Adapted Workholding

A customized workholding developed to complete a VisionGauge Digital Optical Comparator application

VISIONx, Inc. is capable of designing customized fixtures and workholding adapted specifically for an application. We have supplied numerous adapted precision pneumatic, vacuum, and manually-operated features with our systems to successfully solve difficult applications.

Automatic True Position Measurement of a Cylindrical Feature

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

In this example, the hole’s nominal center point is defined precisely at 60 degrees clockwise on a radius of .750 inches centered about the part’s center hole. The actual center of the hole is located, and the software automatically computes the True Position of the feature and reports a Pass/Fail result based on the diametric tolerance zone defined.

True Position Measurement – Cylindrical Feature, Cartesian Coordinates

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

In this example, the hole’s nominal center point is defined precisely 1.250 inches vertically and horizontally from the corner of the part. The actual center of the hole is located, and the software automatically computes the True Position of the feature and reports a Pass/Fail result based on the diametric tolerance zone defined.

True Position measurement of a non-circular feature

True Position of a non-circular feature inspected using Polar basic dimensions

In this example, the nominal centerline is defined precisely at 45 degrees clockwise and centered about the part’s center hole. The actual centerline of both teeth on the spline is located, and the software automatically computes the True Position of the feature and reports a Pass/Fail result based on the tolerance zone defined (equidistant and parallel to the nominal centerline).

BoneScrew-Tooth-Checker

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

Bone screw teeth can be automatically verified against specs with the VisionGauge® “Tooth Checker™” tool. This 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…

VisionGauge® Tooth Checker Nomenclature

VisionGauge Tooth Checker Nomenclature

VisionGauge®’s Patent Pending “Tooth Checker™” tool is specially adapted to check parts with teeth. Using the crest & root points that the Tooth Checker tool has found, it can then automatically determine all other part characteristics, including minor and major diameter, pitch, and thread depth.

This tool is perfect for quickly and accurately verifying and inspection bone screws, medical rasps, gears, fluted instrument, threads and fittings, etc.
