Vision Engineering presented a new class of measuring system at the recent Control Exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany. The TVM Field of View (FOV) video measurement systems mark the beginning of a new era for fast and flexible shop floor measurement. From the combination of advanced optical design and simple yet powerful software, comes a competent metrology system that can measure components of any shape with versatile measurement tools that cater to the needs of operators on the shop-floor.
The system’s small footprint saves space in the workshop or laboratory, while TVM’s ease of use eliminates operator errors and significantly reduces measurement time, providing a valuable asset for a wide range of quality assurance applications, such as instant go/no go assessments.
With TVM, there is no need to position the part, or even adjust the focus – just place the part within the field of view, and then run the program. Hundreds of measurements are taken (within the field of view) in seconds. TVM is ideal for customers who require the fastest, simplest way to
The TVM series utilizes flat field telecentric optics and illumination to create a sharp image of the component on its HD monitor. The telecentric lens provides a completely flat image, across the full field of view, without any curvature, or distortion and improves the video edge detection capability on complex parts significantly. Exceptionally large depth of field means the part is always in focus regardless of height differences. The availability of a moving stage also makes it possible to measure components larger than the field of view.
The TVM is offered in two models: TVM20 and TVM35 with field of view of 20mm and 35mm.
The TVM series come with M3 measurement software with a rich suite of features as well as simple data import/export and reporting capabilities.
