Heidenhain’s new Quadra-Chek 3000 metrology digital readout (DRO) is designed for measuring 2D geometrical features quickly and easily, utilizing technology that company says previously has only been available on PC systems. The first release of this evaluation unit, which will be available early in 2016, is suited for measuring microscopes and manual video machines.

The unit’s modern video tools evaluate the camera image, detect edges and identify measuring points, then it displays the results graphically on its touchscreen. Right next to it are clearly drawn operating controls with available functions such as Measure Magic for fast automatic measuring. A Part View function enables the user to design further geometry elements easily and intuitively directly on the graphic display.

According to the company, the DRO is well-suited for harsh manufacturing environments, featuring a flat, sturdy aluminum housing; specially hardened glass for the touchscreen; an integrated power supply; and fanless passive cooling. The back panel offers several connections and interfaces, including USB and Ethernet.
