Image Dimension Measuring System
Apr 2010KEYENCE Corp. of AmericaRequest Info
Keyence Corp. of America’s IM-6000 series image dimension
measurement system includes pattern registration and pattern search functions that
enable “place and press” measurement. The devices eliminate the need
for optical comparators, X-Y stages for part positioning, computer numerical control
measuring devices, and measuring and stereomicroscopes. The user places parts on
the sample tray and pushes the measurement button. Careful positioning is not necessary.
The “intelligent pattern analysis search system” quickly locates, identifies
and measures parts placed anywhere within the unit’s 100-mm field of view.
The “part evaluation library” stores the images, measurement functions
and specifications of parts and provides automatic pattern search, part recognition
and measurement without setup the next time inspection of the same parts is performed.
The system performs up to 99 distinct measurements, including angle, radius, inner/outer
diameter, and circular and linear pitch.
