The screen on the IM800 is larger and features enhanced resolutionClick image to enlargeKeyence has enhanced its dimensional measurement system to deliver even greater speed, accuracy and ease of use.

The new IM-8000 now boasts a rotary unit, which allows for 360-degree measurement capability on both turned and machined parts. It’s also fitted with a 20-megapixel CMOS Sensor – plus a new algorithm for stable edge detection. Lastly, the screen is larger and features enhanced resolution.

In addition to standard measurements, such as OD/ID, length, and angle, the IM-8000 can perform a whole range of new measurements including symmetry, plane measurements, flatness, cylindricity, coaxiality, and run-out, all while delivering easy to read data visualizations, including roundness graphs. This makes it suitable for parts with complex geometries. Finally, the integrated probes can also measure features at specific heights or act as an automated height gauge.

Speed: Able to measure more than 300 dimensions per program, the system starts to measure automatically, as soon as the object is placed on the stage, which now moves at up to 80mm/s, significantly faster than most competitive systems. Highly precise dimensional measurements can now be achieved in as little as 1 second, allowing for even more rapid results. With a click of a button, up to 100 parts can be measured simultaneously, drastically reducing measurement time.

Accuracy: The high precision camera now boasts an accuracy of +/-2μm,  this camera and the wide field camera can be used together in a single program, for fast, accurate measurement.

Ease of Use:  Anyone, regardless of their experience, can operate this system, it only requires 2 steps: Place a component and Push a button. Measurement points are automatically identified, meaning consistent measurement results are obtained each time, regardless of the operator.

No positioning or fixture set-up is needed. Measurements can be rapidly set up with just a few clicks, and it is equally simple to set up virtual lines and points. All of the specified dimensions can then be measured at the touch of a button, with focus automatically adjusted.

Program files can be rapidly located on the system by placing the QR code from the inspection report on the stage. This ensures correct file selection even in the presence of multiple similar parts.
