6. Learning function and coordinate transfer
On the top-right window of OVM Pro, switch to the “Measure” window. Take “PCB
circuit board” as the example to introduce how to use the learning function.
6.1 Measuring request
First, let us be familiar with the measuring tasks together, as shown in the following
illustration.
61
Measuring requests:
○1 1—2 two circles distance, and establish the coordinate system, take the circle 1 as
the origin.
○2 3—4 two circles diameter.
○3 The both sides distance 5 of circuit board.
○4 The above dimensions need SPC control and statistic management.
As above measuring request, first put the circuit board on he work stage, move the Z
axis up and down until focus clearly, and then find where circle 1 location. As it is a
through hole, the top light should be turned off. Turn on the bottom light, but the
brightness should not be much brighter, otherwise, the accuracy will be affected. The
brightness values setting as 50% is better, and use the “Hair-off tools” to measure for the
first circle.
62
The same method can be applied to measure the second circle. As the measuring
request, calculate the two circles distance and establish the coordinate system. Let us
calculate the two circles distance first.
The two circles we take measurement just now can be shown in the both “object list”
and “Geometric window”. Select “Distance measure” and “Circles distance” in the
“Combined measure tools”, and then right click the mouse to select the two circles in the
“Geometric window”, the system will automatically calculate the two circles distance, and
show the measure data as follows.
63
If you think the contents in the report form is too much, you can also change it by
modify parameter setting in the “Output format” window. Operations are as follows:
Open “Window display” menu, and choose “Output format” to adjust the display
contents.
Choose “Line” optional icon, then select length only, click “OK”.
64
Click “Distance” element in the object list, then you will find some changes in the
data list.
Other elements can also be pre-established in this way, and we will not talk more
about this in future chapters.
6.2 Coordinate establishment
Next, we will establish a coordinate system by circle 1 and circle 2. It is very easy to
operate.
Click the “Establish coordinate” icon
on the top-right corner, the system will
automatically popup a window.
65
The “Two elements” mentioned above can be any two elements, such as, two points,
two circles, one point and one line, one point and one circle, two lines, etc. All of them can
be applied to establish the coordinate system by “establish coordinate” icon
. After
click “Yes”, right click the mouse to select in point means on circle 1 and circle 2 in the
geometric window, the system will automatically calculate a coordinate system, meanwhile
comes out a system notification to ask the directions in X axis or Y axis. Generally, the
system default is X axis, and will show the elements which are included in the coordinate
system. After setting, click “OK”, then the coordinate establishment complete. Meanwhile,
a coordinate system will be shown in the geometric window.
The other coordinate establishment methods are similar to the above, and will not be
discussed later.
66
The first measurement request we have completed, next we will finish the second
measuring tasks by measuring the diameters of circle 3 and circle 4.
We will use the circle measuring methods mentioned in before chapters, and
considering the workpiece features that circle 3 and circle 4 are not through holes, we must
use top light to take measure. Turn on the top light, and adjust to the suitable brightness
about 35%. As the border cannot be recognized clearly, we will not use “point groups of
circles” and “Box-select circle”, while using the “Hair-off circle” method to measure. After
measure completed, the measuring results will be shown both in the object list and
geometric window.
In the same way, set the output format for the circle.
67
Till now, we have completed the first two measuring requests; next we will finish
the third to measure the two edges distance of circuit board.
As the two edges are formed by the extreme margin, we will turn off the top light
and turn on the bottom light to be about 50%. According to the workpiece features, we can
choose “Box-select line” or “Hair-off” to measure. But considering some edges are
covered with burrs, the best method is to select “Hair-off tools”.
Click the mouse to select two points on the edge of the workpiece, and determine the
segment measuring range and scanning directions. Note that the yellow block box should
not be out of the image window. The picture follows.
68
As the border is too long to measure, in order to better reflect the workpiece actual
status, we need to measure many times by changing the other place to continue with line
measurement, and then link these segments in a long line.
