Mitutoyo Quick Vision Stream Plus

FEATURES
  • Extreme Improvement in Throughput
  • STREAM Mode
  • Newly Developed Stroboscopic Illumination System
  • Tracking Auto Focus(TAF)

The QV STREAM PLUS is an innovative vision measuring machine that acquires images without stopping the stage. This is accomplished by synchronizing the main unit's X-axis and Y-axistraversal with strobe illumination.

Conventional vision measuring machines repeat the displacement, stop, measurement and displacement cycle which restricts throughput.

In contrast, the QV STREAM PLUS realizes non-stop vision measurement (stream mode) by eliminating acceleration,deceleration and stop times.Consequently, this dramatically reduces the overall measurement time.

The model equipped with the tracking focus function that allows continuous focusing in response to change in workpiece height is also available. This results in improved measurement throughput

The lineup is similar to the QV Apex range. The models range in size from compact to large. Hence, there is always one that ideally suits the workpiece to be measured.

Newly Developed Stroboscopic Illumination System- The development of a high-intensity LED flash illuminator makes non-stop vision measurement possible. At the precise moment the stage reaches a measurement point, the illuminator creates an extremely short, high-intensity flash that effectively freezes all motion. The illuminator turns on and off so quickly that no image blur occurs, and the image is captured in full and accurate detail. This innovative design takes full advantage of high-density, high-intensity LED arrays aided by collimating lenses and dichroic mirrors to produce ultra-bright, directional and efficient illumination.

Extreme Improvement in Throughput- Conventional vision measuring systems endlessly repeat the cycle of stage displacement, stage stop, measurement, stage start and stage displacement again. This mode of operation is a fundamental limitation on improving measurement throughput. In contrast, the Quick Vision STREAM uses an innovative image capture technique that avoids the need to repeatedly stop the stage so measurement can be continuous, but measuring accuracy is retained. By eliminating the time needed to accelerate, decelerate and then hold the stage motionless while a measurement is made a drastic improvement in productivity is achieved.

Measurement Throughput Comparison between QV STREAM and the Conventional System- STREAM PLUS series: more than 5 times faster * Comparison of measurement throughput using a Mitutoyo sample workpiece with that of conventional Mitutoyo systems.

Tracking Auto Focus (TAF) The TAF feature focuses continuously, adjusting to changes in the height of the object being measured. Automatic tracking of surface waves and war page (in the Z axis height direction) improves measurement throughput. The feature also cuts out the hassle of focusing during manual measurement, reducing the work burden for measuring system operators.
