What are vision measuring systems?

Starrett’s range of leading-edge vision measuring systems brings ease of use and highly repeatable measurement to the shop floor. Available in both manual and full CNC versions, with telecentric and field-of-view lenses and multiple lighting options, there is a Starrett system for almost any measurement challenge.

Vision-based measuring systems from Starrett can measure both 2D and 3D (with an optional touch probe) features quickly and easily and in doing so, automatically record programs for later use in automated measurement routines or tasks.

Vision based measuring systems range

Starrett are leaders in the development and manufacture of high quality vision measuring systems and are gaining market-share in Australia and New Zealand. The range includes both manual and CNC systems as well as field-of-view and horizontal digital vision systems that can replace older-style optical comparators.


Vision measurement systems are a key resource for any robust quality assurance system. They are reliable, repeatable and produce accurate 2D measurement results and report feature variation and trends. Whilst a number of manufacturers have both CMMs and vision measurement systems as part of their QC lab, smaller businesses still can’t afford the cost of a CMM – even though the relative cost of CMMs has fallen over the years, and often elect to start with a vision measurement system.

Vision measurement systems are now commonly supplied with touch trigger probing systems such as Renishaw PH6 fixed probe head coupled with TP20 probe system to enable features such as spheres and cones to be measured which enhances the capabilities of vision systems to full 3D measurement.

Vision measurement system selection

The first step in selecting a new vision measurement system is to identify, if known, the largest component that needs to be measured and then to choose a system accordingly noting the height of the components to be measured to ensure enough clearance in the Z-axis.

The choice of CNC or manual is usually dictated by the amount of components to be measured and the frequency of measurement tasks with CNC being the most popular.


As well as size and operation of the machine, other considerations such as zoom or telecentric lens and lighting choices need to be made.

The most popular Starrett vision measurement system sold so far in the ANZ is the AVR300-Z-M3-3LED TP system which has a 300 x 200 x 200 mm measuring volume, three channels of lighting, the popular M3 software and a touch probe for Z-axis measurements.
