Visual inspection pioneer launches DRV at SOUTHTEC SC.
SOUTHTEC, BOOTH 2828 October 22nd, 2019. Vision Engineering Inc. will unveil a revolutionary, globally patented, digital 3D stereoscopic display technology at SOUTHTEC, Greenville, South Carolina October 22nd - 24th.
Vision Engineering’s DRV (Deep Reality Viewer) creates stereo high definition 3D images without using a monitor or requiring operators to wear headsets or specialist glasses: images appear as if ‘floating’ in front of a mirror.
DRV offers users the well-known Vision Engineering advantages of ergonomics and optimized user interfaces while ensuring full interaction with other local or remote users and other tools/PCs or complementary analytical equipment.
Vision Engineering anticipates that this unique, first-to-market device will be particularly valuable to organizations that model and test components in 3D, as well as facilitating improvements in manufacturing processes such as PCB inspection and reworking. DRV has the particular advantage for multi-site companies of offering real-time, full HD 3D stereo images to multiple users in different locations at the same time (commonly known as “daisy-chaining”).
Manufacturing companies have tried to exploit the potential offered to them by consumer-driven technological trends in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and 3D polarised/shutter glass viewing. Along with the advantages of these breakthrough technologies, they have experienced substantial drawbacks in sensory isolation, disorientation and resolution.
Modern manufacturing techniques involve multi-site communicability in real-time. The latest trends of A.I. the I.o.T and the cascade effect of Blockchain require information to be accessible to multiple users, at the same time, with the same fidelity.
Developed to address quality control and production requirements in sectors including electronics, aerospace, automotive and medical industries, DRV offers full, real-time transferability of information to multi-site manufacturers, designers or users of multi-tier development and logistic capabilities.
DRV carries on the company’s 60-year long tradition of creating ergonomic, high-quality visual inspection and metrology systems that reduce operator fatigue and improve accuracy, consistency and productivity, but, critically, exploits modern digital capability to communicate across substantial distances.
Using Vision Engineering’s globally patented TriTeQ3 digital 3D display technology, the DRV-Z1 (Zoom model 1) incorporates a zoom microscope module and is the first device of its class to be launched by the manufacturer.
DRV-Z1 is designed to advance the quality control and production process, by enabling operators to view magnified subjects in 3D, in unprecedented detail, without the need for additional viewing apparatus.
Commenting on the technological breakthrough, Mark Curtis, managing director of Vision Engineering said, “Over the past 60 years Vision Engineering has built its reputation on the innovation, quality, performance and ergonomics of our visual inspection and metrology systems. DRV-Z1 provides enhanced 3D visualization and overcomes current problems with 3D modeling and inspection systems. By amalgamating our existing technologies, we’ve delivered an entirely new concept to our existing customer base, as well as opening up opportunities in fresh markets.”
