Zumbach Electronics Corp. has introduced its Profilemaster in-line vision system for the continuous measurement of critical dimensions during profile production.
The noncontact, modular system is suitable for monitoring one or more critical dimensions during production to help ensure continuous product quality while also monitoring machine performance. Continuous measurement alerts the operator should a critical dimension begin to drift out of tolerance.
A product recipe library allows the user to tailor the system to a range of profile shapes and sizes. User-selected product dimensions are monitored and displayed including segment height, width, distance, angles, arc radii, and diameters. Measurement accuracy is independent of material, texture, color, or density.
The system is suitable for profiles or profile segments to 4.0 in. and delivers measurement repeatability of &plunmn; 0.0002 to 0.0004 in.
