Schneider MesstechnikProfile Projectors & Measurement Projectors (Shadowgraphs)

We offer a range of profile projectors (shadowgraphs), measurement projectors and digital projectors with workstage and software configurations for a variety of component sizes and complexities to suit your requirements:

1. DP Digital Profile Projector

Our digital profile projector gives fast, precision measurement of 2D contours and the ability to import DXF files directly onto the screen. Comprising CCD camera, touch screen PC and a precise measuring stage, this tabletop DP200 design can handle components up to 20kg in weight and 200x100mm in size.  Other models are available for up to 500x200mm in size.

It is simple to use giving extremely fast dimensional measurement data through its intuitive software.

This new digital processor allows you to import your DXF drawing onto the screen and position it accurately over the image of your workpiece. Circles, lines and angles can all be defined directly on-screen allowing high quality measurement at top speed.

Maximum workpiece size (XYZ):

200x100x100mm (DP200)

up to 500x200x200mm (DP500)

Maximum workpiece weight: 20kg

With the addition of an integral edge sensor in the beam path of the projector to determine the exact edges of the workpiece (completely independently of ambient light conditions) we have the Schneider range of measurement projectors.

  • Telecentric illumination and objectives reduce distortion (see spec below)
  • Both transmitted and incidental illumination for optimum focus
  • Digital readout and optional camera and image processing functions
  • Consistent quality of measurement results with no readjustment required
  • Optional CNC control for automatic workpiece measurement
  • Large range of optional fixtures and accessories for ease of use
