At Control 2017, GOM is presenting its complete Atos Scan Box series, including Atos Capsule, an optical measuring machine for quality assurance with high image resolution, and a mobile and flexible measuring system that can be used directly on-site of the measuring object.
GOM, based in Brunswick, Germany, is expanding its Atos series with a new sensor for full-field digitising and inspection of contoured part geometries. The fringe projection system is designed for production quality assurance of small to medium-sized parts and excels by its high precision for fine details. In addition to surface deviations from CAD, GD&T data and detailed information is derived automatically.
According to the company, Atos Capsule combines GOM technologies, such as Blue Light Technology and the triple-scan principle, with a housing design for industrial use that provides protection against dust and splashing water. Thanks to the maximum stiffness of the unibody housing, the sensor achieves the required process stability for automated applications and precise measuring results, GOM says.
With the standardised measuring machine Atos Scan Box, the Atos Capsule system is used for automated measurements and inspection. It is a complete optical 3D measuring machine that was developed for efficient quality control in production and manufacturing processes. Flexible and partly mobile solutions are available for different part sizes and applications. Using the photogrammetric add-on sensor Atos Plus, bigger components or several parts can be measured simultaneously with an Atos Scan Box, while at the same time increasing the overall accuracy.
Two versions of the Atos Capsule are available with different levels of detail. The system captures 8 or 12 million points per scan with changeable measuring areas. The dimensions of the sensor, its low weight and the short working distance simplify its application in practice.
Implementing measurements directly into the process
Today, due to increasingly shorter production and development times, the inspection of tools, systems and components takes place directly during the ongoing production. GOM responds to this challenge of industry with mobile and flexible measuring systems that can be used directly on-site of the measuring object.
Pontos Live, GOM’s mobile optical 3D measuring system, is primarily used for online measurement and part positioning. It enables an assembly analysis that is based on augmented reality. Using dynamic referencing, the part as well as the sensor can be moved freely – regardless of the interferences of a production environment.
Atos Compact Scan, the compact class of the Atos series, excels by its flexibility: System, stand and laptop fit into one suitcase and can be transported easily. Thanks to the changeable measuring areas, the robust and precise sensor enables digitising and inspection of small parts up to large tools. Depending on the requirements, the sensor’s accuracy and resolution can be adapted flexibly.
Tritop, the handheld photogrammetry system, enables fast and precise measurement of individual 3D coordinates of large-volume objects, such as wind power plants, aircraft or ships. The system is used handheld and wireless. The measurement can be evaluated immediately on the laptop.
