Baty Reveal Greater Vision with New Venture XT 

Baty has revealed its newly designed vision system, the Venture XT. As part of the Bowers Group; leading specialist in precision measurement equipment, this much anticipated vision system includes major advances in both capability and software for both contact and non-contact measurement.

Features include an extended 200mm measuring range in the Z axis, and new FEA optimised column design with integral counterbalance and revised Z axis and lens/touch probe assembly. The Venture XT also boasts faster X-Y axis drives, touch screen compatible software, touch screen precision joystick, greater field of view, and magnification up to 12 x zoom.

The enhancements include a major redesign of the software, providing users with a self-calibrating zoom lens with Field of View error correction, and improved auto-focus which can now find and measure from a distance in one move. The image stitching capability also allows a large XY area to be scanned and displayed as a single image. In addition, there is now a ‘layers feature’ that allows other geographical information like DXF files, dimensions and measured features to be overlaid into the camera image and reported.

 Geoff Jackson, Business and Product Development Director at Baty said: “We are delighted to announce the release of the new Venture XT; a sophisticated vision system that truly paves the way for high accuracy contact and non-contact measurement. The Venture XT received rave reviews following its unveiling at Control Exhibition in Stuttgart in April; feedback was excellent, and distributors especially liked the new field of view tools which have dramatically reduced program execution times. We are very excited to launch the product here in the UK.”
