μVisionStation™ - Vision Inspection Workstation

μVs-MH - Multiple Hole Diameter

This machine vision inspection workstation is ideal for performing 100% Quality Control inspection of manufacturing parts with multiple holes. Upon manually loading the part onto the sliding shuttle table, the vision system performs simultaneous inspections with multiple cameras of the manufactured part to provide high precision measurement. The measurement results are immediately shown on the adjacent GUI display and the part is unloaded from the workstation. All this is done within short cycle time. Multiple Hole Diameter Gauging workstation is a cost effective alternative to the co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). Whereas the CMM is useful for random and infrequent sampling, this workstation is capable of inline 100% inspection and is user friendly. The operator can be quickly trained and the learning curve is not steep.

Features and Benefits:

  • Small machine footprint, (1.2m width x 0.8m deep x 2.1m high.) is ideal for small work envelope
  • Suitable for inspection parts up to 5kg, 30cm x 30cm
  • Short payback period due to lower initial cost
  • Customized and easy to use GUI
  • Customized fixture for Inspection part handling module
  • Quick on site commissioning
  • Inspection results Output to Ethernet
  • Remote monitoring system support available

Performance:

  • Short cycle time
  • Measurement tolerance up to 20 microns (0.02 mm)
  • 10% Gage Repeatable and Reproduceable R & R
  • I.D./O.D. and chamfers measurement
  • Assess presence and alignment for multiple holes
  • Option: Defect inspection of threaded holes for burrs, double threads, etc.
