Microscope-Based Measuring System

Quick Scope, a microscope-based measuring system, is available in two configurations: the manual QS-E (economy) system and the CNC/manual (motor-driven) QS system. With their compact footprint design, each offers improvements in accuracy and throughput as compared to conventional microscope-based measuring when performing complex measurements for prototyping or lower volume batch work, the company says. Used for observation/measurement of single workpieces, the QS-E has a 6" (150 mm) Z-axis range and variable magnification (adjusted by changing objectives).

With their compact footprint design, each offers improvements in accuracy and throughput as compared to conventional microscope-based measuring when performing complex measurements for prototyping or lower volume batch work, the company says.

Used for observation/measurement of single workpieces, the QS-E has a 6" (150 mm) Z-axis range and variable magnification (adjusted by changing objectives). It comes standard with co-axial surface illumination and contour stage illumination while fiber optic ring lighting is an option.

Compared to a traditional microscope, the CNC-driven QS model can increase throughput, according to the company. For example, typical lead frames are measured in less than one-sixth the time and PCBs in about one-tenth the time. QSPAK software provides the system with zoom, auto focus, measurement playback, one-click edge detection, graphic display, 48 different macros and a pattern matching function for several common part features. X and Y stages can be controlled by a mouse or through the optional multifunction control box.
