VisionLab can be used for first piece inspection, SPC sampling, final audits or it can be used for inspection using pick and place automation.

It is a 3D gauging system that is said to provide part measurements in less than seven seconds. The system can measure all profile features including pertinent GD&T characteristics, as well as all thread features using patented optics and software algorithms that use virtual system-22 thread wireframes. An integrated thread database provides point and click programming. An optional end-view feature measures and detects defects on both ends of parts measuring features such as recesses, inner/outer diameters, through holes and counterbores. Optional surface control is used to detect surface defects, such as bad plating, thread patch presence and quality, as well as measure knurling width, gap, and height. Finally, upper tooling and a bit kit are available for uneven parts or parts with a recess drive. VisionLab provides data reports and graphs with data collection that can be exported to third party statistical process control packages.

VisionLab is suitable for measuring and inspecting turned components and is intended to be in the lab or on the shop floor so that it can be utilised replacing manual inspection. Three models are available, including the VisionLab-75, which can handle parts up to 75mm length and up to 35mm diameter. In addition, the VisionLab-150 can handle parts up to 150mm length and 50mm diameter, while the VisionLab-X can be custom designed to fit most applications.

General Inspection also offers a range of high-speed inspection machines for bolts, screws, nuts, valve springs retainers, rivets, bushings and washers.