Move the work stage, and continue to measure the segments along the border
directions until the entire border finished.
6.3 Regression line
Next we will collect all these segments in a straight line. Choose following tools
to set the segment numbers, and then right click the mouse to select the
already measured segments; the system will generate a complete straight line
automatically.
69
In the same way, measure the line on the opposite side. Next, select “Distance
measure” and “Line measure” in the compound tools, and then right click the mouse to
select the two circles in geometric window. The system will automatically calculate the
two lines distance, the data shows as follows.
70
The same method can also be applied for measuring the bigger circle, please refer to
chapter “3.9 Compound measuring function”.
6.4 SPC Control
All elements measurements have been completed, next we will carry out SPC
control for the already measured elements. Click the mouse to select an element in the
object list, and then double click on the attribute column of the controlled element, e.g.
take diameter of circle as the controlled element, just double click on the diameter column,
and the system will prompt popup a dialog box.
71
The controlled items can be modified according to your requests. Fill out the
standard values and tolerance, mark a “√” before SPC, then the control complete for the
measuring elements. The already controlled elements can be recognized by turning blue in
front.
Other elements can also be controlled in the same way.
Until now, we have completed all measuring tasks according to the measuring
requirements. For the full automatic system, the greatest strength is carrying out inspection
in full automatic ways. Before taking measurement, you should tell the machine how to
measure, what be measured. All we do as above is to tell the machine where it need to
inspect, what should be inspected, and record them in turns in the object list. These
procedures will help the machine to do full automatic inspection efficiently.
72
The machine itself does not know how to measure, only after we tell the machine
how to do, can the machine learn by itself later according to your ideas, so we called this as
“Learning function”. We will take much easier later when the machine learn by itself.
We will save the learning procedures after complete edit the program and put away
for future use. Click” Save project” in the “File” menu. And open project in the same
format.
Next, the program can be running by itself, the details please refer to Chapter”3.5
Object list and learning function area”.
6.5 Workpiece datum setting
Workpiece datum setting is measure standard of workpiece, and this standard will
avoid problem of workpiece different positions placed every time.
It is just find position standard before inspection, and following step will finished by
machine automatically.
73
Right click in object list, then it show right-click menu, choose last item “Workpiece
datum setting”, open “Workpiece datum setting” window.
74
Six location methods are including: fixture location, crosshair location, object circle
location, point-set location, point-set circle-point-set line location, point-set line location.
6.5.1 Fixture location
Design fixture according to measured product specs, then install the fixture on
machine workstage. Workpiece is fixed to fixture, so the relative location of workpiece and
machine is not change. This method is commonly used, system default is “Fixture
location”.
Click “Fixture location”, then press “Enter”, fixture location is set.
6.5.2 Crosshair location
Using crosshair location not changing specification of “Image window”, make
crosshair location as workpiece location.
Press “shift” and drag crosshair by left key, make alignment of crosshair and
workpiece borders, then right click to bound up system hint, press “Enter”, datum setting is
finished.
75
When running learning steps, system bound up hints as follows, press “Enter” to
start running learning step.
This method demand worpiece placed location is parallel to crosshair. Cause it is not
easy operation, so not commonly used.
6.5.3 Object circle location
Considering the round hole feature of the workpiece, this will need take the round
hole as the reference hole, and establish a coordinate system by the two round holes to
complete location for the workpiece, operations as follows.
Object circle location means that we take measurement for the two reference holes
by “object circle” measuring tools.
After selecting “objects circle location”, choose the check box for “set the workpiece
reference plane”, click “OK” to continue.
Find the first reference hole, then right click the mouse, and take the point as the
origin. Continue to find the second reference hole, and right click the mouse, the point will
determine the X axis directions. The inspection window follows.
The kind of location ways is very easy to operate, and with high location accuracy,
so it is widely used.
76

