The L.S. Starrett Company has enhanced its AVR300 Multi-Sensor Vision System with a large 2.36" (60 mm) FOV-dedicated 0.14x telecentric lens for micron-level resolution and accurate field-of-view (FOV) measurements. This is the largest FOV to date for Starrett. IMTS attendees can see the AVR-FOV at Booth #135044 located in the Quality Pavilion, East Hall in McCormick Place, Chicago IL from Sept 12- 17, 2022.
Nondestructive examination (NDE) of ferrous and nonferrous materials has long proved an effective maintenance and anomaly characterization tool for many industries. Recent research has expanded its applicability to include the inspection of large, open gear drives. Difficulties inherent in other NDE methods make them time-consuming and labor-intensive. They also present the user with the environmental problem of the disposal of used oil. The eddy current method addresses these problems.
