Flexible Solution for High-Precision Measurements

Optoquick is the latest generation Marposs flexible solution for high precision gauging controls on shafts, such as cam, crank or gear shafts.

With Optoquick, parts are automatically measured while in motion and at a high speed. "Optoquick enables very high productivity and is a perfect solution to manage peaks in production. This results in a very fast ROI," said a company spokesperson.

Optoquick features include:

  • Full industrial grade design, HW and SW
  • Manual and automated part loading
  • Integrated PC with IP54 enclosure rate
  • Dynamic temperature compensation
  • User independent measurements.

The SPC software is designed to provide maximum operation efficiency by line personnel. It features a user-friendly interface along with intuitive measuring result presentation, multi-format measuring data exportation and visual auto-diagnosis notifications.

Optoquick can optionally incorporate depth and contact probes, expanding the measuring capabilities on request. "As a result, Optoquick delivers extensive accuracy in part inspection, even with demanding shapes such as cam profiles, key depth measuring and axial run-outs of inner surfaces," said the spokesperson.

Optoquick can be re-configured in line if parts to be measured change. Or, a single Optoquick can be simultaneously used for different parts from different stages in the same production.

Optoquick solutions are suitable for a variety of measuring and inspection tasks, including:

  • Static and dynamic measures
  • Cam lobe inspection
  • Concentricity
  • Distances and widths
  • Radial run-out
  • Key slot depth and angle
  • Interrupted surfaces
  • Dynamic diameters
  • Dynamic measures on eccentric bearings
  • Axial run-out at multiple user-defined radii
  • Radii and groove diameter
  • Cylindricity and roundness.

Optoquick is available in two models, Optoquick M and Optoquick L, differentiating for gauging capabilities and selectable functional options.
