GOM Optical desktop scanner for small components
Germany – GOM will be showcasing the optical desktop scanner Atos Scan-Port at Formnext 2015 in Frankfurt, Germany.
The scanner has been developed for measurement and inspection of small components, the company says. Atos Scan-Port is said to be ideal for digitising and inspecting cast and plastic parts as well as prototypes and electrodes with diameters of up to 200 mm. Functions range from simple 3D scanning tasks for applications such as 3D printing, reverse engineering and additive manufacturing, up to comprehensive shape and dimension analysis of components, GOM explains.
It features a 3+3 kinematic with three motorised and three manual axes. Recurring measurement tasks are simplified with the automated rotation, tilt and linear axis. The movements of lift and rotation table as well as the different tilting angles of the rotation table can be recorded with the motion replay software functionality – without the need for prior programming. Thus, when users need to measure identical multiple parts, measurement positions are simply played back.
