Baty International is one of the world's leading manufacturers of Optical Profile Projectors, Co-ordinate Measuring Systems and Gauging Products. Building on decades of experience in non contact dimensional measurement, Baty International has offered camera based (vision) measuring systems since the early 1980s. Now, as an ISO 9001:2000 accredited company, Baty’s comprehensive portfolio of Metrology Instruments ranges from Hand Tools to Vision Systems; solutions for almost every measurement application in modern manufacturing.
This premium quality, high precision bore micrometer range is designed and manufactured in England to exacting standards.
Standard: DIN 862
The Snapmaster snap gauge has been designed specifically for quick, reliable and accurate measurement of external cylindrical diameters.
Particularly suitable for use in series production, the instrument is tough and solid enough to use on the machine in the workshop and flexible enough to be used in the measuring room for sample measurements (bench-stand available).
The measuring surfaces are of top-quality tungsten carbide mounted on a no-maintenance spring-operated mechanism. Special anvils (e.g for grooves etc) can be fitted to the standard gauge by means of the mounting holes in the anvil.
The ShadoMaster is a horizontal camera based video inspection system that is particularly aimed at turned part measurement.
The cast iron stage has tooling slots aligned with the optical path to facilitate the mounting of work holding fixtures such as vee-blocks and centres.
A selection of video edge scanning tools scan the profile of the shaft and Baty’s Fusion software converts this scanned data into a dimensioned drawing of the measured part.
Interchangeable fixed objective lenses are used to determine the field of view and pixel size which can be sub-micron for close tolerance requirements.
The VI-3015H can measure shafts up to 300mm in length with a maximum diameter of 150mm providing the overall weight does not exceed 25KG.
The PC based controller runs on a Windows 7 operating system and is completely integrated within the chassis so the installation is both quick and easy with no trailing cables. The system is also supplied with LED surface illumination which is ideal for illuminating the various facets of form cutting tools for example. The LED lighting consists of 16 high intensity white LEDS which can be switched on in clusters to form a segment which can be radially positioned by using the mouse. This means that the light can be positioned exactly where it needs to be in order for the edge detection tools to measure the edges that you are interested in. Once programmed, the lighting conditions are reproduced by the software for every inspection to ensure optimum repeatability.
