MMS AUGUST 2018 276 IMTS 2018 Inspection and Measuring Optical Instruments for Measuring Shafts, Cylindrical Parts Quality Vision International will display its TurnCheck family of precision optical instruments for measuring shafts and other cylindrical parts. Company-designed optics are fully telecentric with each element to elim- inate distortion. Supporting illumination consists of highly collimated, constant-wavelength light to eliminate a wrap-around effect found when lighting turned parts. The system is said to produce a crisp, uniformly illumi- nated and magnified image across the field of view with no edge effects or exclusion zones. The system is intended to provide accurate measure- ments despite vibration and temperature variation often found in shopfloor conditions. The system's software automatically optimizes lighting, focus and image tools. Simple controls, easy loading and unloading, and intelli- gent software tools enable fast setup time with no need for extensive operator training, the company says. Three model ranges are available to accommodate parts as long as 1,200 mm. | Quality Vision International (QVI) | East, Level 3, Booth 135602 and North, Level 3, Booth 236404 Automated Optical Comparator Can Check 99 Parts at Once Keyence's IM-7030T is the newest model in its Instant Measurement System series. The company describes this automated optical comparator as a fast and easy-to-use system that enables accurate measurement of parts with the push of a button. This model has six times the measurement volume of previous models and includes an automated drop indi- cator. The unit can identify as many as 99 dimensions in seconds and check as many as 99 parts at once. It enables users to check larger and taller parts than previous models. All systems include automated reporting that provides real-time information about manufacturing processes so that they can be adjusted in time to producing parts to specification. | Keyence Corp. | East, Level 3, Booth 135044
