Vision Engineering Launches New Capabilities With Swift PRO Series

Vision Engineering has announced the launch of the Swift PRO series, non-contact measurement systems designed to deliver fast and accurate 2 and 3-axis measurements. The Swift PRO series includes Swift PRO Duo, Swift PRO Cam and Swift PRO Elite.

Based on Vision Engineering’s best-selling Swift Family metrology products, the Swift PRO offers enhanced functionality and ease of use.  The new range is available with optical, video or both optical and video measurement capabilities. All optical systems are built using Vision Engineering’s patented, award winning, Dynascope technology, which gives operators an eyepiece-less and ergonomic viewing experience. The video systems are equipped with a high definition video camera and easy to use software. The Swift PRO is available with either an 8” x 4” (200mm x 100mm) or 6” x 4” (150mm x 100mm) measuring stage.

The new features built into the Swift PRO series include illumination enhancements, an integrated Z axis tape encoder, and a reduced number of system components and cabling.

Improvements to the illumination results in improved edge detection, especially for difficult to view components. The illumination of the Swift PRO series can now be controlled via the software and the addition of iris control to the sub-stage lighting provides even illumination across the field of view. The surface quadrant LED lighting is also controlled through the software. These key improvements give users greater control for both surface and sub-stage lighting, delivering superior edge detection especially for difficult components.

Every Swift PRO stand is 3-axis measurement ready for the easy addition of a Z axis encoder, which simply mounts into place through pre-drilled holes. This feature can be purchased as an upgrade kit for a Swift Pro system.

The overall design of the Swift PRO has been improved for ease of use.The power supply unit has the option for built-in Metlogix PCBs to support their M-Series software, eliminating the need for a separate Metlogix box.

“We are extremely excited to announce the Swift PRO. The features we now offer through the Swift Pro will provide users with advanced measurement capabilities while maintaining the simplicity and ease of use which made the Swift Family so successful”, comments Simon Cosham, Vision Engineering’s North American Metrology Manager.

Similar to the Swift Family, the Swift PRO series requires minimal training and can be used by shift workers or advanced users. Ease of use increases repeatability among users, reduces operator errors and makes reporting stress free.
