Agr introduces DSG400 high-precision Dimensional Gauging System

Agr International introduces the Dimensional Sampling Gauge, Series 400 DSG400, the latest high-precision dimensional gauging system designed by Agr expressly for glass container measurement.

Agr International has officially introduced the Dimensional Sampling Gauge, Series 400 (DSG400).  This is the latest generation in a line of high-precision dimensional gauging systems designed by Agr expressly for glass container measurement.

While the DSG400 retains much of the look and feel of previous versions of Agr’s Dimensional Sampling Gauge, this version incorporates a multiplicity of new hardware, features and capabilities that further expand the handling, throughput, precision, communication and measurement functions of the DSG product line.

Some of the most prominent features incorporated in the DSG400 include an advanced high pixel density, USB 3 camera technology with optimized lensing and telecentric optics, expanded measurement algorithms for multiple critical measurements, hands-free job change, optimized toolset for expanded measurement of small ware, a Quad-core central computer, positive table positioning for enhanced thickness measurement and industry 4.0 communication protocols.

When performing the complicated measurements required for managing glass container quality, maintaining sufficient throughput without sacrificing precision is always a concern, The DSG400 overcomes this in several ways. An advanced no-job change feature makes it possible for the DSG400 to accept bottles of different sizes and shapes from the same or multiple lines without the need for an operator to adjust handling components or change parts.  This same enhanced tooling also facilitates positive bottle placement and increases the measurable thickness range for pharmaceutical and small format bottles. A new quad-core central computer system with a USB 3.0 camera interface and an embedded operating system provides the horsepower necessary to manage high-speed communication with the system’s multiple cameras. This increases overall processing speed and vision frame rates, making it possible to capture more images, with higher density, in less time.
