Large Format Multi-Sensor Vision System
The L.S. Starrett Company, a global manufacturer of precision hand tools and gages, metrology systems and more, has introduced the new AVX550 Multi-Sensor Vision System equipped with dual optical systems and touch-probe capability to measure parts with a diverse range of feature sizes and geometries. The Large Format AVX550 System can be equipped with two cameras and lenses to be used sequentially in the same program along with touch probe options, making this system one of the most versatile multi-sensor platforms available today. For accuracy, durability and stability, including under demanding requirements, the system features a granite base and bridge design.

The new Starrett AVX550 Multi-Sensor System features dual optical systems that work in tandem to measure a broad range of features. The primary zoom lens enables small intricate features to be inspected with high precision and resolution of up to 2 microns. A secondary large field-of-view camera is equipped with a telecentric lens that can simultaneously inspect large areas of a part, or an entire part itself.

Equipped with the M3 software package from Met- Logix, a traditional mouse as well as a touchscreen monitor makes user interaction easy and intuitive. Auto part recognition enables creating a part measurement program that comprises the desired features of a part for inspection, which can automatically be saved in the system or to a network. Programmable light output options can be built into the program as defined steps, including being called up as the part recognition program initiates.

For fast, accurate and repeatable results, once the program is created, placing that part within the camera’s field-of-view allows for the saved program to initiate and run the inspection. Features such as a “Superimage” function allows piecing together multiple camera frames in order to view a large part as one single image. A Renishaw Touch Probe may also be utilized for quick acquisition of discreet points along a part’s profile and 3-D geometry mapping.
