El Paso, Texas - Southwest Venture Plastics (SVP), a leading custom thermoplastic injection molder with full ISO/IATF 16949 certifications, proudly announces its recent investment in cutting-edge metrology equipment: the Zeiss Mass Accura Coordinated Measuring Machine (CMM) to the Quality Department. This strategic addition to SVP's capabilities significantly bolsters its ability to cater to customers requiring pinpoint accuracy for parts of various sizes and confirms the part's conformance to specifications. With one of the largest scanning machines in El Paso, SVP can now provide customers with large part requirements a better CMM option compared having to ship the part to another service provider located outside the area.


The Zeiss Mass Accura CMM is designed to cater to the intricate needs of the plastics industry. This advanced measuring machine offers versatility, speed, and state-of-the-art technology, making it ideal for assessing complex shapes and contours. Notably, its high-speed scanning capabilities enable rapid data capture, especially for clients with multi-tool packages.

What sets the Zeiss Mass Accura CMM apart is its integration with the latest Calypso software. Calypso is a versatile platform accommodating various measurement techniques, including touch-trigger probing, and optical measurement. This integration streamlines the process by seamlessly importing CAD (Computer-Aided Design) models, thereby reducing programming time and minimizing errors. Operators benefit from real-time visualization, allowing instant identification of any deviations from design specifications or quality issues.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
