The following is a press release provided to Contact the individual company for additional information.

General Inspection exhibited their newest single piece inspection machine at Fastener Fair USA in Nashville, TN.

VisionLab is so versatile it can be used for first piece inspection, SPC sampling, final audits or it can be used for 100% inspection using pick and place automation. VisionLab measures all profile characteristics, it is the only true 3-Dimensional gauging system that provides complete part measurements in less than 7 seconds.

The system can measure all profile features including pertinent GD&T characteristics, as well as all thread features using patented optics and software algorithms that use virtual system-22 thread wireframes. An integrated thread database provides point and click programming. Optional slewing optics automatically tilt for an enhanced view into the radius of the threads to measure root radii and pitch diameter.

Additional options include end-view inspection, surface control and upper tooling with a bit kit. End View is used for measurement and defect detection on both ends of parts. Measurements for features such as: recesses, inner/outer diameters, through holes and counterbores. Defect detection includes cracks, dents, scratches, and plating variations. 

Optional surface control is used to detect surface defects, such as bad plating, thread patch presence and quality, as well as measure knurling width, gap, and height. Finally, upper tooling and a bit kit are available for uneven parts or parts with a recess drive. VisionLab provides comprehensive data reports and graphs with data collection that can be exported to 3rd party SPC packages.

With Windows based software VisionLab is easy to program. Templates are saved by part number and then recalled for instant inspection. VisionLab is the ideal solution for measuring and inspecting turned components and is intended to be in the lab or on the shop floor so that it can be fully utilized replacing manual inspection.

Three models are available: VisionLab-75, VisionLab-150 and VisionLab-X. The VisionLab-75 can handle parts up to 75mm length and up to 35mm diameter. The VisionLab-150 can handle parts up to 150mm length and 50mm diameter. For larger sizes the VisionLab-X can be custom designed to fit most applications.

If you were unable to attend Fastener Fair USA, General Inspection offers live online demonstrations, to schedule a VisionLab demonstration email or call 248-625-0529.
