reduce costs, improve quality and increase productivity

Vectro improves productivity by enabling greater throughput, cutting inspection costs and reducing rework.
All of this with the added benefit of improved quality.

1.
fast and
efficient

Vectro measures
quickly and automatically, 
allowing more to
be manufactured every
hour, without sacrificing
quality.





2.
accurate, repeatable
and reliable

Consistent positioning with
fixtured or robotically
guided measurements
eliminates human error
and ensures accurate results
every time.

VChange sensors
come with full calibration
certificates, 
traceability and a 
3 year warranty.

3.
Automatic
manufacturing decisions

Vectro automates checking
of parts against their
dimensional specification
with real-time go/no-go decisions, or
statistical analysis.





4.
modular and versatile

Vectro is compatible with
the full range of VChange sensor
heads, allowing the 
measurement of a diverse
range of feature shapes,
sizes and surface types.
For even greater versatility,
Vectro is tool changer
compatible to dynamically switch sensor heads.

5.
easy to integrate

Vectro can be built into any application with Third
Dimension’s easy-to-use Link 
integration software. 
Simple commands trigger 
measurements and retrieve 
results, leaving more time
to 
focus on the production 
process.

6.
dynamic user interface

The Vectro display presents
live profile information 
and measured values, 
making it even easier 
to focus on improving 
the quality of products.
