MMS AUGUST 2018 280 IMTS 2018 Inspection and Measuring machine's workstage. Also shown will be the AVR300 automatic vision system that is designed for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files. It features both zoom optics and interchangeable telecentric lenses for micron-level resolution and accurate field-of-view measurements. Other exhibits of note include the model No. HE400, a compact benchtop optical comparator with a 16" screen, and two horizontal digital video comparators that com- bine vision and optical comparator technology. The products feature a custom-designed interchangeable lens mounting system, go/no-go digital overlay capa- bility directly from part CAD files, and real-time video edge detection. In addition, the company's entry-level L1 computer-based force testing products are designed for production and quality control testing and are said to be easy to set up, operate and maintain. They perform a range of testing including load, limit and break testing, and cyclic count testing. | The L. S. Starrett Co. | East, Level 3, Booth 135532 Roughness, Contour Measuring Devices Improve Speed Jenoptik's Waveline W800 series of roughness and contour measuring devices includes four configurations. A 120-mm traverse unit and a 500-mm vertical measur- ing column are included on basic configurations. The new models have an axis travel speed six times faster than previous models. Approximately 30 percent more ambient noise can be filtered from results compared to existing models. The series offers a probing system for a variety of measuring tasks in the measuring room, including manual or semi-automated measuring pro- cesses. The probing systems can be exchanged using a magnetic quick-change adapter for flexibility in daily measurement routines. Measuring station components are modular and can be expanded later or integrated into existing measuring systems. The company's measuring instruments include models that work in multiple measurement runs as well as models that measure in a single probe step. Mobile and stationary systems for simple or complex measur- ing tasks are available. | Jenoptik Automotive North America LLC East, Level 3, Booth 135536 Machine-Vision System Uses Shadows for Instant Measurement Oasis Inspection Systems offers a machine vision system that cre- ates a shadow of a small part, and then measures every dimension on that image at the same time. It achieves a repeatable accuracy of ±0.0001", according to the company. Measurements are compared against process control limits and tolerances, with an immediate visual display of whether dimensions are good, bad or at a warning level. This data can be exported to a user's software program for statistical process control, saved on the system's onboard computer or imported into an Excel inspection report. The Oasis is designed for use on the shop floor near the machines that are producing the parts for effective feedback. | Oasis Inspection Systems | East, Level 3, Booth 135521
