Two new models have now been added to Nikon Metrology's latest NEXIV S-range of CNC video measuring systems suitable for in-line, automated dimensional measurement tasks.
The CNC video measurement system "NEXIV" can automatically measure the dimensions of component features using Nikon's world renowned optical and image processing technology. By analyzing the captured image of a component, detecting feature edges at high speed, both accurately and with repeatably, it is possible to quickly measure components with simple and complex features.
With the growth in demand for measuring smaller components with higher performance, and the huge increase in the number of electronic components installed in automobiles, there is a greater need for video measuring systems to measure more components at higher speeds in automated production lines.
The "NEXIV VMZ-S" series has realized this increased throughput by maintaining and enhancing the performance of the previous model, the “NEXIV VMZ-R" series. In November 2020, Nikon released the first in the line-up of new VMZ-S systems, the “VMZ-S3020", which is part of the fourth generation of the “NEXIV” series. The "VMZ-S4540" and "VMZ-S6555" now join and expand this line-up and are perfect solutions for medium and large components or for loading multiple components.
Now that the full line-up of “NEXIV VMZ-S” series is available it is possible to select the most suitable machine according to a customer’s applications and installation environment. In addition, by utilizing the “Remote Control SDK” software (optional),
