ITASCA, Ill., Dec. 15, 2011 — Keyence Corp. of America’s TM-3000 2-D optical micrometer introduces technological advancements to 100% automated high-speed, in-line or offline measurement and inspection applications. It combines the functionality of a laser scan micrometer, a machine vision system and an optical comparator into a single device. It is available in three sensor head sizes and enables use of two transmitter-receiver pairs simultaneously.
The micrometer employs a dual telecentric lens to create uniform collimated light with a green LED. A 2-D CMOS array then detects the light-to-dark transitions on the array to measure the dimensions. Certificates of traceability and calibration are available upon request. High speed and high precision are a result of subpixel processing only in the areas or points designated for measurement.
Because the system works in two dimensions, it can measure up to 16 points within the measurement area. A combination of 15 measurement modes and eight auxiliary modes can support measurements including but not limited to hole diameter, center pitch, intersection point, radius, width, angle, perpendicular distance and area.
The position correction function automatically orients the test part prior to measurement, increasing accuracy. All programming and monitoring can be performed with or without a PC.
