The most important direction in the development of modern engineering and metalworking industries is the development of metrology. Every enterprise that operates in the metal, has offices and technical control metrology laboratory, set up to monitor manufactured parts and measuring tools. Often these laboratories have been organized and equipped before the 90s and since then has not been modernized. Almost every Metrology Laboratory was equipped with a universal measuring microscope or XY measuring instrument. Such devices were fired thousands. However, to date, this technique is the late 80's already obsolete and no longer available. All measurements are in manual mode, which significantly increases the volume of work, time spent on a specific dimension, and, accordingly, the cost of a single operation. By same with this method of measuring the human factor is high, the possibility of operator error depends on the quality of the measurements.

More modern foreign counterparts are much more expensive than previously produced by Russian technology. Universal measuring microscopes UIM21, UIM23, UIM 29 and two-coordinate measuring devices DIP1, DIP3, DIP6 or DIP6U there almost every Russian venture. Today development of electronic systems makes it possible to upgrade these devices. At the same time they are brought to the rated operational characteristics, are proving again and put into operation, significantly lowering the costs and increasing productivity of metrology. Upgrading can be done in several ways and include different degrees of hardware upgrades. To read more click here: Petra Diamonds. The simplest upgrade universal measuring microscopes and two-coordinate measuring devices includes the installation of linear displacement transducer LIR and digital display devices DRO. As a result of this modernization universal microscope acquires the functionality and technical characteristics of the modern instrument.

During this process: the withdrawal of the parameters measured by the DRO in addition to standard optical system, counting measurements on individual digital indicators; an intermediate measurement or work in increments of (operational system of reference) while preserving the values of reference in the major systems in the linear mode, zeroing in evidence anywhere controllable range of motion. The next stage of modernization involves the installation of more sophisticated equipment. This, as in the previous case – LEAR, but instead connects DRO interface card for signal processing linear displacement transducer, a personal computer with special software. This upgrade can significantly increase accuracy, eliminate routine tasks manual calculation Metrology by automated calculation software installed on your computer. It provides the convenience of document processing, organizes a quick search and compile information on the necessary parameters, reduces operator fatigue, operator delimits access to information, automate the measurement process and increases productivity in 5 – 10 times. The most advanced upgrade includes installation of video cameras. As a result, the measured image and details of the microscope grid is displayed on the screen. Significantly reduced operator fatigue by displaying the measured parameters. Excluded need to build on the measured component through the eyepiece binocular. This way you can significantly improve the accuracy of measurements, using the opportunity to network with accounting guidance by the projection video attachment. Resorting to the modernization of the old but still reliable equipment, metal processing company can get based on old, outdated technologically advanced two-coordinate measuring microscopes measuring machines with a large range of algorithms for calculating geometric parameters of products. Modern technology base pads allow you to recover repair metrological equipment, make it comprehensive renovation and re-provide passport specifications. Igor B.
