Keyence’s IM Series is an innovative measurement system that is revolutionizing dimension measurements with just two simple steps — place and press. By placing a part on the stage and pressing a button, the system can accurately measure up to 99 measurements on 100 parts in just three seconds. Its speed and ease of use significantly reduces inspection time, making it a top choice for a wide range of measurement applications, from in-process inspection and laboratory testing to pre-shipment and incoming inspection. Customers across the globe are realizing the system’s many advantages.
Increased productivity: The IM Series works so quickly that inspection time is significantly reduced when compared to conventional testing methods like optical comparators and micrometers. This means that more testing can be done in a shorter period of time.
Significant savings: The system is not only measuring parts, it’s automatically recording and saving the results as the measurement is performed. This eliminates manually recording the data by hand and, as a result, reduces the man-hours needed to create inspection records. Its ease of use means training time is reduced as well, in addition to inspection time and the number of personnel required for that. This results in major savings in both time and money.
Accuracy: The IM Series offers accurate measurements of sections with complicated profiles, such as chamfers and curved surfaces, thanks to its programmable ring-illumination unit, which stores the type and application method of lighting used for each part. This allows stable and consistent measurement by accurately extracting the profile under the same lighting conditions. In addition, the system has been reinforced with a 3D measurement model that accurately measures height and depth.
Automatic measurement: The system allows users to program specific points for measurement simply by specifying what dimension they are looking for. The IM Series will automatically populate the points to be measured on the part, making measuring easier and quicker than ever before.
