Measurement in a Matter of Seconds, Accurate, Precise, Easy and Intuitive

The innovative 2D optical measuring device V-CAD rapid by Schneider Messtechnik has it all

Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik, a leading company in the field of production measurement technology, is presenting its new 2D optical measuring device V-CAD rapid – a reliable tool that is both mobile and compact. “Thanks to the intuition-based user interface of the M3 measuring soft-ware, measurements with V-CAD rapid can be performed with virtually a touch of the finger”, emphasises Uwe J. Keller, Marketing Director of Dr. Heinrich Schneider Messtechnik. And he ex-plains further: “The workpiece can be positioned freely in the coverage field, and the measurement process is started with a just a tap of the multi-touch screen of the panel PC. Within only a few seconds, the device provides comprehensive measurement results, complete with reporting! And, not to forget, with a sense of accuracy and precision that sets a new standard in this category of device.

V-CAD rapid features the following highlights:
• Automatic recognition of ruled (standard) geometries without pre-selection
• No need for manual workpiece alignment in the coverage field
• Four-step motorised zoom lens for reliable measurement even of minute workpiece features
• Measurement in a matter of seconds
• High accuracy and precision
• Mobile design
• Ready to use: Unpack – Switch on – Measure.

The comprehensive standard equipment of V-CAD rapid includes a 5-megapixel CCD B/W camera and a 4-step motorised zoom lens providing four different fields of view for spot-on measurement. The device also features a multi-touch panel PC equipped with WIN7, plus a LAN and WLAN net-work port and telecentric LED transmitted (diascopic) light illumination. The standard equipment is completed by a granite / aluminium sandwich design, an LED ring light for incident (episcopic) illumination, and a factory calibration certificate as a quality proof.

Due to its many outstanding features, V-CAD rapid is the epitome of a top-notch product. “After all, a measurement system that really meets the criteria of ‘compact – mobile – accurate – precise – easy – uncomplicated – reproducible’ must provide the user with measurable added value! These arguments were also the most convincing to the prospective buyers to whom we had previously presented V-CAD rapid“, reports Uwe J. Keller. “Their extremely positive response to our system is proof to us that we have chosen the right track because most of them had already tested the products of our competitors.”
