Product News: Video Measuring Machine and Stereo Inspection Solutions

Falcon video measuring solution with CNC option and Mantis Elite-Cam inspection system with “eyepieceless” viewing head.

(Vision Engineering: New Milford, CT) -- Vision Engineering will be showcasing their new and exciting products at MACH 2010, June 7–11, in Birmingham, United Kingdom, including the new Falcon video measuring solution with computer numeric controlled (CNC) option, and the Mantis Elite-Cam—an award winning stereo inspection system with “eyepieceless” viewing head—now with a built-in camera for digital image capture, and on-screen measurement software.

The new Falcon video measuring solution with CNC is a powerful yet compact machine with CAD import and export facility and advanced data analysis including PC software integration. It is ideal for a wide range of measuring applications including three-axis measurement of precision-machined component parts. With touch-screen technology, the Falcon can be programmed easily and quickly to enable accurate, repeatable, and reproducible measurements in microns; and the CNC capability allows users to benefit from an automated measurement facility. Also benefitting from calibrated stages, quadrant LED illumination, and progressive motorized z-axis, the Falcon 5000 with CNC is a valuable and capable machine to have in any quality control department.

New in Vision Engineering’s latest range of stereo inspection systems, the Mantis Elite-Cam with on-screen measurement, has just been introduced and is proving to be a popular solution for engineers requiring accurate, instantaneous results. With superior optics and a high-resolution viewing head, components can be inspected, reworked, digitally captured, and now measured on screen within minutes.

To see the full range of inspection and measurement solutions, visit Vision Engineering’s stand No. 5638 at MACH 2010.
