Software

Choose from the following metrology software options:

ND 1200 Microprocessor (formerly QC-200)

The intuitive ND 1200 microprocessor can be used by both shift workers or advanced users providing powerful yet simple data processing and reporting of routine measurement.

  • ND 1200 is ideal for measuring common component features, such as circles, angles, lines, arcs and distances
  • Designed with ease of operation in mind, ideal for shift workers, or for simple data processing and reporting of routine measurements

M3 metrology software

  • Simple, yet powerful feature measurement.
  • No multiple menu software options to distract the operator.
  • CAD-like Part View mark-up for easy inspection of the measured data.
  • Direct Compare option to allow simple CAD import of overlay drawings to check those complex geometric parts for a simple Go/No Go decision.

IK 5300 advanced metrology software (formerly QC-5000)

  • Premium software package
  • Power software option provides advanced software features, such as custom formulas, conditional programming, Statistical Process Control (SPC) or RUNS databases (for long-term tracking of component performance)
  • Multi-feature modelling with advanced data import, export and analysis features

Overview

From simple manual measurement to multi-feature modelling with advanced data import, export and analysis, Hawk Elite offers a powerful and flexible solution to meet the most demanding measuring requirements.

Applications

- Critical parts, such as medical devices, military, aerospace, or satellite components
- Lower volume, higher value components, including general precision engineered parts, automotive and motorsport components, prototype parts etc
- Low contrast components, e.g. coloured plastics
- Difficult-to-view features, such as radius edges
- Where quick, one-off measurements are required
- Where simultaneous visual inspection is beneficial

Improved Ergonomics = Increased Productivity + Profits

Featuring Vision Engineering's patented Dynascope™ technology, the Hawk Elite is free from restrictive eyepieces. As a result, user fatigue and eyestrain are significantly reduced. Not only does this benefit the operator but also the business. Quality of work is improved, and productivity is boosted, resulting in significant cost savings and increased profits.

Superior Optics

Accurate non-contact measurement of precision components requires high resolution, high contrast images, combined with a precision measuring stage.

Hawk Elite utilises Vision Engineering's patented Dynascope™ technology to provide enhanced surface definition for fast and simple measurement. The superb optical clarity also allows detailed visual inspection to be performed simultaneously.

Unlike systems which digitise the optical information, Hawk Elite employs a pure optical image, together with the best image recognition system known to man – the human brain. So, you can have complete confidence in your measurements, even for difficult-to-view components.

Measuring Stage Calibration, with NLEC

Hawk Elite is available with a range of high specification, high performance measuring stage options, providing a measuring range of up to 400mm x 300mm (16" x 12").

Every measuring stage has factory-set non-linear error correction (NLEC) calibration to ensure optimum accuracy, which is traceable to NPL/NAMAS/NIST standards for the purposes of ISO9000.

Combined with 0.5µm resolution measuring encoders, this provides a system repeatability of up to 2µm * for complete confidence in your results.
* when using 200mm x 150mm measuring stage (200x system magnification, using controlled conditions).
