NIKON METROLOGY WWW.NIKONMETROLOGY.COM THERMOCOUPLE MODULE Omega’s new OM-WLS-TC series 8 channel wireless thermocouple input module supports thermocouple types J, K, T, E,N, R, S and B. The OM-WLS-TC can be operated as a standalone plug-and-play device when connected directly to the computer’s USB port or as a remote wireless device that communicates with the computer through the OM-WLS-IFC USB-to-wireless interface. The OM-WLS-TC is CE compliant and ships with an array of software including the new TracerDAQ®, and full-featured, out-of-the-box data logging viewing, and analysis application. Ideal for chemical and water industries and for applications involving monitoring process temperatures in plant operations, R&D and manufacturing areas. OMEGA ENGINEERING (800) TC-OMEGA | INFO@OMEGA.COM | WWW.OMEGA.COM/PPTST/OM-WLS-TC.HTML SOFTWARE Hexagon Metrology announced the release of PC-DMIS Gear 2.5, a sophisticated software module designed for basic and advanced gear measurement applications. The new version simplifies measurement routines by using a parameter-driven graphical interface to speed inspections of helical spur, bevel gears and pinions. PC-DMIS Gear 2.5 software is compatible with standard CMMs, eliminating the need to invest in separate gear measurement equipment. The software also runs on vision CMMs for inspection applications of small spur gears. PC-DMIS is an integrated metrology system used for developing inspection routines, measuring parts, managing data, evaluating and reporting results. PC-DMIS Gear 2.5 is developed by Hexagon Metrology, the largest software developer in the metrology industry. Expert and non-expert operators can quickly build gear inspection routines by first completing a rules-driven form, then choosing the desired inspection report(s) from a set of pre-defined, standard formats. The software then automatically generates the program and inspection reports. Users can also create measurement alignment and probe qualification routines to completely automate the inspection process. PC-DMIS Gear supports a wide range of international standards including AGMA 2000-A88, DIN 3962, JIS B 1702 and ISO 1328. HEXAGON METROLOGY WWW.HEXAGONMETROLOGY.U VISION MEASURING MACHINE Mitutoyo America Corporation announces release of the new Quick Vision® WLI vision measuring machine. Besides an optical vision head, the Quick Vision® WLI also incorporates a white light interferometer (WLI) head. Together these heads enable high accuracy performance of non-contact vision plus non-contact 3D measurement of high aspect-ratio minute form (Z = Sub ìm ~ 100ìm) functions in a single machine—eliminating the need to move a workpiece from one type of machine to another. As a result, the Quick Vision® WLI offers a significant throughput improvement for non-contact measurement of items combining both 2-D and minute form 3-D features in a single workpiece—example subjects could include IC chips and packages, hybrid chassis, lead frames and many types of precision machined and molded parts. MITUTOYO AMERICA CORPORATION (630) 820-9666 | INFO@MITUTOYO.COM | WWW.MITUTOYO.COM MEASURE TOOLS Highly accurate inspection of tooling is exactly the application for which the new multi-sensor coordinate measuring machine, Werth VideoCheck® V HA of Werth Messtechnik GmbH, was developed. It is the most accurate multi-sensor coordinate measuring machine worldwide with E1 = 0.25 +L/900 traceablility to national standards. Through the integration of state of the art multi-sensor technology, previously impossible, sophisticated measurements will be just a mouse click away. The maximum workpiece size is 15.7” (800mm) x 9.8” (250mm). A large range of turnkey application, parametric programs are available (i.e. hobs, step drills, reamers, shafts). WERTH, INC. | WWW.WERTHINC.COM LASER SCANNING MICROSCOPE The LSM 700 Laser Scanning Microscope from Carl Zeiss sets a new standard for confocal microscopy with maximum performance at a favorable price. Building upon proven technology concepts, it offers innovative solutions for image analysis with exceptional sensitivity and quality—with an extremely attractive price/performance ratio. High flexibility both in application and system structure is the outstanding feature of the LSM 700. The fields of application extend from simple routine to multidimensional images in biomedical research. The system can be combined with a large number of microscope stands and tailored to the personal requirements of each user. This makes it ideal as an entry-level system for confocal microscopy. CARL ZEISS MICROSCOPY (914) 681-7782 | MEVERETT@ZEISS.COM | WWW.ZEISS.COM/MICRO OPTICAL PROFILER Providing nanometer-level surface measurement precision on the production floor, ZeGage™ optical profiler is now available with programmable stage capabilities. With a motorized, programmable XY stage, ZeGage profiler stitches adjacent measurements into contiguous, high-resolution 3-D plots; another benefit of an automated stage is the ability to either sample sets of parts, or sample different locations on the same part. Made for production metrology, ZeGage profiler features SureScan™ technology, providing reliable measurements even in vibration-prone environments. ZeGage profiler provides 3-D optical surface metrology, with a precision below 3.5 nanometers. ZYGO CORPORATION 800-ZYGONOW INQUIRE@ZYGO.COM WWW.ZYGO.COM CERAMIC BALL MOUNTED HOLLOW RETROREFLECTOR These non-magnetic BMRs are available in 2 center accuracies within .0005” and within .0001”. They are manufactured in 1 ½”, 7/8” and 1/2”diameters. Ceramic BMRs are lighter, smoother, corrosion and electrically resistant with low thermal conductivity. PLX unconditionally guarantees their BMRs to provide superior performance and compatibility with laser tracking systems from all manufacturers. PLX, INC.
