Baty Vision Systems - Venture 3030-Touch-XT

The highly successful Venture Touch range combines both manual and CNC axis that cover two differing stage sizes. VI-3030-Touch-XT Venture Manual with motorised Z and autofocus, Fusion Touch software, 300 x 300 x 300 X, Y, Z measuring range

Venture Touch 3D

This advanced Vision system combines a manually operated X-Y measuring stage with a motorised Z axis. The advantage of this is that the servo motor driven Z axis can provide the all-important autofocus function for Z axis measurement without operator influence.

Suitable for the shop floor, the rugged design features a steel / granite base with fully integrated PC controller running Baty’s all new 3 axis touch screen software - Fusion Touch. The full HD touch screen can be mounted on an adjustable arm and the software is arranged in a portrait layout for ease of use.

Fusion Touch software features full geometric functionality so circles, lines, arcs and points can be measured using dedicated tools. Data points are automatically taken along the edge of the feature using Video Edge Detection then all measurements are automatically saved should the inspection need to be replayed for a batch of parts.

All measured features appear in the part view where they can be dimensioned. The dimensional part view that can then be printed or exported to CAD Tolerances are set for each dimension so that the final inspection reports can classify each dimension as a pass or fail.

Inspection playback

During this process the operator is guided through the inspection routine via the graphical part view. Once the stage has been positioned so that the feature appears in the camera’s view, the Video Edge Detection tools take over and measure the feature automatically. If features are on different planes, the Z axis drives under CNC control to the correct position as defined by the original inspection. All lighting and magnification conditions are also recorded and re-created as each feature is visited. The end result is a highly repeatable process with no operator influence.


The programmable LED lighting is also controlled using the touch screen. Segmented surface illumination,co-axial, through the lens and profile lighting conditions which can be adjusted to ensure that the feature edge is perfectly illuminated.


Venture Touch

As with all Ventures, a high precision zoom lens is featured as standard. This CNC version has 6 preset zoom positions which provide a magnification range from approx. 30x – 200x* which can be extended with the use of auxiliary lenses. Each preset position is pre-calibrated enabling the user to quickly select the optimum magnification for each measurement and continue measuring

Easy Reporting

In addition to a graphical representation of the measured part, detailed reports can be instantly created showing the feature name, nominal dimension, actual, error, upper and lower limits and a green pass or red fail label for each measured dimension in tabulated format. Geometric tolerance details can also be displayed along with a thumbnail view of the part and batch/customer information. The entire report can be duplicated as an

As a leading supplier of quality metrology instruments to organisations throughout the world, Bowers Group has developed into a respected global leader in the field of measurement. Our first-class reputation has been built on the continuing Group ethos of striving for excellence in both the comprehensive range of products that we supply and the many quality services that we provide to our customers. The Group’s aim is to build on its hard-won reputation and continue to exceed customers’ expectations. Baty International is one among Bower Group's Brands

Baty Internaitional has been in business since 1932. From its Gauging products, Baty soon diversified into non-contact measurement with Optical Profile Projectors, the Baty ‘Shadograph’ series has since become an industry standard in profile projectors. These products are still manufactured in the Baty facility in Sussex, England. Video Edge Detection systems (VED) were gradually developed as an extension of the profile projectors range, giving rise to increased accuracy, repeatability and measuring speed. Acquired by Bowers Group in 2010, Baty is an ISO 9001:2015 accredited company that offers a range of Metrology Instruments, designed, developed and assembled inhouse.
