Original Press Release:

Mitutoyo Announces Faster, More Accurate Quick Vision Apex® Series CNC Video Measuring Systems

(Aurora, IL) The new Quick Vision Apex® Series CNC vision measuring systems from Mitutoyo America Corporation provide the highest levels of accuracy (1.5+3L/1000) and speed (1000mm/s²) in their class. As a result, they offer significant productivity improvements for non-contact measurement of items such as IC chips, IC packages, hybrid chassis, lead frames and many types of precision machined, molded and similar parts.

The Quick Vision Apex platform is driven by Mitutoyo QVPAK® software, offering a wide range of choice in accuracy levels, optical/oblique illumination systems and measuring ranges. QVPAK also includes provisions to integrate touch probing for 3-D measuring work.

Quick Vision Apex systems provide flexible illumination options including programmable ring lights with choices of halogen ring-fiber or white or RGB LED.

A pattern focusing function provides a focused edge, even on mirror finishes. Also, the programmable power turret tube lens (or available programmable power zoom lens) provides automatic zooming for a wider field of view at high levels of image detail.

QVPAK software features include a sophisticated GUI, extended 3-D data processing functions, complete support of touch-probe measurement with video/TP calibration, and two new illumination tools.

QVPAK displays measurement results in 2D/3D graphics for easy interpretation. Single mouse-click edge-detection, abnormal data elimination, noise filters, data fit, the SmartEditor® part program, plus a variety of additional editing and control tools are standard.

Optional software modules extend QVPAK functionality. A partial list of examples includes: QVPartManager® which allows for measurement of multiple parts - even for multiple, different parts - staged at one time, QVEio® which provides external machine control via an RS-232C interfaced PC, and MeasureReport/E®, a Microsoft® Excel®-based routine for automatic report generation and printout.
