Easy and accurate measurements optimized for 3D parts

Nikon has drawn on its state-of-the-art digital technologies to produce a highly affordable automated measurement system. The iNEXIV VMA-2520’s design is optimized for easy use as well as repeatable and accurate measurement of 3D parts.

nikon metrology vision systems compact and lightweight iNEXIV VMA 2520

Compact and lightweight

The iNEXIV VMA-2520 is a powerful bench-top system designed to use minimum factory floor space. The main body has a footprint of only 565 W x 690 D x 740mm H (computer and controller separate) and weighs only 72kg (158.7 lb), yet it still has a 250 x 200 x 200mm measuring capability.

Long working distance

The newly developed optical system features a super long 73.5mm working distance for all magnifications. This allows sufficient three dimensional clearance for Z-axis measurements even at high magnification.

Powerful VMA AutoMeasure software

Automeasure is Nikon’s powerful measuring software platform. It provides various functions to easily conduct tasks ranging from setup, teaching programs and measurements, to evaluations.

High-speed, highly-accurate Laser AF (optional)

In addition to the standard Vision AF, an optional high-speed Laser AF with a long 63mm working distance is available. It provides fast focusing and Z-axis measurements regardless of the surface shape of your workpiece.

nikon metrology vision systems touch probe option iNEXIV VMA 2520

Touch probing measurement (Optional)

The iNEXIV VMA-2520 accepts the Renishaw TP20 or TP 200 Touch Probe system, making surface and side coordinate measurement of complicated 3D parts possible, in areas that vision sensing hardware could not be used.
Users can take full advantage of the multi-sensor capability when installing CMM-Manager on the iNEXIV system. Main features are collision-free CAD-based path definition, virtual path simulation and accurate feature measurement for both tactile and vision probing.
