Upgrade your performance

Swift is the perfect starting point to upgrade your measurement and inspection capabilities and improve your quality control routines.

With space at a premium, Swift doesn't take up much room, yet can make a big difference to your production quality. Rugged in construction, the unit has been designed to cope with the demands of a busy production environment.

Simple, compact, accurate

'Next generation' measurement software coupled with a high resolution video camera enables Swift to measure a wide variety of simple and complex features, quickly and simply.

With simplicity at its core, 'touch-to-measure' software can be used by shift workers or advanced users alike, simplifying work steps, reducing operator error, while minimising training requirements.

An array of video edge detection tools ensures accurate, repeatable results, no matter how many operators use the system.

Measuring stage calibration, with NLEC

Swift includes Vision Engineering's proven 200mm x 100mm precision measuring stage. The stage comes complete with factory-set Non-Linear Error Correction (NLEC) calibration to ensure optimum accuracy, traceable to international standards for the purposes of ISO9000.

Modular construction for future upgrade

Swift becomes Swift-Duo!

Difficult-to-view components? No problem.

Modular design means that you can easily add microscope measurement capabilities at a later date, allowing you to view and measure even low contrast black, white or transparent parts.

A high resolution ergonomic measuring microscope simply integrates with your existing Swift. Swift becomes Swift-Duo.

No need to switch systems. Both video and optical measurements occur seamlessly, in the same routine, without any delays.

Range of applications

Customers around the world use Swift for a wide range of non-contact measurement applications, including:

  • Electronic PCBs
  • Plastic parts (e.g. connectors, tubing, moulding)
  • Medical devices (e.g. tooling, coatings, implants)
  • Machined parts for aerospace, automotive and military use
  • General precision engineering many more applications.

Featuring touch2measure technology

Swift features 'next generation' multi-touch measurement software, featuring 'touch-to-measure' technology, making Swift exceptionally intuitive, easy to operate and easy to learn.

'Touch-to-measure' means that in addition to conventional mouse control, you can 'pinch' to zoom, 'swipe' to pan across an image and 'touch' to take a measurement.

You can even trace your finger around a complex shape to 'see' the feature.

Icon-based touch-screen control provides users with smartphone familiarity, with a Windows 7-based operating system allows for simple integration with applications such as Microsoft Excel (not included), or connection to network printers etc.

Software options for Swift measuring system

  • M2VED metrology software
    • Active video crosshair for automatic capture of data points
    • Intuitive interface with uncluttered easy navigation
    • PC based metrology software for manual stages
  • M3 metrology software
    • Simple yet powerful feature measurement
    • Touch screen operation
    • No multiple menu software options to distract the operator
    • CAD like Part View mark-up for easy inspection of the measured data.
    • Multiple video tools to match the job in hand, from cross hair to full video edge detection
    • Direct Compare option to allow simple CAD import of overlay drawings to check those complex geometric parts for a simple Go/No Go decision.
