VisionGauge is a powerful machine vision and image analysis software product that allows the user to capture, manipulate, analyze, store and output images and data.

VisionGauge, located in Pointe-Claire, Quebec Canada, is used to compute measurement statistics, count and measure discrete objects like particles, grains and cells. It also carries out many different types of reliable and repeatable high-precision measurements.

VisionGauge is primarily used on high-tech manufacturing industries for electronics, semiconductors, printed circuit boards, precision mechanical components and assemblies. It is used for quality control, dimensional verification, documentation, training, as well as general imaging and high-precision visual measurement.

Digital Optical Comparators | VisionGauge

Digital Optical Comparators use CAD files instead of a template or overlay film to digitally inspect parts to a higher level of precision and convenience. It actively compares the measurements with nominal values for precise accuracy, enabling the user to judge whether the workpiece is acceptable.
