Witness the revolutionary new dimension measuring system VideoCAD Rapid: 15-18 July 2013, Leicester

Accurate and precise dimensional measurement in a matter of seconds.  We would like to invite you to witness this revolutionary new dimension measuring system VideoCAD Rapid between 15-18 July 2013 at our premises in Leicester:

Turn your wish list into reality with ultra fast, precision dimensional inspection of all your production throughput. This new, high definition 2D measurement device offers unsurpassed measurement speed: the acquisition and analysis of measured data takes only a few milliseconds. 

Unprecedented Speed:

  • Your component can be placed freely on the glass and you’re off with a tap of the multi-touch screen
  • No compromise – measurements so fast  that 100% throughput inspection is now a reality

Stress-free Operation:

  • Intuitive multi-touchscreen software in widescreen format for ease of viewing. 
  • Clearly structured user interface with no hidden sub-menus
  • Accessible and repeatable across your workforce

Detailed, high accuracy measurements:

  • 4 step motorised zoom lens for reliable measurement even of minute component features
  • 4 different fields of view for spot-on measurement                                                                                               


The VideoCAD is ideally suited for measuring profiles made of:

Plastic ... aluminium ... wood ... rubber ... metal ... stamped /punched parts ... templates ... seals ... layouts

and many more components which are mass produced.

We would like to invite you to witness this revolutionary new dimension measuring system between 15-18 July at our premises in Leicester.  We will also be showing the compact, high resolution Digital Profile Projector and will be pleased to measure any samples you would like to bring or send.
