VisionGauge OnLine Improves Usability of Digital Optical Comparator 700 Series

Sudbury, Mass. February 03, 2021 – Methods Machine Tools, Inc., the foremost supplier of high-quality machine tools in North America, recently announced new software enhancements to VisionGauge OnLine, machine vision software for automated inspection, verification, and data collection.

One of the main upgrades improves the speed and usability of the VisionGaugeDigital Optical Comparator 700 series. The Digital Optical Comparator 700 Series is a five-axis measurement/inspection system that obtains accurate measurements and displays them as crisp, high-resolution images.

The upgrade gives users two options to supply the measurement system with hole coordinate data directly from a laser, electric discharge machining (EDM) drill, or machine tool. Once transferred from the machine to the Digital Optical Comparator 700 Series, users can display the data using a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software package.

For more information or specific steps to transfer data from an EDM machine or a machine tool directly to the Digital Optical Comparator 700 Series, contact VisionX.
