Boulder Imaging metrology inspection system offers real-time part measurement

Jan. 17, 2012
The Benchmark system provides micron-level in-line (or off-line), real-time part measurement and conformance to specification for any part or material.

The Benchmark system provides micron-level in-line (or off-line), real-time part measurement and conformance to specification for any part or material. The system provides accuracy exceeding 5 µm. Using a Centralized Inspection Point Technology (CIPT) approach, the system allows rapid parts changeover with an automated set-up and self-calibration capability.

Boulder Imaging, Inc. announces revolutionary in-line metrology inspection system: Vision Inspector™ Benchmark

Boulder, Colorado – NEWS RELEASE, October 6, 2011 – Boulder Imaging, Inc., a leading imaging solutions company for machine vision applications, is releasing the in-line version of its Benchmark metrology inspection system.

The Benchmark system provides micron-level in-line (or off-line) part measurement and conformance to specification for virtually any part or material in real-time. The system provides accuracy exceeding 5 microns and inspection speed far beyond current CMM and laser-based measurement systems, allowing the system to be placed in-line for typical inspection applications. It can be used for first article inspection, reverse engineering, measurement of 100% of parts, or spot inspection. Benchmark also provides detailed reports for customers and ISO compliance.

“The Benchmark system is a quantum leap ahead of current laser or probe-based CMM technologies not only in terms of speed, but also inspection capability and flexibility” says Carlos Jorquera, Founder and CEO of Boulder Imaging. “Our advanced solution provides manufacturers from virtually any industry the ability to perform 100% parts inspection for measurement and conformance to spec in-line at line speeds for highly engineered and precision parts. For example, one of our customers replaced 5 CMM machines with a single Benchmark system, reducing inspection on a single part from 40 minutes to 5 seconds. Needless to say, their management team and investors are delighted with the massive cost and time savings,” add Jorquera.

Employing Boulder Imaging’s revolutionary CIPT™ (Centralized Inspection Point Technology) approach, the Benchmark system is capable of rapid parts change-over with automated set-up and self-calibration capability that allows customers to change parts and/or inspection criteria in seconds. CIPT also allows the inspection cell to be placed on the production line quickly and easily, or moved to another position with the same ease of set-up.

Boulder Imaging will be present at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) on October 17 – 20, 2011 in Toronto, Ontario and at the FABTECH show on November 14 – 17 in Chicago, Illinois. At these shows, they will be discussing and showing the benefits of the new Benchmark system.
