There are a variety of ways to perform automated, high precision measurement, each with its own strengths. Contact measurement is more effective for measuring specific features—holes for example—to ensure that they are where they belong and of the correct shape and size.

The Quality Show, billed as the only trade show and conference focused exclusively on quality education, technology, equipment, and products, will take place October 24-26, 2017, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, and will include two keynote presentations, a host of educational sessions, an awards presentation ceremony, networking opportunities, and a bevy of exhibitions of the latest services and equipment the quality industry has to offer.
The ISO certification auditing process can be daunting, especially if the auditor is going to be evaluating your company’s gage management processes based on data housed in your Excel spreadsheets or hand-written documents and note cards stuffed in three-ring binders.
We frequently calibrate gages and instruments in the dimensional field for labs that primarily deal with electronic or other disciplines. This occurs when their customers try to cut corners by adding one or more dimensional items onto an order they have received for their normal work.
It is said that “necessity is the mother of invention.” It is an idiom that has been adopted from the more specific insight of Greek philosopher Plato. In Republic, Plato writes, “A need or problem encourages creative efforts to meet the need or solve the problem.”
Embedded vision is a term that means slightly different things to different people. When it comes to manufacturers using machine vision for automation and other applications, embedded vision generally refers to smart cameras or smart systems.
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an important technique in industrial environments. After all, machine vision makes it possible to reliably identify workpieces and products throughout the entire value chain based on printed or stamped characters.
The new standard in single-link interface speed, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE), enables users to take full advantage of the latest generation of high-performance sensors with their higher resolution, frame rates, bit depth and dynamic range.
The term machine vision can imply a computer having a set of eyes for an inspection. To develop a complete solution for machine vision applications, vision engineers execute a series of tasks that usually fall into five categories: plan, design, build, integrate, and validate.
FARO® introduced the new FARO® QuantumS FaroArm®. This introduction extends FARO value and performance in the manufacturing inspection process through performance and durability, enhanced ergonomics and extreme portability.
