LCV400: Vision Engineering’s first fully automated 3-axis video measurement system

Today sees the launch of LVC400, the first fully automated 3-axis video measurement system from Vision Engineering at the Control exhibition in Stuttgart.

Ideal for measuring large components or multiple small components, quickly, easily and accurately, LVC400 offers rapid measurement, high accuracy levels, and benefits from Vision Engineering’s consistent focus on ease of use for all of its products.

Featuring a large (400 x 300mm) stage, the LVC400 offers large measuring capacity and fully automated movement in all three axes, making component measurement faster. Non-stop measurement routines are possible through programmes which can have magnification changes built in.

Additionally, multiple components can be loaded onto the stage and measured easily and automatically in a single programme. The system is pre-programmable or can be driven using the supplied joystick for rapid, one off measurements.

The system comprises a high resolution 5MP USB 3 camera, granite base for extra stability and a precision  X-Y stage making it the most  accurate large format measuring system from Vision Engineering to date. LVC400 also supports the use of a touch probe in all three axes, for measuring complex features and other 3D forms.

The machine is supplied with the intuitive M3 software package offering comprehensive measurement functions whilst maintaining the ease of use that Vision Engineering is well known for. M3 software includes full reporting and data export, DXF overlays and fitting, and thread measurement.

Vision Engineering anticipates that LVC400 will be used when customers require the measurement of large components, in applications such as precision machining, casting, plastic mouldings, electronics, and PCB inspection.

Additionally it is ideal when customer requires measurement automation, including palletising of smaller components, faster automated measurement of large components and automated measurement of components that require change of magnification.

Paul Newbatt, Vision Engineering’s sales and marketing director said: “Launching LVC400, our first fully automated 3-axis video measurement system, marks the latest in the extension of our range of metrology products.

“We anticipate that a wide base of customers will find the LVC400’s large stage, accuracy, ease of use, combined with a competitive price point a very attractive proposition.”
