The new MM-200 measuring microscope from Nikon Instruments is specially designed for engineers, inspectors and operators, who require highly accurate measurements for precision parts. Offering economies in size, weight and price, this compact product also offers precision and accuracy for measuring a variety of metal, plastic and electronic parts in all industries, especially the automotive and electronics industries. Its space-saving and lightweight design allows the MM-200 to be used on the shop floor and inspection rooms alike.
Precise and easy-to-use, the MM-200 enables quick and accurate non-contact optical measurement. An integrated stage reduces the MM-200 footprint by 50%, while offering the same stage-travelling accuracy as the current high quality MM400/800 series. The MM-200’s economic, compact and lightweight design makes it ideal for machine tool shops and inspection rooms. The MM-200 is suitable for a wide variety of parts including: small-size die and moulds, drill bits, inserts, fine pitch connectors, medical devices, watch parts, gears and optical fibre parts.
A dedicated monocular optical head for the MM-200 is available for immediate measurement on the eyepiece on the production line, while a C-mount video head provides easy video monitoring. XY stage scale readout, illumination control and communication ports to external devices such as a PC or digital readout unit are operated via a control interface unit. Long-life, environmentally friendly, high-intensity white LED light sources are used for all illumination. Nikon’s DS-2Mv camera and E-Max software packages provide semi automated measurement, guiding easy geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. The E-Max DS-V system allows easy- to-use advanced video edge-detection technologies. New digital templates for concentric patterns, threads and involute gear teeth with different modules, made from 2D CAD data, enable quick go/no-go comparison inspection as well as digital image archiving.
