Optical and Tactile Combination for Shaft Metrology

VICIVISION, a provider of shaft measuring technology, now offers a completely new measuring function for shafts, combining the specific optical know-how method with a touch probe measuring system. "The Optical Measuring system, made of telecentric lens, a light source, a rotation system and sensors, provides a long list of measurements to hundreds of shaft and cylindrical part manufacturers," said a company spokesperson.

Today, the combination of optical and tactile functions results in complete measuring control for turned parts in just one cycle. The measuring system is now enriched with a Renishaw Scanning Probe, mounted on the top of the light source. The probe is interchangeable and covers the whole length area.

While the optical measuring system quickly provides static, geometric, thread, form and nut measurements, the touch system provides the added benefit of detecting features that are not optically measurable.

The optical and touch combo gives end users the possibility of measuring various points and elements, such as axial and total axial run-out, length, planarity, perpendicularity, keyway width, keyway depth and keyway length. The new Touch Probe from VICIVISION is an optional feature for new M Series, X Series and Techno Range units. These probes are suitable for applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical industries and more.
