Originally, a manufacturer of high precision dial indicators and other associated instruments such as cylinder bore gauges. Baty soon diversified into non-contact measurement with Optical Profile Projectors. The Baty ‘Shadograph’ range has since become an industry standard in profile projectors. These products are still manufactured in Sussex, England in accordance with ISO 9001:2008.

Now part of Bowers Group, Baty offers a range of precision measuring instruments from Hand Tools to Vision Systems, offering solutions for almost every measurement application in modern manufacturing.

  • Baty Vision Systems - VuMaster 2D Manual / 2D CNC
    VuMaster is a manual 2D vision system with a massive difference. Due to its innovative absolute 2D scale system, the newly designed VuMaster does not have a conventional moving stage or encoders - just a floating measuring camera that moves anywhere in the measuring range. The result is fast, accurate, ‘non contact’ measurement over a much larger measuring range - 400mm x 300mm to be exact! Because the camera moves and the part stays still, there is often no need for expensive and time consuming work holding devices. VuMaster is either operated manually or inspection routines can be recorded and stored. When played back, these ‘programs’ guide the operator through a pre-defined inspection procedure recreating the same lighting conditions and using ‘Video Edge Detection’ to automatically ’capture’ feature data. Finally, a report is generated in the form of a fully dimensioned drawing of the measured part.

  • Baty Vision Systems - Venture Touch
    The highly successful Venture range includes both manual and full CNC systems that cover two standard measuring ranges: The VI-2510 has a 250mm x 125mm x 165mm X,Y,Z measuring capacity and the VI-3030 has 300mm x 300mm x 165mm. 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 stand with fully integrated PC controller running Baty’s all new 3 axis touch screen software - Fusion Touch. The full HD touch screen is 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 selected for dimensioning resulting in a dimensioned part view that can 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. Lighting The programmable LED lighting is also controlled using the touch screen. Segmented surface illumination, through the lens and profile lighting conditions can be adjusted to ensure that the feature edge is perfectly illuminated.

  • Baty Vision Systems - Venture 3D CNC
    Venture CNC models take the power of fusion software one stage further by completely automating the inspection process. Now advanced features like scanning and best fitting can be done quickly without taking up the time of skilled operators. CNC programming is a simple teach and repeat process. Just measure the part once and a full CNC program is created automatically. The zoom lens can also be controlled so that magnification changes are all recorded into the program. Large Measurement Volume The use of a touch probe is optimised on a CNC system. Measurements from data points taken using the touch probe can be combined with those taken using video edge detection for optimum speed and reduced inspection times. A probe changer rack can be installed so that probe modules fitted with a variety of pre-calibrated styli can also be used in the same inspection. When a change of stylus is required, the system automatically puts the current probe module back in the rack and picks up the next to continue the inspection process. When programming using the touch probe, use only the minimum points required to define each element. Then simply edit in the optimum number of points for each element. The new probe path is then automatically created when the program is played, cutting down both programming and inspection time.

  • Baty Vision Systems - ShadoMaster
    The ShadoMaster is a horizontal camera based video inspection system that is particularly aimed at turned part measurement. The cast iron stage has tooling slots aligned with the optical path to facilitate the mounting of work holding fixtures such as vee-blocks and centres. A selection of video edge scanning tools scan the profile of the shaft and Baty’s Fusion software converts this scanned data into a dimensioned drawing of the measured part. Interchangeable fixed objective lenses are used to determine the field of view and pixel size which can be sub-micron for close tolerance requirements. The VI-3015H can measure shafts up to 300mm in length with a maximum diameter of 150mm providing the overall weight does not exceed 25KG. The PC based controller runs on a Windows 7 operating system and is completely integrated within the chassis so the installation is both quick and easy with no trailing cables. The system is also supplied with LED surface illumination which is ideal for illuminating the various facets of form cutting tools for example. The LED lighting consists of 16 high intensity white LEDS which can be switched on in clusters to form a segment which can be radially positioned by using the mouse. This means that the light can be positioned exactly where it needs to be in order for the edge detection tools to measure the edges that you are interested in. Once programmed, the lighting conditions are reproduced by the software for every inspection to ensure optimum repeatability.
