SIMS & Disk Inspection


We develop, sell and support software, systems and specialized hardware
components for machine vision, image analysis, visual inspection, general
defect detection and metrology. We are the manufacturer of the
VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator
Our products are both very powerful and very easy to use. They are being
applied to successfully solve a broad range of applications in a number of
different industries, including: electronics, semiconductors, Micro Electro
Mechanical Systems (MEMS) manufacturing, printed circuit boards,
aeronautics, aerospace & automotive, medical device manufacturing,
precision mechanical components and assemblies, packaging,
pharmaceutical, and many more.

500 Series

The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator (Patented & Other Patents Pending) is a fully-digital drop-in replacement for traditional optical comparators. It works directly with your part’s CAD data and doesn’t require and overlays.
The system is extremely easy to use, and thanks to its advanced, patented CAD Auto-Align™ and CAD Auto-Pass/Fail™ tools, operators can compare parts to their CAD data completely automatically, directly on the shop floor.
VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparators have an extensive measurement toolset and eliminate operator error. These very general-purpose inspection & measurement systems can automatically collect complete electronic documentation including measurements, statistics, Pass/Fail results, a high-resolution image of the part with its CAD overlay, etc.
The VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator can also be integrated into an
automated work cell and controlled via Ethernet or RS-232 communications.

Mounted with rotary Axis

Mounted with rotary Axis aligned either vertically or horizontally. Note that multiple rotary stages can also be used (to provide “Pan & Tilt” capability, for example). Custom fixturing is also available for turnkey projects.

700 Series
Vision Gauge 700 Series

The 700 Series VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator 5-Axis Inspection and Measurement Systems are the perfect solution for checking EDM – and Laser-Drilled Holes and Slots.

There are many reasons why the VisionGauge® Digital Optical Comparator is widely used by manufacturers across a broad range of industries (including aerospace and power generation) to check EDM and LASER-drilled drilled holes and slots:

  • 5 Axes of motion (X, Y, Z, Rotary Tilt) to
    properly view parts from all sides & angles
  • Fully-automated operation
  • No operator-to-operator variation
  •  Easy to program (can use your
    CAD data directly)
  • Fast, accurate & easy-to-use
  • Extensive set of measurement tools
  • Straightforward operator interface
    with bar code-reader and joystick
  • Intuitive software
  • Patented & patent pending technology
  • Powerful & innovative software tools
    for robust feature detection
  • Sharp, clear & ultra-high resolution image
  • Ultra-bright all-LED computer controlled
    multi-angle and multi-quadrant
    illumination is standard
  • High-resolution precision optics to make
    out very fine details with great clarity
  • Extended optical depth of field and extended
    working distance for maximum flexibility
