Starrett Introduces Large Field of View Multi-Sensor Vision System
The L . S . Starrett Company , a global manufacturer of precision hand tools and gages , metrology systems and more , has enhanced its AVR300 Multi-Sensor Vision System with a 0.14 magnification lens featuring the largest field of view to date for Starrett on the AVR Series at 2.36 ” x 1.90 ” ( 60 mm x 48 mm ). For greater efficiency and accuracy , more of the part can be viewed in every image on the new AVR-FOV 0.14X system . Due to “ superimage ” technology , which allows multiple images to be stitched together to form one larger image , together with the system ’ s touch probe technology , the AVR-FOV 0.14X can accurately inspect a wide range of features on large or complex parts , as well as on multiple small parts .
The AVR-FOV 0.14X automated part programs deliver accurate results to the micron level in a matter of seconds with

The Starrett AVR-FOV
“ Go / No-Go ” tolerance zones , and data are provided in one easy-to-interpret report . These features allow metrology users in manufacturing facilities or QC labs to produce accurate , fast , and repeatable results .
“ Building on the success of the AVR300 multi-sensor system , now customers can measure and inspect a wider range of parts , including those that are complex with intricate features ,” said Mark Arenal , General Manager , Starrett Metrology Division , “ The interface on the AVR-FOV 0.14X is user friendly and intuitive so all users , including operators right on the shop floor , can complete the inspection process .”
Equipped with the M3 software package from MetLogix , a traditional mouse as well as a touchscreen monitor make user interaction easy and intuitive . Auto part recognition enables creating a part measurement program that comprises the desired features of a part for inspection , which can automatically be saved in the system or to a network . Programmable light output options can be built into the program as defined steps , including being called up as the part recognition program initiates . Once the program is created , placing that part within the camera ’ s field-of-view allows for the saved program to initiate and run the inspection . A Renishaw Touch Probe may also be utilized for quick acquisition of discreet points along a part ’ s profile as well as Z-axis measurements .
The AVR-FOV 0.14X has an X-Y-Z travel of 12 ” x 8 ” x 8 ” ( 300mm x 200mm x 200mm ).
