Precision requirements for work pieces are becoming more demanding and are often in the micrometer range. This means that requirements for master workpieces for gaging benches and machines as used in the automotive industry are also increasing. The VideoCheck® V HA, like all Werth machines, is traceable and can be used to calibrate the calibration masters at the factory. If the quality management system requires a DAkkS certificate, the machine can be calibrated by Werth’s own DAkkS lab in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Werth is the first and only manufacturer to provide DAkkS calibration certificates for optical, and tactile, and computed tomography coordinate measuring machines. DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle) is the national accreditation body of the Federal Republic of Germany. It is legally mandated to carry out accreditations of conformity assessment bodies.

With its solid granite construction, special air-bearing technology, and thermally stable scale system, the VideoCheck® V HA achieves measurement uncertainty in the range of tenths of microns. The high-precision machine has an integrated vertical rotary axis to prevent heavy work pieces such as shafts and tools from sagging under their own weight.

In addition to external dimensions, the flexible 3D machine can also measure a number of other features, such as teeth, transverse holes, etc. The VideoCheck® V HA is also available for workpieces up to 1000 mm in length and 320 mm in diameter. The combination of image processing and the SP80 tactile sensor allow for the very highest measurement precision.
