Aberlink 3D Vision Measurement Software

Enhance Your Aberlink CMM with Vision technology

The Aberlink Vision Software module enhances the capability of Aberlink 3D with a set of powerful vision measurement tools.

Originally written to work exclusively with Aberlink's revolutionary CMM Camera system, allowing the use of touch probe and non-contact on the same machine, the advanced vision software module is now used extensively by many other vision machine manufacturers.

Optical Accuracy

Measure geometric and complex shapes easily, features, scan profiles and inspect threads using high-accuracy edge detection and high-speed optical scanning. Simulate crosshairs and overlays, and control the camera and light settings, all from within the software.

Featuring, fully automatic edge detection tools which can be used in both manual and CNC mode ensuring fast and repeatable results without relying on the skill of the operator.

Dimensions can either be called up by clicking on the measured features in the normal way, or alternatively measurement points can be best-fitted against a DXF file. As well as edge detection the operator may use either full cross hairs or mouse cross hairs with other advanced tools available including "smart measure", centre line detection, an "all edge points" function, a "thread measure" tool and a "screen ruler" for quick measurements between any two points on the image.
