Manual Rotational Capability Added to Inspection System

The Manual Rotary Stage from George Products is a full-featured, non-contact vision inspection system that simultaneously measures multiple dimensions on a part to an accuracy ±0.0001”. Working with a shadow (profile view) of the part, measurements are taken at a rate of 10× per second.

The Manual Rotary Stage from George Products is a full-featured, non-contact vision inspection system that simultaneously measures multiple dimensions on a part to an accuracy ±0.0001”. Working with a shadow (profile view) of the part, measurements are taken at a rate of 10× per second. Just as fast as a user can place a part into the OASIS, every measurement on that part is instantly compared with dimensional tolerances and reports pass, warn or fail, the company says.
With the addition of the manual rotary stage, parts can be rotated a full 360-degrees to get profile images and measurements from every aspect of the part. Of course, all of these measurements are taken in real-time as the part rotates within the field of view.
 
The existing OASIS software works with the manual rotary stage and, as with all measurements, dimensions are displayed in real-time with a traffic light color-coded display panel to easily see the status of all dimensions. The part can be rotated on the stage and data collected at user-defined increments, allowing the operator to view the measurements and status display panel as they turn the part.
 
By adding the manual rotary stage to the inspection machine, inspectors can ensure their parts are within specification limits all the way around. Rotating the part adds the ability to check additional features such as roundness and concentricity and allows for proper alignment of hex and square features on parts as well as alignment of through-holes without the need for special fixturing. Data is recorded with the built-in inspection report or can be automatically imported into any SPC program.
