Video Measuring

Video Measuring Machines are specifically designed for non-contact measurement and inspection of intricate features on small or large parts.  These systems are ideal for quality assurance, inspection labs, manufacturing, assembly and research facilities. A precision mechanical bearing X-Y-Z stage and column translates data accurately and repeatably to operating system software. Video measuring systems are a natural step up from measuring microscopes and optical comparators. These systems may be configured with measurement software or metrology specific DROs.

Starrett MV300 Video Measuring System

The Starrett MV 300 system is a general-purpose manually driven video based measurement system, ideal for quality assurance, inspection labs, manufacturing, assembly and research facilities.

A precision mechanical bearing X-Y-Z stage and column, combined with Heidenhain scales, translates data accurately and repeatedly to the user friendly Metlogix M3 software, which is all stored and viewed on neat and compact all-in-one touch screen PC.

AV300 CNC Vision System

The AV300 CNC vision system offers 12" x 6" x 5.5" travel, Z-axis measuring, your choice of powerful MetLogix or Quadra-Check software control systems, 6.5:1 (optional 12:1) zoom optics and several LED or fiber optic illumination options. These systems are general-purpose CNC video-based measurement systems. Throughput is maximized with either QC5000 or Metlogix M3 software controlling all aspects of Video Edge Detection (VED) and multiple channel Fiber Optic or LED illumination. Available with an all-in-one touchscreen PC with MetLogix M3 DXF/FOV/CNC software, or with a desktop PC with an external monitor and QC5000 software. The M3 software supports 2D geometrical constructs (lines, angles, circles), while the QC5000 software also supports 3D constructs (inclined planes, cones, spheres). Starrett automatic vision (AV) systems are ideal for quality assurance, parts inspection, and production runs. Flexible and powerful the AV series allows users to cost effectively achieve maximum throughput of their inspection process, allowing measured data to be effectively archived or networked to other devices. Also see our multi-sensor metrology systems, which can provide vision metrology operation with travel up to 50" x 36" x 8" (1270 x 915 x 200 mm).

AVR300 CNC Vision System

The Starrett AVR Series CNC automatic vision metrology systems are ideal for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files. They are available with dedicated 6.5:1 or 12:1 zoom optics or a quick-change bayonet lens mount which accepts a choice of six interchangeable telecentric lenses for micron-level resolution and optical distortion down to 0.001% for accurate field-of-view (FOV) measurements. The FOV can encompass an entire small part up to 2.00 x 1.50" or a feature of a larger part and be seamlessly integrated with stage motion to measure parts with a length up to 8" (AVR200) or 12" (AVR300). Systems are also touch probe compatible. AVR Series hardware features include a granite base for maximum stability, recirculating ball linear guides for smooth and precise stage motion, and full CNC control for high throughput. All electronics other than the PC are housed in the Z-column, ensuring an integrated system with minimal external wiring.
