L.S. Starrett Co. (Athol, MA, US) has introduced the HVR100-FLIP, a new large field-of-vision (FOV) benchtop vision measurement system that is capable of being used in either a vertical or horizontal orientation. It features a high-resolution digital video camera and minimal optical distortion for accurate FOV measurements of up to 90 mm/3.65 inches. The FLIP horizontal or vertical orientation feature lends itself to an array of applications. The system can be easily changed over from vertical to horizontal and back within minutes, and can be placed on most sturdy workbenches. The HVR100-FLIP has a 24-inch LCD touch-screen monitor, a 348-by-165-mm (13.7-by-6.5-inch) stationary top plate and 165-mm/6.5-inches of optics travel with a motorized power drive for accommodating various part sizes and enhanced performance.  An LED ring light provides surface illumination and LED backlight offers transmitted illumination. The main operator interface of the FLIP displays a live video image with software measurement tools and graphical digital reading of measurements.  A part image can be resized using pan, zoom and measurements by simply tapping a feature on the monitor screen.  A wireless keyboard and pointing device are also provided for entering file names and targeting key functions. MetLogix M3 software includes 2D geometric functions such as points, lines, circles, arcs, rectangles, distances, slots, angles and skew, and use of the part design DXF/CAD file digital overlay is designed to help simplify part inspection.
