FlexPoint Multisensor Coordinate Measuring Systems



Optical Gaging Products (OGP), a division of Quality Vision International (QVI), has introduced its line of flexible multisensor coordinate measuring systems (CMMs), QVI FlexPoint, to the North American metrology marketplace.

"QVI FlexPoint represents a new generation of large format multisensor CMMs," said a company spokesperson. "FlexPoint provides a unique blend of precision, flexibility and speed to solve a wide variety of dimensional measurement problems for large format parts." Floor model FlexPoint systems are available in nine different configurations with XYZ measurement volumes from 700 x 700 x 600 mm to 1,200 x 3,000 x 1,000 mm and three different variations of bench top systems are also available.

"FlexPoint brings the multisensor advantage to tackle the toughest measurement challenges," continued the spokesperson. These true multisensor systems support a range of tactile and non-contact sensors, including TP20/TP200 touch trigger probes, the SP25 continuous contact scanning touch probe, lasers, white light sensors and a unique QVI video sensor. On floor model systems, a VersaFlex multisensor head offers up to three simultaneously available sensors on an articulating probe head. With several sensors available at once, there is no down time while individual sensors are exchanged from a change rack, and no need to recalibrate each time a sensor is used. Benchtop FlexPoint systems may be configured with TP20/TP200 touch trigger probes or SP25 scanning touch probe.

FlexPoint systems are powered by QVI ZONE3 3D CAD based metrology software. ZONE3 provides flexibility for multisensor measurements, with or without a CAD model. An entirely graphical user interface, visual validation for every step and graphical reporting make ZONE3 an easy and intuitive 3-D metrology software.

Utilizing a stable transport design and carefully selected materials, rigid body members, air bearings on all measurement axes and active temperature compensation, FlexPoint systems are equally at home in the metrology lab or on the shop floor. Unique and patented design features enable a large measuring volume within a relatively compact footprint. Factory volumetric calibration, and in-the-field machine accuracy verification performed according to ISO 10360-2:2009, minimize FlexPoint measurement uncertainty.
