Illuminating the Objective of Vision Measurement

The way a vision system detects and collects data points can be a mystery to some.  A vision system is a non-contact, non-destructive method for dimensional measurement and has the ability to “see” the features of interest vs. tactile measurement methods.  The vision probe converts an image to a digital signal via a CCD camera and a frame grabber.  This method allows vision machines to perform programmatic edge detection, auto focusing and pattern recognition.

During this webinar we will go over topics including the benefits of gray-scale measurement, high-resolution measurement and the composite coordinate system.

Common Mistakes in Dimensional Calibration Methods

Description: Mitutoyo America Corporation has a long history of providing world-class calibration services as well as premier educational instruction in calibration methods and techniques. This presentation is based on some of the key issues that have been observed in our popular Hands-On Gage Calibration course over the years. Calibration is all about maintaining quality and establishing traceability for measuring equipment. To achieve these goals, calibration must be a well-engineered search for errors. Economic realities limit the amount of time and testing in calibration, and therefore methods must be chosen wisely to provide the most information with the least amount of work. This presentation leverages the excellent American national standards available in dimensional metrology – the B89 series of standards developed under the auspices of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (www.asme.org).
