Optical Gaging Products (OGP®), a world-leading manufacturer of precision multisensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, announces a technological breakthrough in value-class video comparator systems: The Automatic Three-Position Lens Changer, available on c-vision™ Lite Video Contour Projectors®.
This CNC lens turret allows for nine automatic, programmable magnification changes – 3 optical and 6 digital – within a CNC program. The system is both parfocal and parcentral – parts on the stage stay in focus and stay centered when magnification and focal length is changed.
Three internal lenses offer 2-inch, 1-inch, and half-inch fields of view – permanently mounted in a shop-hardened motorized turret.
“Before this innovation, operators were required to manually unscrew a lens, attempt to safely store the lens, screw in a new lens, and recalibrate – a very timely task that could never be done in the middle of a program” said Tim Fantauzzo, OGP Vice President of North American Sales. “The innovative c-vision Lite lens turret system allows for these changes automatically, and as part of a CNC program, resulting in far faster, and more accurate measurement results – tying together small part feature details with larger overall part measurements.”
c-vision Lite systems are a part of the c-vision family of Video Contour Projectors from OGP – the value-class c-vision Lite, the capable c-vision Benchtop, and the heavy-duty c-vision Floor Model. c-vision systems combine the speed and accuracy of a video measurement system with the rugged capacity of an optical comparator, to create the world’s best shop-floor measuring tools for 2D measurement.
