AVR200/300 CNC Automatic Vision Systems

CNC Automatic Vision Metrology Systems
“Accurate, Flexible and Ideal for Repetitive Measurement”

The Starrett AVR Series CNC automatic vision metrology systems are ideal for repetitive measurements and automatic comparison to CAD files. They are available with dedicated 6.5:1 or 12:1 zoom optics or a quick-change bayonet lens mount which accepts a choice of six interchangeable telecentric lenses for micron-level resolution and optical distortion down to 0.001% for accurate field-of-view
(FOV) measurements. The FOV can encompass an entire small part up to 2.00 x 1.50″ or a feature of a larger part and be seamlessly integrated with stage motion to measure parts with a length up to 8″ (AVR200) or 12″ (AVR300). Systems are also touch probe compatible.
AVR Series hardware features include a granite base for maximum stability, recirculating ball linear guides for smooth and precise stage motion, and full CNC control for high throughput. All electronics other than the PC are housed in the Z-column, ensuring an integrated system with minimal external wiring.

The AVR Series consists of two models for 8 x 4 x 8″ or 12 x 8 x 8″ of X-Y-Z travel. Both provide motorized travel and zoom, which can be under full software control (CNC operation), or under manual control via a joystick and trackball. Available with interchangeable telecentric lenses for field-of-view (FOV) measurements or with dedicated with optical zoom, these new CNC vision metrology systems are easy to use, versatile and accurate.
They are equally suitable for individual measurements, for high-speed “go-no-go” testing of small parts within the FOV, and for automatic testing using stage motion to measure parts up to 8″ (200mm) on the AVR200 and up to 12″ (300mm) on the AVR300. Systems are also touch probe compatible.

Operator Interface
The AVR Series is built around a 24″ touch screen and PC which runs MetLogix™ M3 CNC software under Windows® 10 Professional. M3 software supports 3-axis measurements and 2D geometrical constructs (points, lines, angles, rectangles). The screen displays a live video image of the part plus geometry tools and digital readings. The part image can be resized using pan and zoom, and measurements can be taken by simply tapping a feature on the screen. With the M3 DXF/FOV option CAD files can be imported over a network and be automatically compared to the actual part.
