Keyence Corporation of America, Woodcliff Lake, NJ, has introduced the IM-6000 Series dimension measurement and inspection system that features pattern registration and pattern search functions for “place and press” measurement. The system eliminates the need for optical comparators, x-y stages for part positioning, CNC measuring devices, and stereo microscopes. Parts to be measured are placed on the sample tray and the measurement button is pushed. An Intelligent Pattern Analysis Search System (PASS) automatically locates, identifies, and measures parts placed anywhere within the unit’s 100-mm field of view. A Part Evaluation Library stores the images, measurement functions, and specifications of parts, and provides automatic pattern search, part recognition, and measurement without setup the next time inspection of the same parts is required. It performs up to 99 distinct measurements with one press of a button, and measures features such as angle, radius, inner/outer diameter, and circular and linear pitch. Image processing uses functions such as least square fitting and abnormal data point removal.
