HOFME 3000 Series

Optical Measuring Machine

FLEXIBILITY FOR SMALL & MEDIUM-SIZE COMPONENTS

Excellent measurement represents a key factor in every production process. However, quality inspection can be an expensive compromise, when involving great time and labour. In addition, manual checks by traditional
measurement systems may be a source of risk due to human failure. HOFME optical measuring machines are conceived to minimize those risks, improving efficiency and productivity directly on the production floor.

HOFME SERIES 3000, with its fixed Field of View, is ideal for both small and medium components dimensional control. Thanks to its 12 Mp Camera and perfect combination among lens, sensor and software, it can easily
adapt to a wide range of mechanical parts.

HOFME SERIES 3000 also presents a CNC version, with XY axes stroke, offering a great accuracy to inspect bigger components, larger than mm 92 x 48.Moreover, multisector ringlight offers a frontal illumination performing even on complex samples in terms of surface treatment or shape, and blind holes (greyscale technology).

ACCURACY FOR BIG PARTS WITH SMALL DETAILS

HOFME measuring machines are designed to be used within the production environment. Dimensional controls next to machine tools, and not only in metrology laboratory, ensures a reduction of non-compliance costs, as well
as a contraction of time spent in the final test phase and during the whole manufacturing process.

The synergy between Multi-Field of View technology and camera zooming system makes HOFME SERIES 6000 the ideal solution to measure big parts with minor details.
As Series 3000, HOFME SERIES 6000 offers a CNC version, ensuring high accuracy to inspect bigger components larger than mm 68 x 56. Multisector frontal illumination gives an additional great advantage on complex parts in terms of surface finish or shape, and blind holes (greyscale technology).

Lens calibration, light alignment, object plane control, adjustment and autofocusing tool combined with motorized
vertical axis ensure optimum performance by minimizing any measurement issues arising from system
asymmetry or misalignment.

Product Overview

The Vision Of Measurement

INSTANT
MEASUREMENT

Instant recognition and measurement of objects for fast inspection operations. For every new model, a recipe should be built based on the golden sample that has been selected and measured through mechanical probing or other methods of measurement.

MEASUREMENT
PROGRAM AUTO-SEARCH

Automatic recognition of the object and application of its specific pre-defined measurement program.

SELF-DETECTION OF
GEOMETRIC PRIMITIVES

Automatic identification of geometric primitives by the operator.

ADVANCED IMAGE
EDGE MANAGEMENT

Instant recognition and measurement of objects for fast inspection operations. For every new model, a recipe should be built based on the golden sample that has been selected and measured through mechanical probing or other methods of measurement.

SIMPLE FEATURES
CREATION TOOL

Guided creation of dimensions, geometric shapes and any other features through descriptions and commands, graphically suggested by the user interface. Easy management of CAD modelling elements (intersections, axes, perpendicularity, parallelism) or geometric nominal values and tolerances.

PATTERN
MATCHING

Creation of synthetic models from images: recognition of the object in any position and whatever rotation within the field of view. In CNC version, editing capabilities include axes positioning, illumination and camera settings relating to the part under inspection.

CROSSHAIR

Crosshair function (FoV and CNC version) ensures the analysis when the processing is difficult due to part/environmental conditions and automatic tools might not be enough. User-friendly graphic interface helps defining distances, diameters or angles.

SMART LIGHT CONTROL
INTEGRATION

Software compliance with pre-defined illumination control units. Management of illuminators (1, 4 or 8 sectors front light) by light control tool. Multi-sector ring lights smart control available where specific sectors are turned on.

STATISTICAL
REPORTS

Database recording of measurement data for easy checking and reviewing of historical and statistical trends. Data management, printing and exporting available.

ADVANCED SYSTEM
SYSTEM CALIBRATION
AND OPTIMIZATION

Calibration and optimization of all system variables to reach high accuracy and consistency thanks to a complete set of advanced tools. Maximum measurement repeatability guaranteed over the entire field of view.