84
Suppose that the object that you are to measure is a slice of circuit board, please
operate according to the following steps.
1. Fix the first circuit board (as reference to the following measuring
position) to the platform (use a clamping apparatus to fix so as to prevent the
circuit board from slipping. You can use clay to help fixing too).
 Define the datum plane
85
 If you use cross line to locate, the second and subsequent circuit
board should always be vertical or horizontal to the first circuit board.

87
2. With the first circuit board, what we should do first is to define the
datum plane, but what’s the role of defining the datum plane? Because as we
have no clamping apparatus at hand, the position of each circuit board on the
platform can be the same, so we must tell the computer: Which position is
the standard position so that to avoid wrong judgments of the program which
are caused when rotating the circuit board.
3. Without clamping apparatus, we have the following five means to
define the datum plane: cross line positioning, object circle positioning, Point
Group circle positioning, Point Group circle and Point Group line positioning,
Point Group line positioning.
4. Presses Shift key, use the left mouse key to drag the Red Cross line
and let it aim at the right angle edge, and then right click to finish defining
the datum plane.

 Right click at hole B to define the first datum point.
 Right click at hole C to define the second datum point
89
 The line connects the first datum point and the second datum point
(Line BC) is the X-axis we defined.
6. In the same way, we can find hole B and right click to define the first
datum point; and then find Hole A, right click to define the second datum
point. The line connects the first datum point and the second datum point
(Line BA) is the Y-axis we defined.
7. After defining the datum plane, start learning from the hole to be
measured in the first circuit board. Click
will exit learning.
8. Take the first circuit board away from the platform and put the
second circuit board on the platform.
9. After manual learning, click

7.2.3 Data Analysis
Data form is divided into 3 parts in Data Analysis window: the upper part lists the
Data Analysis and some commonly used process norms, such as Ca, Cp and CpK. The
middle part lists the accuracy, precision of process, and process ability index. The lower
part lists the order number, item, standard value, and number of data, unqualified number
and its ratio.

7.3Graph Data
7.3.1 Mean and Range Control chart (X-R)
If the quality data can be reasonably grouped, use X control chart to analyze the
process and use R control chart to process variation
7.3.2 Median and Range Control chart (Xm-R)
Similar to X-R Control chart, but X control chart checking efficiency is lower while
the computation is simpler.
7.3.3 Specific Value and Mobile Range Control chart (X-Rm)
1. If the quality data cannot be reasonably grouped, use X-Rm control chart under the
following situations:
Only one data (such as manufacture efficiency and consuming rate) can be collected
at one time.
94
When the Process quality is very even so that no need to sample many times, such as
liquid density
When it is time-consuming and involves high cost to get the measuring value, such
as complicated chemical analysis and destructive inspection
2. If the quality data can be reasonably grouped, use X-R control chart to enhance
checking efficiency.
7.3.4 Mean and Range Control chart (X-S)
Similar to X-R Control chart, but the S Control chart is more efficient than R
Control chart in term of its checking ability while the computation is more complicated.
Use R Control chart if the sample number is less 10, otherwise use S Control chart.
95
7.3.5 Data Form
Data Form falls into two parts: the upper part shows the result of each set of
measuring (each row 2-6 samples) with their mean and range. The lower part displays the
order number of control data, the control item, standard value, and number of data,
unqualified number and its ratio.
7.4 Focusing
In Focusing window, select Enable Focusing, you will see a yellow box on the image
window. Move the platform then to place the edges within the box.
96
Click
, the platform will automatically do the focusing.
You can use the default setting to do the focusing if you are under a low enlargement.
Otherwise, you should mark “accurate” and use the biggest value (drag the bar to the right)
under “sensitivity” before auto-focusing.
7.4.1 Focusing Indicator
Select “start”, you will see a yellow box on the image window. Move the platform to
place the edges within the box. Move the Z-axis, you will get a graph in the focusing
indicator window. If this graph is very disorderly, then you may need to click reset and
move the Z axis to get a graph until it looks normal. Next, you move the Z-axis in the
opposite direction and aim the green vertical line at the blue little cross line (the peak of
the wave). By doing this, you will get a clear focus.
