QVI (Quality Vision International; Rochester, NY) unveiled its new Fusion 350 large field of view multisensor metrology system at IMTS 2018, Sept, 10-15, in Chicago.
QVI Fusion systems are measurement tools that combine a large field of view optical system with available touch probe, laser, and micro-sensors to produce a family of productive metrology systems. The new Fusion 350 is designed to characterize large parts or groups of small parts that primarily require two-dimensional measurement.
The heart of Fusion’s capability lies in its large field optical system, which allows high accuracy imaging of a wide area—up to 100 mm. QVI’s exclusive image analysis software tools can instantly process and identify all features and dimensions within the field of view, with no need for a pre-programmed measurement routine.
If a measurement routine has been prepared, Fusion’s AutoID feature allows placement of any previously programmed part or multiple parts anywhere on the stage, even without fixturing, and Fusion will identify the parts and automatically measure them.
Fusion 350 is ideal for high speed measurement of 2D parts. With its large 450 x 450 mm measuring area and flexible dual-magnification optics, it can easily accommodate large parts or groups of smaller parts, and measure both large and small feature sizes. AutoID and Feature Extraction identify and measure single or multiple parts instantly. DRS laser and TP20 touch-trigger probe are available options for precise three-axis measurements.
All Fusion models are equipped with QVI ZONE3 Express CAD-based 3D metrology software. ZONE3 features a clear, simple user interface, and its kinematic model simulates the machine, part, fixtures, and measuring sensors, updated in real time. Built-in productivity maximizing tools, integrated GD&T functionality, and visual validation of measurement intent offer speed and power to the measurement process. ZONE3 supports simultaneous use of multiple sensors, making appropriate tools available for complex measurement tasks.
