The Zeiss O-Inspect multi-sensor measuring machine is becoming more customizable and provides more flexibility for a range of applications.

The Zeiss O-Inspect multi-sensor measuring machine is becoming more customizable and provides more flexibility for a range of applications. Thanks to the new additions to the line, users now have a better selection of machine sizes, configurations and options.

Anyone on the search for a contact-optical measuring machine will now be able to choose from several sizes, load capacities and contact probes. The O-Inspect can be used for a range of activities, including the measurement of dental implants, tiny vehicle parts and sensitive smartphone components. For workpieces that are either too small or delicate, or when large quantities have to be measured, users can simply switch on the O-Inspect camera sensor. For 3D characteristics, the benefits of the contact sensor come into play. The chromatic focus sensor closes the gap between the contact and camera sensors.

Users of measuring system are no longer limited to two system sizes: the smallest model measures 300 x 200 x 200 mm, giving it a measuring range of 12 cubic decimeters. The next size up measures 500 x 400 x 300 mm or 60 cubic decimeters. ZEISS also offers an 863 model for large or heavy workpieces, or large pallets which hold many parts. It features a measuring range of 800 x 600 x 300 mm or 144 cubic decimeters.
