Optical Coordinate Measuring Machine for Quality Control

Jan. 31, 2012
Boulder Imaging, Inc., a leading imaging solutions company for machine vision applications, is releasing a new version of its Benchmark in- or off-line optical coordinate measuring machine (CMM).
The Benchmark in-lin or off-line optical coordinate measuring machine (CMM) provides precise micron-level part measurement and conformance to specification for virtually any part or material in real-time. The unit reportedly delivers repeatable accuracy inspecting to less than a thousandth of an inch, and inspection speed beyond current CMM and laser-based measurement systems. It can be used for quality control, first article inspection, spot inspection to ensure continued adherence to specification throughout production runs, total quality management (TQM) compliance, ISO compliance, statistical process control, reverse engineering and measurement of 100% of parts. A new reporting feature lets detailed reports be generated and exported to a variety of formats (including PDF, Word, Excel, and others). New statistics feature creates graphical trending plots of metrology data to analyze historical data for parts audit, financial impact and overall performance measurement.
The unit evaluates any number of tolerance-critical leading and trailing edges and instantly identifies features that are out of specifications. Production measurement tasks requiring numerous gauges in multiple locations, manual inspection equipment, and a lot of time are eliminated.
