Digital Measurement System Features Simple Operation

QVI Snap digital measurement systems are now equipped with Snap 2.0 metrology software, designed to improve user accessibility and ease of use.

QVI Snap digital measurement systems, offered by RAM division of Quality Vision International, are now equipped with Snap 2.0 metrology software, designed to improve user accessibility and ease of use. The software’s mode selector features three modes of operation.

Measure Mode allows quick caliper-type measurements of one or more parts. The operator places a part on the stage and presses the “Go” button. Feature Extraction automatically identifies the part and measures and reports its features, including circles, arcs, lines, widths and angles.

Program Mode permits manual creation of a new measurement routine, editing of a saved routine, or creation of a new routine from CAD.

Run Mode features a simplified user interface that allows operators to run existing routines. It is useful for those performing repetitive inspection tasks. An administrator can password-lock this or any mode to ensure that measurement functions are performed only by authorized personnel.
