QP Toolbox


Silicon Designs has released the SDI model 1510 series of analog surface-mount accelerometers. The series offers general purpose vibration measurements at original equipment manufacturer volumes for aerospace, automotive, energy, industrial, oil and gas, and test and measurement applications.

The SDI model 1510 series incorporates a micromachined variable capacitive sensing element and custom integrated circuit. The accelerometer produces two analog voltages that vary proportionately according to measured acceleration levels. Series units respond to either alternating-current or direct-current acceleration.

Video measuring microscope

Mahr Federal’s video measuring microscope with image processing capability is designed for the measurement and dimensioning of geometric elements. The MarVision QM 300 incorporates an integrated charge-coupled device color camera with a 23-in. touchscreen display, and PC with keyboard and mouse.

Automatic edge detection allows low-contrast features to be measured, and a multi-touch function provides continuous measurements using either the touchscreen or a mouse. The QM 300 is a full-featured measuring station designed for close evaluation of cutting inserts or flat components, such as punch and stamped parts.

The automated video edge detection and multi-touch functions make the MarVision QM 300 suitable for a range of punched and flexible parts, plastic components, and electronic circuit boards.

Multi-element detector

Opto Diode has introduced the SXUVPS4, a multi-element detector with a 5 mm² active area in a quadrant configuration. Designed to resist radiation damage from high-intensity ultraviolet lasers, the SXUVPS4 photodiodes are ideal for laser alignment applications. The SXUV series of photodiodes can withstand four days of exposure without degradation in responsivity.

The photodiode features responsivity providing 0.125 to 0.02 A/W over a 10 to 200 nm wavelength range. The large circular detection surface is optimized for precise alignment of lasers with four elements, each offering 1.25 mm² active area.

InspectionXpert’s InspectionXpert OnDemand for computer-aided design (CAD) is a quality planning and documentation software platform that supports 3-D model-based and 2-D print-based formats. InspectionXpert OnDemand for CAD means end users who must create inspection packages can use the same workflow—regardless of input file format.

The software platform does not require a CAD license to view, balloon and extract inspection data for reporting. Manufacturers, machine shops and original equipment manufacturers use CAD programs to generate or view 2-D prints and 3-D models for manufacturing. Users can create quality inspection documents, such as first articles or in-process inspection reports with this software platform.

High-speed camera

The EoSens 25CXP from Mikrotron is a 25 megapixel high-speed camera. Its interface offers data transmission rates of up to 6.25 Gbit/s with a single-core cable, and up to 25 Gbit/s with up to four cores. The data transfer is performed using one cable with transmission distances more than 100 m.

The camera can deliver 880 frames per second (fps) at full high definition and at reduced resolution, offering up to 100,000 fps. The integrated shutter allows for the exposure of all pixels at the same time with the shortest exposure times of up to 1 μs. The continuously variable composition of the image field with regard to position and resolution offers application flexibility. The camera offers a color depth of 10 bit and a dynamic range of 53 db.

Coordinate-measuring machine

Hexagon Metrology has released the Leitz SIRIO Xi 6.8.8 coordinate-measuring machine for use in gear inspection centers. It is designed for the measuring gears and gear-cutting tools such as hob cutters, broaches, shaper cutters and shaving gears.

The Leitz SIRIO Xi offers a stylus changer with up to 24 magazine positions. It is ideal for networked manufacturing processes and serial production process control. The high-static overall mass with low center of gravity stabilizes the measuring machine against resistance to forces and vibrations. Thermal compensation minimizes temperature gradients allowing for process stability.
