Werth Messtechnik at Metav Measuring entire workpieces at the push of a button
Metrology – Capturing an entire workpiece in one image ensures easy operation and short measurement times.
For smaller workpieces, the measuring machine acts like a classical profile projector and uses the field of view of the optics as the measurement range. Werth has implemented this principle for various measurement ranges in the classic Quick-Inspect machines, the exhibitor says. For larger measurement ranges, the resolution and thus the precision of measurement is limited by the number and size of pixels.
For greater requirements of the measurement range, resolution, and measurement uncertainty, the same ease of operation is implemented with the new Quick-Inspect MT with measurement "in the image", the company explains. To do so, the machine raster scans workpieces in seconds "on the fly" at the push of a button. This produces high-resolution images with nearly any number of pixels and high precision (patent). Even especially small or high-precision features on larger objects (up to 250 mm length as standard) can be visualized and accurately measured. In automatic mode, the measured object is detected fully automatically after raster scanning and the matching CNC measurement program is started. To ensure comparability to conventional coordinate measuring machines, the machines are specified to ISO 10360 and VDI/VDE 2617 and are traceable to the length standard of the German National Metrology Institute.
