Dimensional Measurement System Specially Designed for Micro Part InspectionOptical Gaging Products (OGP) introduces the new SmartScope Apex Micro precision dimensional measurement system to the industrial marketplace. Apex Micro is a floor model fixed optics system, and features a state-of-the-art digital camera and digital zoom. The Apex Micro exhibited at IMTS 2010 was equipped with an OGP Feather Probe micro-probe with a 0.005 in. stylus and a TTL high accuracy laser for detailed high-resolution micro-measuring. A high-precision HPR air bearing rotary indexer with one arc-second accuracy mounted at a 33° angle demonstrated measurement of fuel injector nozzles with 0.009 in. diameter holes.

Like other OGP SmartScope systems, the Apex Micro excels at video measurement. Its digital zoom offers multiple magnifications, and a wide range of long working distance optical objectives are available. There are multiple system illumination sources, including the patented white LED SmartRing light, coaxial (TTL) white surface light, and green LED back light. Apex Micro is multisensor-ready, with available touch trigger probes for tactile measurement of hard-to-image part features, laser or the Rainbow Probe scanning white light sensor for non-contact surface contouring, or the unique Feather Probe micro-probe sensor, that can acquire data points with only milligrams of probing pressure.

Integrated OGP metrology software is known for its point-and-click ease of use as well as its power. MeasureMind 3D MultiSensor software provides full 3D measurement capabilities with programmable control of all sensors in any sequence, and complete data integration for detailed measurement verification of even the most complex/detailed parts. Optional software includes SmartFit 3D interactive fitting software, SmartProfile fitting software for GD&T environments, and several others for SPC, 3D CAD import, and custom report writing.
