Schut Optical Metrology


 

Eley Metrology are the exclusive UK distributors for the De Meet range of 3D CNC optical CMM measuring equipment with video and mutli-sensor. The DeMeet CMM machines are designed, developed and produced by Schut Geometrical Metrology after more than 50 year’s experience in the field of precision measuring instruments and systems. The software, mechanics, electronics and the integration of new ideas create the basis of this multifunctional measuring equipment. Our objective was to develop a series of video and multi-sensor measuring machines for general quality control with a market-matched measuring range.

The DeMeet CMM machines are designed with a fixed bridge construction. The application of quality components ensure excellent performance and high accurate measurements. With an excellent price-performance ratio the DeMeet measuring machines break the barrier for high precision quality control on the production floor as well as in measuring laboratories, and offers an attractive alternative for various measuring systems.

Machines

When you want to determine the quality strategy for your production, more and more you need to measure dimensions that cannot be measured with conventional instruments. The DeMeet-220 is developed as personal CMM machines with a desktop design. For the inspection of larger products or for measuring a batch of products in one measuring cycle the DeMeet-400 series is the all-round measuring machine, with the DeMeet-705 at the end of the range. The DeMeet CMM machines are designed with a fixed bridge construction. The application of quality components ensure excellent performance and high accurate measurements.

Optics

With non-contact measuring, the measurements are performed without the risk of product deformation or damage. In addition to this, the measuring area (image view) defined by the magnification of the applied lens benefits measuring speed and accuracy. Within the image view a very high accuracy can be achieved.
A Sony CCD color camera is integrated for a clear image with an excellent contrast and a high resolution.Telecentric optics are supplied as a standard to avoid perspective image distortion. The DeMeet is either equipped with Nikon or Leica-Design optics for a brilliant image with high contrast. The lenses generate a display magnification from 40x to 400x.

Illumination

The DeMeet CMM machines are standard equipped with 3 light sources; a programmable ringlight, coaxial- and backlight as optimal illumination is essential for accurate measurements.
The ring light consisting of a 3 ring LED pattern, which can be controlled per individual ring, segment and cell, is standard supplied for optimal light configuration. The ringlight can be set in intensity and angle to achieve the best contrast with clearly defined edges.The LED based backlight and coaxial light can be adjusted in intensity. The coaxial light can be used for illumination inside deep located structures.

Multi Sensor Technology

The DeMeet range is multi-sensor therefore combined non-contact and contact measuring is achievable. When measuring certain features encounters the physical limits of non-contact measurement, the DeMeet machines can be additionally equipped with a touch probe system. Applications of multi-sensor measuring are among others in the precision engineering, medical, plastics and electronics industry.
With the DeMeet Combo model both principles are integrated and measurements can be performed by the optical and the probing system. As standard a Renishaw TP20 with a 5-way stylus configuration is supplied.

Software

Approve for DeMeet is a true multi-sensor software package. It has been developed from the ground up keeping the measurement inputs of the different measuring devices to just the necessary differences. All the measuring results of video and touch probes can be displayed, reported, exported and used in constructs together, and are dynamically updated. The measuring results can also be viewed together in a 3D view.
Approve for DeMeet is designed to be a user-friendly software package, but is still flexible and very elaborate when required to measure many products. High accurate measurements in 2D and/or 3D can be done for all kinds of industries like precision mechanics, medical, plastics or electronics to improve quality control.
