Optical Gaging Products offers new stage travel options for its small-footprint floor model SmartScope Flash 500 automatic dimensional measurement system. Flash 500's 500 × 450 × 200 mm measurement volume is now available with a volume as large as 500 × 610 × 400 mm (20” × 24” × 16") to accommodate large parts, fixtures and rotaries.

Like other SmartScope Flash systems, Flash 500 measurement accuracy is assured through designed-in features. For example, its optical assembly moves in the X axis across a steel crossbeam so it is evenly supported throughout the extent of its travel, with no stage travel beyond the width of the unit. The part moves only in the Y axis. All axes are DC servo driven and use high resolution scales for positional feedback. A metrologically stable granite platform ensures proper damping and structural integrity. And integral system electronics minimize the total system footprint while maximizing stage travel.

The Flash 500 measurement system excels at video measurement. It is equipped with the AccuCentric 12× motorized zoom lens that auto-calibrates at every magnification change. There are multiple system illumination sources including the white LED SmartRing light, coaxial (TTL) white surface light and green LED back light, to vividly illuminate part features. The machine is multisensor-ready, with available touch trigger probes for tactile measurement of hard-to-image part features, TTL and DRS lasers and the Rainbow Probe scanning white light sensor for non-contact surface contouring, or the Feather Probe micro-probe sensor, that can acquire data points with only milligrams of probing pressure.
