Advanced-Technology Dimensional Measuring System
Superior Joining Technologies, Inc. is excited to announce the recent addition of an Advanced-Technology Dimensional Measuring System to our metrology department. The integration of three different sensors in one system enables us to provide definitive verification of our products.
Video Measurement / Optical Comparator
The Optical sensor provides two complementary methods of measure. Video measurement is primarily used as an Optical Comparator for non-contact measurement applications.
The 10:1 Zoom Optics mode provides the highest-level resolution optical/video performance. It is specifically designed to measure smaller parts, with fine detail geometry with fully automated program capability for rapid throughput of larger part quantities.
Touch Trigger Probe
Single-point touch trigger probing adds versatility to our measurement capability. Using a touch trigger probe, we can measure intricate 2- or 3-dimensional features that are difficult to image, or surface boundaries that are inaccessible to video.
The DRS™ (Digital Range Sensor) Laser Probe provides non-contact, high resolution 3-dimensional surface contouring to supplement video measurements.
As one of the sensors in this multisensor measurement system, the metrology software integrates the DRS Laser data points as easily as those gathered by video measurement. Both linear and area scans are easily programmed into automatic measurement routines for accurate measurement of surface contours.
