GOM Scanner captures 2 x 16 million measuring points per scan
Germany – The latest addition to GOM’s range of industrial 3D scanners, Atos Triple Scan 16M, captures two times 16 million measuring points per scan and is claimed to be suitable for quality control of medium-sized components with high-resolution requirements.
According to GOM (Gesellschaft für optische Messtechnik), applications include measuring and inspection of complex injection moulded parts or turbine blades, where fine leading and trailing edges play an important role.
Fringe projection scanners perform full-field and non-contact part measurements. According to the supplier, all models follow the 3-in-1 sensor concept: Atos Triple Scan uses the left and right cameras individually in combination with the projector.
During a single scan three views are captured, instead of just one. GOM says that the new model accelerates the measuring process when scanning complex parts by requiring fewer single scans. It is also able to scan into deep pockets. The scanners operate with Blue Light Technology in an LED projection unit, which enables measurements to be carried out regardless of ambient lighting conditions and surface structure.
The GOM software automatically determines the 3D coordinates in a high-resolution point cloud (ASCI/STL) and the polygon mesh then generated describes freeform surfaces and primitives, which can be compared with the drawing or also directly with the CAD data during shape and dimension analysis.
GOM adds that the scanner is available in 16, five and eight million pixel versions and different measurement volumes can be achieved with pre-adjusted optics. Automated quality control is provided by the standard Atos ScanBox 3D measuring machine. The complete cells provide all measurement and inspection processes up to inspection reports, automatically, the supplier adds.
