Grid Projector

Hits:UpdateTime:2014-01-15 13:36:30
Many surfaces (such as glass, clear plastic, and mirror-like finishes) create images with extremely low, or worse, nonexistent contrast. How can these be measured? With the Grid Projector accessory from OGP.
The Grid Projector is available for SmartScope ZIP, SmartScope Vantage, SmartScope ATS, and SmartScope Apex video measuring systems.
The Grid Projector works by projecting a grid pattern onto the surface of the part undergoing inspection. The system is designed so that the image of the grid will only appear in focus when the surface of the part is exactly coincident with the focal plane of the optics. The autofocus routine can then use the contrast contained in the grid image just as if it were present in the surface of the part. And since the autofocus algorithm is finely tuned to the characteristics of the grid image, repeatability is significantly improved.
