X-360: the new Vici Vision machine designed for dental implant and micromechanical manufacturers
For over ten years, VICIVISION has specialized in the production of optical measuring machines for turned
and cylindrical parts across multiple industries.
A VICIVISION optical machine measures the external profile of cylindrical components both statically and dynamically in a matter of seconds: from simple diameters, lengths, and threads to more complex form errors.
These unique advantages in technology and capability have returned a strong international response from dental implant and micro-mechanical manufactures. Because of this, VICIVISION has developed a specific product line to address increasing demand.
The use of non-contact metrology solutions reduces inspection times while increasing throughput and yield
High resolution images combined with improved ergonomics for small components address the demands of dental implant and micro-mechanical manufacturers.
Limiting yourself to small components could be a short-lived option. A machine with a wide measuring range is the preferable choice, provided there are no compromises on resolution, accuracy, and the ability to detect the smallest details.
X-360. A crossover combining the ability to capture the smallest details while offering a large field of view.
The resolution used by machines designed to measure dental implants is now available in a larger
measurement volume (300 x 60 mm) typical for precision small parts produced on swiss screw machines
and multi-spindle lathes.
The result is a unique solution to the market, which provides dental implant manufacturers with a single instrument capable of measuring both small and large components, such as those used in spinal and orthopedic surgery.
Micro-mechanical manufacturers can also benefit from a resolution capable of measuring very small radii, bevels, grooves, and threads, while still having a system capable of larger dimensional measurements (300x 60mm).
The unrivalled resolution combined with a large field of view completes VICIVISION's exclusive "full image"
function. The "full image" function captures the entire profile of the part loaded in the machine with maximum resolution, displaying and saving all the measurement data.
Not only is the measurement data saved but so is the entire profile of the part.
This function enables the technician to save the image of the part so that it can be inspected at a later date. Should additional information be requested, measurements can be made by using the profile of the part without having to get the actual part remeasured.
The machine offers unobstructed, well-lit front access to facilitate loading and unloading operations, even for the smallest parts.
The innovations don´t stop here, we have focused heavily on the ergonomics of the product to facilitate easy measurement of small components. Particular attention was paid to the reduction of preventative maintenance. The optics housing are made of stainless steel rather than aluminum to prevent contamination and to facilitate easier cleaning.
The low friction bearings in the upper tailstock reduces the rotational slipping effect between the tailstock and the work piece in low force conditions. Across all high precision industries components being inspected are often delicate, so clamping force must also be very delicate as to not deform the parts being measured.
As an alternative to mounting parts between centers, the machine can be equipped with a large selection of fixturing solutions for pieces without centering holes.
The automated control option includes I/O communication and pneumatic fixturing systems (both chuck and tailstock).
For the most advanced integrations, the VVLinx communication software is available with closed loop feedback control to your machining centers. The data collected by the system is processed and sent back to the lathe (in the form of tool offsets) to keep production in tolerance and to help facilitate tooling changes.
Thanks to our experience developing industrial automation solutions SARIKI and VICI VISION we can satisfy the needs of robotic integration and interface with MES and SPC software.
