April 23, 2012 – GLOBE NEWSWIRE — Hexagon Metrology released the Optiv Classic 321GL tp benchtop vision-measuring metrology system for the North American market. It suits electronics and precision parts inspection, including micro-holes, fiber optics, filters, and more.
It features 6.5x motorized CNC zoom optics for 0.002mm accuracy. Touch probes can be added for multi-sensor measurement. The Classic 321GL tp is the smallest model in the Optiv product line. It offers calibrated lighting, a high-resolution color CCD camera, a laser locator and an 8-segment LED dual angle ring light. The LED ring and software controls for red/green/blue sensitivity enable better edge detection, including for colored parts where edges can be difficult to capture.
The Classic 321GL tp includes PC-DMIS Vision image processing software and full online 3D CAD capabilities for live programming of the machine to compare measured values to nominals. The software’s MultiCapture feature finds all 2D characteristics in the field of view, measures them simultaneously, and moves the camera for the next cluster, optimizing the path of stage movement. Inspection speeds can increase by 50% or more.
The tool is made on a granite base with mechanical bearings.
