Swift PRO enables new measurement capabilities 26 March 2020

Vision Engineering is currently focused on its latest range of metrology systems – Swift PRO (Duo, Cam and Elite), which it describes as a powerful yet easy and ‘simple to operate’ range of non-contact measuring systems.

Combining the latest optical and video measurement technologies, Vision Engineering says the Swift PRO is the right tool for a broad range of applications from electronics and aerospace to plastic and medical parts manufacturing, where reporting and quality control are in demand.

Thanks to its design, fast and accurate 3-axis measurement, and user-friendly interface, the Swift PRO provides shop floor operators with a quick and easy way of measuring components and reporting. With simplicity at its core, the system can be used by shift workers or advanced users and requires only minimal training. This significantly reduces staff costs and operator errors.

Swift PRO software is easy to learn and operate, providing instant profile and surface measurement, advanced reporting and basic system control. Previously difficult to view samples can be measured more accurately with a new HD video camera with Video Edge Detection (VED), and fully dimmable stage illumination. Measuring stages, 200mm x 100mm and 150mm x 100mm, provide up to 5μm accuracy and come with a choice of either robust QC3000 controller/microprocessor or easy to use PC software, offering flexibility and small footprints.

Vison Engineering points out that its Swift PRO Duo is the only video measuring system to incorporate an ergonomic measuring microscope. Combined video and microscope technologies allow seamless switching between video and microscope measurement. The patented optical viewer offers high resolution surface inspection.

Vision Engineering also describes its Swift PRO Cam as “the perfect entry level video measuring and inspection system”. With its HD video camera and large measuring stage, the Swift PRO Cam allows the system operator to simply “place and measure” a wide range of precision parts.

Finally, Swift PRO Elite is a simple optical measuring microscope providing accurate measurement even for notoriously difficult subjects such as black or transparent plastics. A patented optical viewer (head) clearly defines edges and offers superb resolution and true colour images. Swift PRO Elite employs a high stability stand with a precision engineered bearing assembly to optimise X, Y measurements at different plane heights.
