Vision Engineering has announced that it will be showcasing Vision Engineering’s new Swift Duo video measuring system at Subcon 2011.

Swift Duo is the first video measuring system to incorporate an ergonomic measuring microscope.

Previously difficult-to-view samples can be measured and inspected on same system, in the same routine, by the same operator.

Swift Duo provides fast and accurate measurement of both routine and complex precision component parts, suitable for both shop-floor and manufacturing inspection applications.

From simple single-feature operation to multi-point video edge detection measurements, Swift Duo combines simplicity with a comprehensive array of video measurement tools.

By integrating a high-resolution ergonomic microscope head, Vision Engineering has created a video measuring system capable of measuring all precision components.

Both video and optical measurements occur seamlessly, in the same routine, without any hold-ups.

Swift Duo is a two-axis measuring microscope with a 150 x 100mm (X,Y) measuring stage, with a factory-completed Non-Linear Error Correction (NLEC) calibration, traceable to international standards for the purposes of ISO9000.

With a range of new software options, the Swift Duo can be utilised with a microprocessor or a tablet incorporating touch-screen technology.

Vision Engineering

Founded in 1958, the privately owned Vision Engineering Ltd has become Britain’s leading microscopy company and a world leader in optical innovation, specialising in eyepieceless and expanded pupil inspection and measurement systems for both industry and life-science markets.

Vision holds world patents for techniques, which expand the exit pupil of microscope systems. These techniques are used in the company’s renowned DynascopeTM eyepieceless inspection and non-contact measurement systems, Mantis® eyepiecelss microscope and Lynx® expanded pupil microscopes. Vision Engineering has patented the ISIS® expanded pupil microscope accessory for optimising the ergonomics of other brand microscopes. The company has a successful range of non-contact measuring systems (Kestrel®, Hawk) and the DX range of biomedical and analytical microscopes. Vision Engineering has revolutionised the optical inspection and measurement sector by adopting emerging new technologies in optical production, precision injection moulding and vacuum forming to give the highest optical performances at low cost. Vision Engineering’s products also focus on advanced ergonomics for user comfort, reduced eyestrain and improved productivity.

Vision Engineering’s main manufacturing base is at Send, near Woking in Surrey. Further commercial and assembly activities are carried out at a second site in Woking. Vision has a North American division, which manufactures in New Milford, Connecticut, US, and operates direct sales and distribution networks from regional offices on the east and west coasts. The company also has additional subsidiaries in France, Germany, Japan, Italy, the Benelux countries, Brazil and China, plus a network of 120 stock-holding and fully trained distributors servicing all other developed countries.

More than 90 per cent of manufacturing output from the Send research and production base is exported. Vision Engineering received the Queen’s Award for Export in 1991.
