Optical Measurement for Rapid Camshaft Inspection

Accurate, Repeatable, Reliable Camshaft Measurement

The automotive industry’s necessity for precision components is imperative to ensure maximized performance. To keep pace with the rising quality standards, the need for advanced equipment to verify component accuracy as well as increase production throughput is required.

VICIVISION’s advanced solutions are accurate, fast, repeatable, and most importantly reliable. Our non-contact, optical measurement equipment provides manufacturers with optimal results, increasing throughput and proving a fast ROI for automotive businesses, specifically accurate camshaft measurements.

Ensuring the integrity of your quality control processes for a wide range of automotive products and abiding by the stringent quality specifications of your customers is paramount. VICIVISION systems offer the precision required for automotive manufacturing of critical components with a significant improvement in speed and machines to suit a variety of quality needs.

MTL Product Range

The MTL product range of optical measuring machines is designed to measure turned and ground parts directly on the shop floor. Our standard multi-point thermal compensation allows for accurate measurements outside the quality lab, making it the ideal tool to help your operators keep production moving fast and efficiently.

The wide-open measurement area and optics that hide between measurements, allow for easy and safe loading of your parts. Whether manually loading parts or running a fully automated cell, the manually loading parts or running a fully automated cell, the MTLs are designed for safe, efficient, and simple operation.

Powerful Software

The MTL software provides the ability to easily measure critical features on your parts. User-friendly measurement tools allow even new operators to measure: small radii, diameters, lengths, chamfers, roundness, coaxiality, and runouts. These measurements are performed simply and easily in one program.

The addition of the VICIVISION camshaft inspection software takes the fast and easy operation of our system and applies it to camshaft inspection. With one tool, our software can provide:


  • Basic radius validation
  • Maximum Lift
  • Deviation from the theoretical law of motion
  • Deviation from the theoretical velocity
  • Deviation from the theoretical acceleration
  • Basic profile runout

Increased Production

Inspections in a matter of seconds, programs in just minutes

Operators are more independent during inspection.

Measurement Reports

Measurement is not influenced by manual intervention.

It allows to set tool offset before values are out of tolerance.

Working Area

The live image of the piece displayed by the software, combined with the LED illuminated extensive working area, gives a clear vision of the conditions of the component being measured.

The retractable sensors enabled during loading and unloading provide reinforcement, with additional one of a kind protective bumpers.

Ergonomic Design

The ergonomic piece clamping lever has a considerably wide grip, which is suitable both for left and right-handed operators, and prevents obstruction of the view when clamping or unclamping the piece.

Cutting-edge software

The brand new MTL 8.10 version is designed to improve the control phase and further extend the number of possible measurements. It includes specific tools for static and dynamic measurements, and dedicated tools for threads nuts, camshafts, turbines, etc.

Advanced software features

New automatic features help the operator to get measurements: self-programming, automatic loading of the part program, step by step assisted programming, DXF comparison.

Measurements report

The software allows the operator to print or export complete and custom pdf measurement reports. Results of measurements on histograms for immediate consultation.
