Custom-Made Measuring Cells
Make the first step towards converting your factory to a smart factory with a quality control unit, designed to fit your needs. These solutions prepare you for the future of manufacturing by implementing state of the art IoT ready machines into your workplace, be it in the metrology room, the workshop, or even on the production line.
Dedicated to optimizing your current production process, these tailor-made measuring systems enhance not only the efficiency of your manufacturing but the quality of the items produced.
For more information make sure to join us on October 21st, at 10 AM CEST for a detailed overview of our showcase model, performed by none other than Pralhad Thapa - Project Manager here at Mitutoyo Europe.
Our Showcase Model
We would like to present to you a state-of-the-art combination of our finest measuring technology.
Dedicated to production facilities of all sizes, this automated solution makes them smarter, more efficient, and incredibly user friendly.
In order to highlight Mitutoyo’s competence in the field of IoT, Industry 4.0, and automation;
Mitutoyo in cooperation with KOMEG and FANUC has developed a Mitutoyo Smart Factory Cell. The Mitutoyo Smart Factory Cell is a state-of-the-art combination of modern industrial equipment, applying four different measuring technologies and an inspection system.
The Mitutoyo Smart Factory Cell consists of the following:
• MiSTAR 555 Shop Floor CMM
• MiScan VMM
• Formtracer AVANT
• 3x FANUC robots
• Conveyor Belt
• FIELD system - FANUC Industrial IoT system
Aside from the larger measurement and movement components in the cell, there are also various types of sensors to aid in making it entirely automatic, flexible, and efficient. For the real-time data analysis and monitoring of the cell, the following software are used: MeasurLink, Space4Win, PMA-StatusMonitor, Remote Manager, and FormEio.
A Mitutoyo smart factory cell brings connectivity, quality, and efficiency at your production site or in your metrology room. Perfect for optimizing your production processes, these custom made measuring units can fit anywhere, no matter the shape or size.
This particular cell is powered by:
The Measuring Components Implemented
MiSTAR555 555 Shop Floor CMM
The MiSTAR 555 is a compact shop floor CNC coordinate measuring machine, featuring high resistance to hostile environments while boasting a compact design. Due to its smart capabilities, this powerful CMM is often requested during the design phase of our custom cells.
The MiSCAN vision system is a multiple sensor microscopic-form measurement system, using combined technologies of coordinate and vision measurement system technology.
This particular vision system utilizes the same image head as the Quick Vision series, Mitutoyo's best-selling vision measuring system. The Quick Vision Apex lighting system is also incorporated, providing multiple lighting functions and excellent evaluation software to provide high performance.
The FORMTRACER Avant is Mitutoyo’s next-generation form measurement system that can be used to measure advanced contour and surface roughness features, all in one machine. With high precision, speed, flexibility, and efficiency, the new FORMTRACER Avant Series is a great addition to any QA department.
The HR-600 series revolutionizes conventional testing machines, being the first Mitutoyo model with a head moving at a speed of 10 mm/s within a 210 mm range.
In addition to being able to perform both Rockwell and Brinell hardness testing on a single machine, it can also test the hardness of plastics. As for other testing standards, it can perform indentation Brinell and Vickers hardness testing, which does not require image measurement.
The Mitutoyo TAGLENS – an acronym for “Tunable Acoustic Gradient Index of Refraction” – varies the focal length of an optical system with a frequency of 70 kHz.
Not requiring any mechanical power to control the focal distance, a standing wave generated by piezo signals triggers continuous and ultra-fast adaptations of focus. Combined with a wide field of focus telecentric lens, the TAG Lens serves as a key component for ultra-fast vision inspection applications in many industries, for rapid QR code reading or defect and tolerance inspection in quality management systems.
MeasurLink is an easy to use data application management software family. It combines real-time data acquisition, online statistical analysis, integrated network,s and the exchange of quality information in a comprehensive data management solution. When inspecting in the factory, there is data produced for analysis, corrective action, and various other reporting needs. As the backbone of your quality efforts, MeasurLink is guaranteed to reduce your production costs and increase your bottom line.
With the ability to link and manage multiple "islands" of inspection inside a centralized database of part information, statistical data, gauge information, processes, etc.
Smart Solutions From a Name You Can Trust
