Optical comparator – instant measurement system

Keyence Corporation of America


Keyence’s IM-7000 series image dimension measurement system, with newly developed high-speed and high-precision stage, offers a measurement field of view that is 200mm × 200mm (7.87" × 7.87") and twice the field of view can be measured at 3x the speed of previous generations.

Innovations in the structures of the stage system and lens unit have improved support for the measurement of tall targets. Users can accurately measure dimensions previously impossible with vision systems while the newly developed light probe unit has a deep-set shape and rounded corners, allowing for easy and accurate measurement even of targets with shapes and processing states that made them difficult to measure for measurement systems using conventional images.

After placing the part on the stage, press the button and in 3 seconds users receive 99 measurements on up to 100 parts with an OK/NG judgment, significantly reducing quality inspection time.

Using the IM Series' advanced optical design technology and high-speed image processing technology, measurements are now consistent regardless of who's operating the system.

Just open the program, place the part, press the measure button, and the system will automatically remember the dimensions that need require measurement, illumination conditions, and automatically focus the part.

The IM automatically records and saves results as the measurement is performed.

Complete inspection and analysis reports automatically save on the system without having to manually record the data.
