Spectrum Metrology has launched the VideoCAD series to the UK for precise, high-speed measurement of 2D geometries.

The devices are suited to profiles made of plastic, aluminium, wood, rubber and metal, as well as stamped parts of any kind.

The VideoCAD combines speed with precision up to E2= (4+L/50).

Combined with dedicated measurement software to give ‘tailor made’ measurements, the VideoCAD offers a range of applications.

The software allows geometries to be recorded (lengths, diameters, radii, angles) and CAD comparisons, 2D bestfit and prototype inspections.

A combination of transmitted and incident light ensures that all visible contours can be measured, even on parts composed of more than one type of material.

The ultra-high resolution optics on the VideoCAD ensure distortion-free measurement with calibrated measuring ranges.

The entry-level VideoCAD system is the VideoCAD1, a portable optical measuring device for objects of up to 80 x 60mm.

VideoCAD3 is a larger system that can be integrated into the production process and measures objects up to 225 x 168mm.

Using Saphir software, all measurement sequences can be pre-programmed to allow unskilled operators to carry out measurements at the touch of a button.

Using the pre-programmed software, the recording and evaluation of measured data can be accomplished in a few milliseconds, giving a complete copy of the measurement object compatible with DXF files.

Further processing is then possible up to the point of a VDA/ISO first-sample inspection report.
