GOM Device for 3D measurement of small, medium parts
Size and design are said to make the unit adaptable to applications and scanning environments.
German company GOM, which specialises in optical measuring technology, will be presenting its new Atos Core optical 3D scanner (photo) for measurement and inspection of small to mid-sized parts at Euromold 2013.
The company said the Atos Core sensor forms the basis for a diverse range of measuring tasks, from simple 3D scanning to fully automated measurement and inspection processes. The sensor is said to feature optics and electronics integrated into a very small sensor head. The compact, book-shaped form provides it with high stability and enables it to conduct measurements in narrow spaces. The sensor head can be quickly exchanged, depending on the measuring area, the company noted.
Atos Core is reportedly capable of a range of measurement applications, from 3D scanning or reverse engineering to rapid prototyping. Fully automated inspection is available with the GOM Scan operating software and can be combined with Atos Professional software. Measurement and inspection can be performed manually or in a fully automated mode, according to the manufacturer.
The stereo camera set-up means that the sensor is self-monitoring, and blue-light technology facilitates accurate measurements regardless of the ambient lighting conditions, the supplier explained.
The company also offers mobile 3D inspection systems for large parts. A new unit in the Atos Scan-Box range, the 6130 model, is a mobile 3D measuring machine for components up to 3m in height and up to 2 tonnes in weight, the company said. For the measurement of particularly large parts, the cell is said to be equipped with a light gate system that allows for simple loading with cranes and forklifts as well as palette trucks.
The fully equipped plug-and-play measuring cell combines industrial hardware with reliable software for production-related inspection and quality control.
