Accu-Chek is proud to be a certified distributor and service provider for Starrett and Mitutoyo visual inspection and metrology equipment. Visual inspection is an important step in guaranteeing consistency and quality when manufacturing products. These systems collect a wide range of critical information that supports a wide variety of processes in the industrial realm.
When Is Visual Testing Needed?
The correct inspection equipment eliminates the human tendency for error. Manufacturing mistakes can be extremely costly and damaging to a brand. With today’s fast-paced, high-volume production, the potential for errors is higher than it has ever been. Highly sensitive and precise visual inspection systems mitigate the risk of error throughout many manufacturing processes.
Visual testing is vital in a number of situations. This precise equipment works in areas where the objects being tested cannot be accessed directly, collecting and recording data at a distance. It’s also useful for applications that require a high level of sensitivity in testing, such as measuring precise manufacturing tolerances. Visual testing also provides an accurate visual record that can be referred to later.
Types of Visual Testing Equipment
Visual inspecting equipment covers a range of application needs. Examples of measuring equipment include:
- Measuring Microscopes
Measuring microscopes provide exquisitely precise measurements of a product’s shape and size. If the object being tested must be accurate on the scale of microns, measuring microscopes can detect size differences that are indistinguishable to the naked eye. Accu-Chek provides measuring microscopes from MARIVISION that feature excellent stereoscopic vision.
- Profile Projectors
Profile projectors are an efficient way to scan multiple products at the same time. This type of visual inspection system is backlit to create a profile of the product being scanned. It then magnifies the profile and projects it onto a screen. This helps ensure quality and uniformity between different parts.
- Video Measurement Systems
Video measurement systems use mechanical platforms for precise positioning. Using advanced software and sensitive video equipment to create high-resolution images, these systems can be used in a wide range of extremely precise applications.
