Taking optical metrology to the floor

Optical Gaging Products (OGP), a leading manufacturer of optical and precision multi-sensor metrology systems for industrial quality control, has launched a floor model addition to its SmartScope E-Series family of automatic digital zoom metrology systems, the SmartScope E45.

With the launch of the benchtop model SmartScope E7 in September 2022, OGP reimagined its trusted SmartScope line-up to be accessible for all skill levels and budgets. Along with E7, the E45 features the brand-new fixed lens ‘IntelliCentric’ optical system – a fully telecentric optical system providing super high-resolution images, perfectly suited for video edge detection metrology.

The digital zoom allows for instantaneous magnification changes, while the standard all-LED lighting system illuminates parts from all angles. E45 also features a generous stage to handle large parts or a variety of smaller parts.

Jim Stern, director of OGP applications engineering, explains: “SmartScope E45 combines innovative optical design, advanced camera technology, and OGP’s class-leading image processing algorithms.

“E45 has the same feature size range as mechanical zoom optical systems, but without moving parts, increasing throughput and system longevity. The IntelliCentric optical system produces outstanding optical performance at low zoom, with fantastic image quality, telecentricity, and distortion-free imaging.”

Founded in Rochester, New York, in 1945, OGP manufactures optical and multi-sensor measuring systems for leading manufacturers around the world, in a variety of industries including aerospace; automotive; defence; electronics; medical and plastics.

They rely on OGP metrology systems to monitor and improve product quality on the most critical parts and assemblies.
