L.S. Starrett Co.'s AVX550 Multi-Sensor Vision System is equipped with the M3 software package from MetLogixClick image to enlargeDual optical systems and touch-probe capability help the AVX550 Multi-Sensor Vision System from L.S. Starrett Co., measure parts with a diverse range of feature sizes and geometries.

The large format AVX550 system can be equipped with two cameras and lenses to be used sequentially in the same program along with touch probe options.

For accuracy, durability and stability under demanding requirements, it features a granite base and bridge design.

The primary zoom lens enables intricate features to be inspected with high precision and resolution of up to two microns. A secondary large field-of-view camera is equipped with a telecentric lens that can simultaneously inspect large areas of a part, or an entire part itself.

A broad range of zoom options makes custom measurement configurations easy and eliminates the need to change lenses or re-calibrate the system.

Throughput is further enhanced with fast platform travel speeds and dual collimated profile lights which are essential to the effectiveness of the dual optical systems.

Equipped with the M3 software package from MetLogix, a traditional mouse as well as a touchscreen monitor makes user interaction easy and intuitive.

Auto part recognition enables a part measurement program that comprises the desired features of a part for inspection, which can automatically be saved in the system or to a network.

Features such as a “Superimage” function allows piecing together multiple camera frames to view a large part as one single image. A Renishaw Touch Probe may also be utilized for quick acquisition of discreet points along a part’s profile and 3-D geometry mapping.
