TOKYO-Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the CNC Video Measuring System, “NEXIV VMZ-H3030”, suitable for measuring precision samples, such as semiconductor packages, electronic parts, and machined parts.


Product Information
Product Name: CNC Video Measuring System “NEXIV VMZ-H3030”
Availability: From October 1, 2018


Product Development Background

Using Nikon’s proprietary optical and image processing technology, the CNC video measuring systems “NEXIV series” automatically measures dimensions of various precision parts and electronic components. By analyzing acquired images and accurately detecting edges at high speed, the systems quickly measure samples with complicated shapes.

Utilizing the high build quality and functions of the existing NEXIV VMZ-R series, the NEXIV VMZ – H3030 provides greater precision, allowing Nikon to support measurement applications that require demanding quality control.


CNC Video Measuring System NEXIV VMZ-H3030 available from October 1, 2018.

Key Features

Highly Accurate and Fast Measurements

Higher accuracy is achieved with the high precision linear encoder and motion stage. In addition, the fast image transfer speed (frame rate: 30 fps) and lighting control have accelerated overall measuring throughput.

Measurement Flexibility

With the high performance TTL* Laser Autofocus, transparent samples of 0.1 mm thickness can be detected. Furthermore, the ring illumination’s angle adjustment improves edge detection of complex shapes, responding to the measurement needs for samples such as machined parts, molding parts, high-density PCBs, and 300 mm semiconductor wafers.
*TTL: Through the lens

Advanced Operability and Software

Measurements can easily be done with fewer procedures to create teaching files, as well as utilizing comprehensive functions, including “customizable screen” and “offline teaching.” Highly valuated “NEXIV VMZ-R series” software is available with the VMZ-H3030, making it possible to add functions suitable for the application, such as image synthesis and analysis and generating inspection reports.
