FASTEC IMAGING IL5 HIGH-SPEED CAMERA Fastec Imaging’s IL5 High-Speed 5MP Camera enables you to record production lines moving at high speed for analysis or troubleshooting using slow motion replay, so you can see what you have been missing with normal speed video. With four models to choose from, boasting crisp, clean video from 2560 x 2080 @ 230fps to 800 x 600 @ 1650fps, there is an IL5 to fit your application needs. All models record over 3200 fps at VGA resolution and more than 18,000 fps at smaller resolutions. Able to save images to an SSD or SD card while recording high-speed bursts of hundreds or even thousands of images at a time, the IL5 is always ready for the next high-speed snapshot. With a base model starting below $9,000, the IL5 is a cost-effective solution to record high-speed events for slow motion analysis. Built for flexibility and ease of use, the Fastec IL5 camera can be controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via Fastec FasMotion software on your PC/Mac or via the built-in web interface with your favorite web browser on your PC, Mac, tablet, or even your smartphone. Using the (LR) FasCorder Mode, operate the camera as a regular camcorder to record and pause as needed and follow the action, stop recording and review what you have, and then append additional footage at will, even after a power cycle. Unlike traditional high-speed camera systems that only record for a few seconds and require careful triggering, the IL5’s Long-Record (LR) option can record at high speed for many minutes at high resolutions, to many hours at reduced resolutions.

HEMCO | (800) 779-4362 | WWW.HEMCOCORP.COM/MFII.HTML LEICA ABSOLUTE TRACKER AT930, AT960 SOFTWARE Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced the release of a System Software Update v1.3 for its Leica Absolute Tracker AT930 and AT960 laser trackers. This upgrade brings advances in usability as well as improvements to automated application functionalities. Automated applications are increasingly a vital proposition for advanced users, and improvements in this area have been a top priority in this update. New software commands will deliver up to 40 percent faster process speeds using reflectors and 6DoF probes such as the Leica T-Scan or Leica T-Mac. This will enable shorter times that are crucial in automated inspection, whether for close to production, in-line or metrology-assisted assembly use cases. Hard Shock data handling is among the key new introductions with this update. Those making full use of the portability of their Leica Absolute Tracker will be notified when system accuracy checks are required following the unforeseen impacts that commonly occur in transit. The update also delivers important PowerLock advances. With the new intelligent autoexposure feature, the tracker will automatically recognize ambient lighting conditions and adapt settings accordingly without user input. This function will ensure high PowerLock performance, even in extremely bright outdoor environments. In a further improvement for automated inspection, the use of “Measure All You Can See” software functions is now a simple, single button process. A typical setup with five targets that would previously have taken up to 25 seconds with repeated targeting and measurements will now take as little as 5 seconds. This allows users to simply set up their tracker in front of a prepared object and produce a full line-of-sight measurement almost immediately. Every newly-purchased Leica Absolute Tracker AT930 and AT960 will now ship with System Software Update v1.3 already installed. Customers with existing systems will also be able to receive the upgrade through their system’s builtin software update manager. HEXAGON MANUFACTURING INTELLIGENCE WWW.HEXAGONMI.COM MAHR MARSURF PS 10 ROUGHNESS MEASURING UNIT Mahr introduced the new MarSurf® PS 10 Roughness Measuring Unit. The MarSurf PS 10 from Mahr is a practical roughness measuring unit for mobile use. Using a smartphone-like 4.3-in. TFT touch screen display, operation is fast, intuitive and user-friendly. The new generation MarSurf PS 10 design measures 31 roughness parameters, offers a convenient list of “favorite” functions in the display, and provides laboratory level performance on the shop floor. The measuring unit is intended for quick roughness testing in and on a machine while in production. It is excellent for use in quality assurance of milled and turned parts, ground and honed workpieces, on large machines, large workpieces, or for use with incoming inspection. The only mobile measuring device on the market with auto cutoff selection, the MarSurf PS 10 ensures proper measurement results even by the non-metrologist. The range of measuring applications is expanded by the ability to remove the drive unit from the MarSurf PS 10 and operate it separately from the display, providing the user with more flexibility. The drive also incorporates built-in “Vees” to support small diameter parts during the measurement cycle. Optional probes for different measuring tasks allow for the measurement of gears and deep measuring points such as in grooves or bores. The large battery pack recharges in 1.5 hours and enables over 1,200 measurements per charge. Measuring data from the MarSurf PS 10 can be saved in TXT, X3P, CSV, or PDF formats as finished measuring records with no additional software. A Mahr calibration certificate is included in the scope of delivery, and error-free measurements are made possible by the integrated and removable calibration standard. When combined with Mahr eStick wireless data transmission, data collection becomes seamless with MarCom software. MAHR FEDERAL INC.

With automated analysis functions and an enhanced wide field camera option, the microscope enables analysts of all experience levels to observe, measure, and analyze micro samples quickly and efficiently. Laboratories can use this microscope system to perform high-sensitivity analysis in fields such as electrical/ electronics, forensics, pharmaceuticals, life science, foods, and chemicals. With a 330X digital zoom “view to scan” feature, the AIM-9000 infrared microscope system provides analysts with an easier and more efficient tool for finding and positioning microscopic samples for accurate analysis. In addition to observing large areas up to 10x13 mm, analysts can use the wide field camera and microscope camera together to zoom and position areas as small as 30x40 µm without loss or repositioning of the sample. The microscope’s best-in-class 30,000:1 signal-to-noise ratio allows users to obtain excellent spectra from even the smallest contaminants for more accurate library matching and identification. The AIM-9000 microscope features automatic contaminant recognition and registration, making the system ideal for contaminant analysis. Analysts simply click one button and the software automatically selects potential areas for analysis and suggests optimal aperture sizes and angles, all in only one second. The user can then select all for analysis, select none, or add their own manually with a mouse click-and-drag operation. All selected sample images are saved into the measured spectral file automatically. Proprietary spectral identification programming uses both library scans and key spectral features to rapidly match spectra and provide identification with reporting. With convenience and functionality in mind, Shimadzu has equipped the AIM- 9000 infrared microscope system with a visible/infrared dual view system. This allows users to measure infrared spectra while simultaneously checking a visible image of the sample. This provides for more confident measurements while decreasing overall measurement time. Analysts can also use the high-speed mapping program, which captures microscope images and quickly synthesizes them to create visual images for large areas. The AIM-9000 microscope system is supported by a large array of accessories. These include a variety of ATR options, a TGS detector for extended wavelength range or for operation when liquid nitrogen is not available, and visible and infrared polarizers for examining oriented samples.
