Nanovea profilometer offers online inspection
3D non-contact profilometer
Nanovea has announced that its 3D non-contact profilometer will now have optional online capability for automated inspection and report generation.
With this advancement, the company said the profilometer can now integrate into quality control environments.
Crucial applications once inspected with vision and/or touch probe will now be inspected with the assurance of high-speed, non-contact nanometer measurement.
Nanovea said this is especially critical to batch production with tight tolerance levels that can be easily monitored to ensure quality control via online communication.
With this feature, applications can be automatically scanned and analysed based on instructions found on a server database.
The online inspection feature allows automatic product ID scan with a barcode reader (could also be manually entered in); the product ID is then checked against predefined pass/fail and measurement requirements stored on a company database.
The part is automatically measured, and upon completion a report is generated.
The report and the pass/fail information is automatically sent back to the server and stored with that part number.
Measurement speeds range from 1m/s and 31,000 points/sec with nanometer accuracies.
There are various scan types, analysis functions and size options that can be customised to fit applications throughout all industries.
This video highlights the capabilities of Scancontrol. Laser scanners in the Scancontrol series are said to be among the highest-performing profile sensors available with respect to accuracy and measuring rate.
The EddyNCDT 3300 eddy-current measuring system from Micro-Epsilon is said to be one of the most powerful displacement measurement systems available.
Optoelectronic sensors in the OptoNCDT ILR series from Micro-Epsilon are designed for non-contact displacement, distance and speed measurement.
The SR series displacement transducer from Sensonics consists of a magnetically shielded LVDT contained within the outer stainless steel body.
The OptoNCDT range from Micro-Epsilon is said to represent the highest precision in laser-based optical displacement and position measurement.
