Micro-Vu Range

Multiple measurement sensors in one system for super-fast measurement.

The Micro-Vu systems are a collection of highly-accurate metrology devices that require little operator interference and deliver consistent results.

Why use a multi-sensing system?

Optical measurement systems can help manufacturers to improve repeatability while reducing measurement time — the systems can take thousands of points in seconds. Optical systems can also deliver precise measurements without coming into contact with the product, which is particularly useful when measuring the surface material of a part that a probe could easily damage.

Tactile probing can be used to inspect any hard-to-reach spaces such as bores, tubes and edge breaks.

Laser attachments allow fast point data collection provides points clouds when they are required.

After scanning, the Micro-Vu Inspec measurement software will combine results from all of the systems sensors.

Rotary options allow the part to be held and rotated to access other areas of the part optically.

New models now have OCR, barcode and pattern recognition for a library of your parts, an even faster zoom, as well as an external makeover.

Micro-Vu features


Micro Vu Excel Optical CMM
  • The systems are highly accurate, starting from 2 μm accuracy
  • Micro-Vu machines can handle all types of materials, including black, white or reflective services
  • The illumination options makes the measurement of otherwise hard-to-measure shiny parts simple.
  • It requires low operator intervention — simply click to operate
  • Reduces measurement time when compared with tactile probe measurement alone
  • Reduces reporting time as data is collected to populate a report automatically

Applications of Micro-Vu systems

These coordinate measuring systems are used to measure a wide variety of materials parts and assemblies. Manufacturers can use these systems to measure medium and large parts, but the system will accept most part sizes.

The Micro-vu range is best used to inspect parts such as:

  • Machine parts
  • Injection moulds
  • Plastic parts
  • Printed circuit boards
  • PCB masks
  • Sheet metal
  • O-rings
