LVC400 Automated Video Measurement System

Vision Engineering Inc. has launched the LVC400, a fully automated 3-axis video measurement system. Suitable for measuring large components or multiple small components, quickly, easily and accurately, LVC400 offers faster measurement and high accuracy levels.

Offering a larger (400 x 300mm) stage than comparably priced products, LVC400 offers large measuring capacity and fully automated movement in all three axes, making component measurement faster. Non-stop measurement routines are possible through programs, which can have magnification changes built in.

Additionally, multiple components can be loaded onto the stage and measured easily and automatically in a single programme. The system is preprogrammable or can be driven using the supplied joystick for rapid, one off measurements.

LVC400 features a high-resolution 5MP USB3 camera, granite base for extra stability and a precision  X-Y stage; making it the most  accurate large format measuring system from Vision Engineering to date. LVC400 also supports the use of a touch probe in all three axes, for measuring complex features and other 3D forms.

LVC400 is supplied with the highly intuitive M3 software package; offering comprehensive measurement functions, whilst maintaining the ease of use that Vision Engineering is well known for. M3 software includes full reporting and data export, DXF overlays and fitting, and thread measurement.

Vision Engineering anticipates that LVC400 will be used when customers require the measurement of large components, in applications such as precision machining, casting, plastic moldings, electronics and PCB inspection.  Additionally, LVC400 is suitable when customer requires measurement automation, including palletizing of smaller components, faster automated measurement of large components and automated measurement of components that require change of magnification.

Richard Nagel, Vision Engineering’s vice president sales and marketing, sai: “We are excited to extend our metrology range by offering our first fully automated video measurement system with motorized zoom. The LVC400 offers many sought after features and benefits customers need when looking for a fully automated video measurement system. The LVC400’s large stage, accuracy, ease of use, combined with a competitive price point makes this a welcomed addition to our metrology range.”

  • metrology


    Science of measurement; the principles on which precision machining, quality control and inspection are based. See precision machining, measurement.

  • precision machining ( precision measurement)

    precision machining ( precision measurement)

    Machining and measuring to exacting standards. Four basic considerations are: dimensions, or geometrical characteristics such as lengths, angles and diameters of which the sizes are numerically specified; limits, or the maximum and minimum sizes permissible for a specified dimension; tolerances, or the total permissible variations in size; and allowances, or the prescribed differences in dimensions between mating parts.
