Mahr is expanding it’s proven OPTIMAR 100 Dial And Digital Indicator Calibrator with image processing for the automated testing of measuring equipment. Existing OPTIMAR 100’s can also be upgraded with the new vision capabilites.
OPTIMAR 100 is a proven solution for testing dial and digital indicators, test Indicators and dial comparators. A new upgrade kit now makes working with the measuring instrument safer and faster: a camera automatically records the indicated values of the test indicators and forwards them to a software for processing. The automated procedure saves time and replaces the exhausting and error-prone reading by the operator.
The hardware and software add-on package provides a cost-efficient way to equip existing measuring stations with OPTIMAR 100 for automated testing. The measuring system including image processing is also available as a complete package under the name “Precimar Optimar 100 BV”.
The upgrade kit incorporates the fast image processing of a USB 3.0 camera, stable daylight-independent LED illumination along with secure digital identification and reading of digits. The QMSOFT software controls the measuring device, evaluates the camera image of the scale or number display of the test object, compares the values with the high accuracy internal reference scale and automatically completes the process of calibrating the product under test. The software also makes it possible to create and store test certificates.
The easy operation of the OPTIMAR 100 with image processing speeds up and facilitates the monitoring of the indicators under test. With the auto-recognition of the vison system, more test items with more data points will be recorded faster than conventional manual methods. Since this is a completely automated inspection system, the operator can be productive doing other operations while the OPTIMAR 100 automatically completes the calibration process. This makes Indicator inspection much more economical.
