By integrating an ergonomic measuring microscope with a fully automated video measuring system, Vision Engineering has created Hawk Duo CNC.
Hawk Duo CNC offers high accuracy, repeatable measurement of complex components of all materials and excels at measuring both routine and difficult-to-view components, such as black or transparent plastics – all in one system!
Hawk Duo CNC is designed for companies who demand the highest levels of manufacturing quality, with the power and flexibility to meet the most demanding measurement requirements.
Two measurement systems in one – extend your versatility
- Fully automated 3-axis optical and video measurements.
- Patented microscope-resolution viewing head clearly defines edges, even for difficult-to-view samples
- Integrated high resolution video measuring system, ideal for routine measurements
- High precision measuring stage
- Powerful and intuitive PC-based software
- Range of system configurations and options
Why optical and video measurement? Hawk Duo CNC offers a powerful, flexible solution to meet the most demanding measurement applications.In addition to programmable, fully automated CNC control, Hawk Duo CNC combines both optical and video measurement technologies in a single system. So whatever component you are measuring, you have the power and flexibility to use the optimal method of measurement – in a single system!
Users even have the ability to switch between video and optical measurement within the same measuring routine.
Why use optical measurement?
In order to take an accurate measurement, you need to clearly identify the edge of the feature being measured. Hawk Duo incorporates a patented eyepieceless measuring microscope, providing high contrast, microscope-resolution image of your components.
Complex, or difficult-to-view features can be viewed in intricate detail, ensuring you can take accurate measurement of all you components, not just the easy ones! The superb microscope image also allows for high resolution visual inspection.
Video measurement is ideal for routine components where edges of features can easily be identified. ‘Next generation’ measurement software coupled with a high resolution video camera enables Hawk Duo to measure a wide variety of simple and complex features, quickly and simply.
However, components come in all shapes, colors, and textures, so with Hawk Duo, you can choose the ideal technology for the measured feature, seamlessly switching from video measurement to optical measurement in the same routine, without delay, ensuring you have the best measurement tool available all the time.
Vision Engineering’s Hawk family
The Hawk family of non-contact measurement systems comprises of a wide range of vision systems, individually tailored for specific measurement applications.
All Hawk systems feature Vision Engineering’s patented Dynascope™ viewing head, providing unrivaled image clarity, making accurate measurements easy.
