Micro-Vu Corp. has introduced its new Sol Vision System, a measurement system that bridges the gap between manual video machines and automated multisensor CMMs. The Sol is primarily used for dimensional measurement and inspection of medical devices, precision-machined parts, precision plastics, electronics, liquid crystal display, and solar applications.
The Sol Vision System implements new technologies to increase speed and accuracy on a reliable and affordable measuring machine. It’s manually operated 160 mm × 160 mm × 160 mm stage with a motorized zoom lens is combined with the proprietary edge detection technology of InSpec Metrology Software. The Sol features a programmable 19.5x zoom, programmable multisegment lighting, 6.5x optical magnification, 3x digital magnification, nonlinear calibration of the stage, nonlinear calibration of the optics, lights calibration, and part programming compatibility.
InSpec Metrology Software allows an operator to easily control zoom and light zoom settings as well as the placement and size of vision tools. Vision tools are faster, more accurate, and easier to use than the manual selection of points. InSpec includes standard and advanced geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Reports of measurements are created automatically while the “Log View” displays a succinct list of features that are in and out of tolerance. Micro-Vu’s InSpec Metrology Software is the result of 20 years of customer input and software development.
The Sol uses a digital, high-resolution color camera. Live video images and measurement data can be easily captured and transmitted. The intuitive interface provides click-and-drag control of full, ring, sector, and segment lighting to enhance difficult-to-see features on customer parts.
