Comprehensive Inspection of Round Parts

The O-Inspect multi-sensor measuring machine from Carl Zeiss allows the easy, accurate and thus efficient inspection of small and complex parts, the company says.

The O-Inspect multi-sensor measuring machine from Carl Zeiss allows the easy, accurate and thus efficient inspection of small and complex parts, the company says. It can be used in the electronics and plastics industries, for medical and automotive technology and precision engineering.

A rotary table is now available for the measuring machine as well. The rotary table, developed specially for this machine, can be mounted and removed by the measuring machine operator. The rotary table can be positioned both horizontally and vertically for added benefit. In particular, it enhances the effectiveness of the measurement of round parts, which no longer have to be reclamped for optical measurement, the company says. Simple stylus systems are sufficient for contact measurement.

The rotary table enables users to quickly and completely inspect parts, the company says. Mechanical influences are minimized, as the measuring axes of the CMM are only subject to minimal movement with the rotary table.
Thanks to the multiple sensors on the machine, operators can alternate between optical and contact measurements in one measuring run. Optical measurements are performed using the 2D camera sensor with the image processing function contained in the Discovery zoom lens while contact measurements are the domain of the VAST XXT scanning probe.
