New Field of View video measurement system

Jon Lawson

Vision Engineering has announced the availability of its brand new class of TVM Field of View (FOV) video measurement systems. 

The TVM series includes TVM20 and TVM35, with FOV sizes of 20mm and 35mm respectively. Both systems are designed to meet quality assurance applications in electronics, automotive, aerospace, medical and plastics manufacturing: offering rapid, non-contact measurement. 
Cylindrical, flat or square components can be instantly measured on the shop floor, offering instant go/no go evaluation. As with other measurement and inspection systems from Vision Engineering, the TVM systems can be configured to suit specific applications. The fixed stage FOV system enables instant, accurate measurements of small pressed metal components, turned parts, injection moulded plastics, tubes and cables, while the addition of a manually-controlled stage extends measurement for larger components up to 200mm x 100mm.
The combination of TVM’s flat field telecentric lens and collimated sub-stage lighting, featuring a new quadrant LED ring light, creates a sharp image of components on the HD monitor and significantly improves video edge detection of complex parts such as threads and valves. TVM works in combination with new software features for instant measurement of wire insulation and screw threads.
