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.
The optoNCDT 1700LL laser triangulation displacement sensors are designed for measurements on shiny and rough surfaces where high accuracy is required.
The ILR1030/1031 laser distance sensors from Micro-Epsilon operate according to time-of-flight technology.
The 820-2 LED stroboscope from Fluke is a rugged, compact and easy-to-use tool for investigating and observing potential mechanism failure on a variety of machinery without making physical contact with the machine. It is said to be ideal for stop-motion diagnostics and mechanical troubleshooting.
The optoNCDT 1700BL blue laser triangulation sensor from Micro-Epsilon is suitable for use when measuring metals — particularly red, glowing metals.
Aerotech has introduced the AGV-HPO high-accuracy, open-frame, thermally stable galvo scanner, which provides resolution of more than 24 bits when used with the company’s Nmark CLS controller. It is suitable for complex, high-density laser machining and high-throughput applications.
