges meet.

Thread Inspection and Measurement Tools

Thread measurements with VisionGauge®

The new VisionGauge® Thread Inspection and Measurement tools are designed to meet strict quality inspection requirements with automatic measurements on various types of parts with threads, extremely quickly and to high accuracy.

Pattern Matching Tools

pattern matching tools - sample

VisionGauge® includes powerful pattern matching tools useful in solving a wide range of applications. These robust tools can quickly and accurately identify and locate objects and features without limitations.

Remote Program Communications for Quality Inspection in Cell Automation

Direct machinery robotic interface for visual inspection with VisionGauge
