Extreme Improvement in Throughput :
Conventional vision measuring systems endlessly repeat the cycle of stage displacement, stage stop, measurement, stage start and stage displacement again. This mode of operation is a fundamental limitation on improving measurement throughput. In contrast, the Quick Vision STREAM uses an innovative image capture technique that avoids the need to repeatedly stop the stage so measurement can be continuous, but measuring accuracy is retained. By eliminating the time needed to accelerate, decelerate and then hold the stage motionless while a measurement is made a drastic improvement in productivity is achieved.
Measurement Throughput Comparison between QV STREAM and the Conventional System:
STREAM PLUS series: more than 5 times * Comparison of measurement throughput using a Mitutoyo sample workpiece with that of Mitutoyo conventional systems
The measurement mode of non-stop vision measuring system is referred to as the STREAM mode.
Newly Developed Stroboscopic Illumination System:
It was the development of a high-intensity LED flash illuminator that enabled non-stop vision measurement to be realized. At the precise moment the stage reaches a measurement point the illuminator creates an extremely short, high-intensity flash that effectively freezes all motion. The illuminator turns on and off so fast that no image blur occurs and the image is captured in full and accurate detail. This innovative design takes full advantage of high-density, high-intensity LED arrays aided by collimating lenses and dichroic mirrors to produce ultra bright, directional and efficient illumination.
Tracking Auto Focus (TAF):
The TAF feature focuses continuously, adjusting to changes in the height of the object being measured. Automatic tracking of surface waves and war page (in the Z axis height direction) improves measurement throughput. The feature also cuts out the hassle of focusing during manual measurement, reducing the work burden for measuring system operators. Note: Continuous measurement of displacement is not performed.
