What Is a Video Inspection Measurement System?

A computerized video measuring system inspects live images of manufactured parts, often using a computer-aided design (CAD) file as a reference. Older systems may have required extra physical components like templates and overlays. Using digitized CAD data directly eliminates the need for those resources. When comparing a part to its design specifications, performing measurements, performing defect detection, etc., the system collects data and may generate a Pass/Fail result. Manufacturers use that information to conduct quality control processes.

Controlling the quality of the parts you produce is crucial. Modern measurement devices are faster, more powerful, and more accurate than traditional models. The efficiency and reduction of operator errors associated with using modern video inspection equipment outweigh the cost of a video measuring system.

The VisionGauge® Standalone Inspection and Measurement System is a versatile solution for your automation and inspection needs. Precise and convenient, the standalone model serves as a drop-in device for robot-controlled, automated cells. Combined with ease of installation, this system can solve a vast array of of applications and works well for general purpose inspections.
