TOKYO – Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the “NEXIV” CNC Video Measuring System model range, “VMZ-S4540” and “VMZ-S6555” suitable for inline, automated dimensional measurement.
The CNC video measurement system “NEXIV” can automatically measure the dimensions of components using Nikon’s world renowned optical and image processing technology. By analyzing the captured image and detecting feature edges with high speed, both accurately and repeatably, it is possible to quickly measure components with complex features.
With the demand for measuring smaller components with higher performance, and with the increase in the number of electronic components installed for automobiles, there is a need for video measuring systems to measure more components at higher speeds in the automated production line.
The “NEXIV VMZ-S” series has increased throughput, while maintaining and enhancing the performance of the previous model, the “NEXIV VMZ-R” series. In November 2020, Nikon released the first in the lineup of new VMZ-S systems, the “VMZ-S3020″, which is part of the fourth generation of the “NEXIV” series. The “VMZ-S4540” and “VMZ-S6555” now join this lineup, and are suitable for medium and large components or for loading multiple components.
Now the full lineup of “NEXIV VMZ-S” series is available, it is possible to select the most suitable machine according to customer’s applications and installation environment. In addition, by utilizing “Remote Control SDK” software (optional), multiple “NEXIV” systems can be integrated into the production line and systems can be operated remotely.
