SmartVision projector automates dimensional measurements – Metrology and Quality News

The new Smart Projector Quattro Pro, suitable for automated dimensional measurement tasks, has been added to the Smart Projector Series range of digital video measurement systems from SmartVision Metrology. The Smart Projector digital video measurement systems, available in twelve models, can automatically measure component dimensions using SmartVision’s optical and image processing technologies. By analyzing the image taken from a component, detecting the edges of features at high speed, both accurately, objectively and repeatedly, it is possible to quickly measure components with simple and complex features with up to at 16,000 checkpoints.

With the growing demand for precision mechanical and micromechanical components, as well as the increase in the number of electronic components in automotive industries, digital video measurement systems must measure more components at higher speed in automated production lines.

The Smart Projector Quattro Pro offers an innovative optical zoom solution. By changing the field of view via software, the machine allows for four different magnification solutions, making it ideal for small to medium sized components or for loading multiple components.

All models in the smart projector series are available with a wide range of dedicated accessories and hardware/software options, providing a choice of machines depending on the customer’s applications and installation environment. In addition, thanks to Smart_Automation_Suite (optional I/O module), multiple smart projector systems can be fully integrated into a production line, with real-time remote monitoring.

Multi-touch software control

User-friendly software offers extensive DXF overlay and FOV capability with Multi-Touch logic enabling one-touch feature measurements as well as versatile panning and zooming of the live video image and active part view increasing the efficiency of feature measurements, feature data manipulation, and reporting tasks with a simple pinch, pan, or double-click zoom.

Accurate measurement data

The smart projector performs objective, accurate and repeatable measurements in real time and quickly provides the result with a simple Pass (green) / Fail (red) semaphore output displayed on the screen, without any technical input, influence or interpretation from the user. operator, ensure full automatic assessment and reporting of all control activity data in compatible, print-ready Excel and PDF files with image.

Efficient industrial device

The intelligent projector is compact, robust, static, fanless, without moving parts and its protected analysis chamber prevents the influence of external light and dust. Specifically designed for use in any industrial environment with heavy duty cycles, it requires no recalibration, manual focus or collimation.
