Two measurement systems in one!

Swift PRO Duo is the only video measuring system to incorporate an ergonomic measuring microscope.

Previously difficult-to-view samples can now be measured and inspected on the same system, in the same routine, by the same operator. Swift PRO Duo provides fast and accurate measurement of both routine and complex precision parts.

With a rich suite of measurement and reporting features, it is the right measurement tool for a broad range of applications, from electronics and aerospace to automotive, plastics and medical device manufacturing.


  • Optical microscope and video measurement system in one
  • Up to 200mm x 100mm measurement stage, 5μm stage accuracy
  • Advanced and robust measuring system in a compact size
  • Designed especially for toolmakers and shop floor operators
  • Take accurate measurements in seconds, with no need for pre-programming
  • Z-axis variant for height measurement
  • Patented optical ergonomic microscope offers high resolution surface inspection
  • Ideal for use on the shop floor and in the QC lab


Why video and optical measurement?

Dual video and optical measurement technologies provide the best of both worlds, so whatever component you are measuring, you can be sure you have the best tools for the job, in a single system, without any hold-ups.

Video measurement

Video measurement is ideal for routine components where edges of features can easily be identified.

The smart video measurement tools allow the operator to quickly detect and measure features accurately and repeatability.

The advantage of video edge detection is the practicality and overall speed of measurement.

Optical measurement

In order to take an accurate measurement, you need to clearly identify the edge of the feature being measured.

Swift PRO Duo incorporates the patented Dynascope® eyepiece-less measuring microscope, providing high contrast, microscope-resolution image of your components.

Superb optical clarity with the Swift PRO Dynascope optical head

Complex, or difficult-to-view features can be viewed in intricate detail, ensuring you can take accurate measurement of all you components, not just the easy ones! The superb microscope image also allows for high resolution visual inspection.

When measuring features without clear edges a video camera may be unable to detect the edges due to lack of contrast and this is where optical measurement is beneficial. The high resolution crisp image from the optical head enables you to accurately select features to measure. Typical examples of this would be for clear or black plastics and surface features on metal parts (where there is no contrast between the feature and the background).

Seamlessly switching from video measurement to optical measurement in the same routine, without delay, you can have the best measurement tool available all the time.

Dynascope® technology

Swift PRO Duo is the only system available to include the unique and patented eyepiece-less ergonomic measuring microscope.

The Dynascope® technology allows operators to take accurate measurements whilst wearing prescriptive glasses, safety goggles and contact lenses. Other system benefits include a large field of view and peripheral vision.

Measuring stage calibration, with NLEC

Swift PRO Duo 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.

Swift PRO Duo comes with a choice of industry leading M-series metrology software or robust QC 3000 microprocessor.

M-series measuring software

Renowned M-series software carries out basic to advanced measurement applications with ease and with minimal training. Intuitive user interface would appeal to a wide user base, ranging from machine operators on the shop floor to metrologists in the QC lab.

  • Intuitive PC-based metrology software enabling viewing on large monitors
  • Quick profile and surface measurement without pre-programming
  • Programmable light control
  • Easy reporting
  • CAD like Part View mark-up for easy inspection of the measured data
  • DXF import/export
  • Thread and wire measurement options
  • Multiple video tools, from cross hair to full video edge detection

QC 3000 microprocessor

Thanks to its sleek but robust industrial design, the QC3 000 is ideal for applications in a harsh production environment to measure 2-D geometric features quickly and easily.

The flat aluminium housing with integrated power pack and fan less passive cooling is extremely sturdy and tolerant to negative influences.

QC3000 Heidenhain microprocessor for Swift Pro

The 12.1” touchscreen of specially hardened glass supports multi-touch gesture control and can be operated with gloves.


  • Shortcut icons for measurement of common geometric features. (e.g. point, line, circle, slot and rectangle)
  • Video edge detection (VED) provides multiple tools for edge detection and selection of points for measurement
  • Measure the points manually or automatically 
  • Easily create reports generated immediately after measurement
  • Robust IP65 splash proof touch screen panel, ideal for the shop floor

Measurement Uncertainty

(X, Y)

  • Uncertainty formula U952D = 5+(6.5L/1000)µm

Where L = length in mm, using controlled conditions with 100x magnification at the standard measuring plane. Increased accuracies may be obtained over shorter measuring lengths and by in situ system calibration.

(Z) Z-axis accuracy 10μm, using controlled conditions with 100x magnification

Video camera

  • High definition 2MP video camera.


Patented twin pupil monoscopic Dynascope™, infinity corrected optical system, with pre-centred crossline graticule to both eyes.

  • Option of custom designed graticule, pre-centred to one eye

Magnification Options (System Total)

Quick change magnification options:

  • 1x objective, 10x total magnification
  • 2x objective, 20x total magnification
