Automatically in the best light
Automated optical measurement systems are gradually replacing manual instruments in production. Here, the optimal illumination also determines the test quality. The digital measuring projector ZEISS O-SELECT with an LED ring light from SCHOTT and transmitted light illustrates this.
Asmall gear only a few millimeters in size is lying on the glass measuring field. As part of a medical gear, it is designed to enable enormous operating speeds without experiencing a breakdown: up to 450 revolutions per second. This means its tooth widths and its diameter must be manufactured with precise accuracy to hundredths of a millimeter. Manual instruments and tedious measurements by hand no longer suffice for such demanding quality assurance and precise examination of such tiny dimensions and tolerances. Therefore, the manufacturer uses a measuring instrument that cannot only carry out sample measurements in a reproducible manner, but also delivers and documents results quickly and at your fingertips: the optical measuring system ZEISS O-SELECT.
Measurement at the press of a button: ZEISS O-SELECT automatically adjusts the correct distance between the camera and the workpiece, but also the right light, and displays the visual results on a monitor. Photo: Zeiss
