OGP Introduces Technological Advancement in Video Comparator Systems
August 25, 2021
Optical Gaging Products (OGP®), a manufacturer of precision multisensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, announced a technological breakthrough in value-class video comparator systems: The Automatic Three-Position Lens Changer, available on c-vision™ Lite Video Contour Projectors®.
This CNC lens turret allows for nine automatic, programmable magnification changes – 3 optical and 6 digital – within a CNC program. The system is both parfocal and parcentral – parts on the stage stay in focus and stay centered when magnification and focal length is changed.
Three internal lenses offer 2-inch, 1-inch, and half-inch fields of view – permanently mounted in a shop-hardened motorized turret.
“Before this innovation, operators were required to manually unscrew a lens, attempt to safely store the lens, screw in a new lens, and recalibrate – a very timely task that could never be done in the middle of a program” said Tim Fantauzzo, OGP Vice President of North American Sales.
c-vision Lite systems are a part of the c-vision family of Video Contour Projectors from OGP – the c-vision Lite, the c-vision Benchtop, and the c-vision Floor Model. c-vision systems combine the speed and accuracy of a video measurement system with the rugged capacity of an optical comparator to create the world’s best shop-floor measuring tools for 2D measurement.
